What were people expecting from Carlos Sanchez? He’s known to be shit.

Maybe a Sterling-Lewandowski front pairing.

Yeah Sanchez was not only mediocre, he was by far the most shit player in the tournament.

I have to say I completely disagree on Mascherano. He missed a couple of silly passes and was overrun a few times (totally expected at his age), but in several passages he still was the driving force for whatever little Argentina had to offer. Re-watch that second half against Nigeria and the guy was making good tackles left and right and pushing his team forward.

Pepe was poor? Disagree, Portugal generally were a no midfield team, actually a player like Joao Mario or Bernardo Silva belongs in this thread

Yeah, one could expect some good things from Werner. But Leipzig plays in a very specific way with specific players next to him. Didn't see it coming that Germany would be ousted like this though. At the same time I didn't expect much of Müller, özil etc. on that one. The first tournament of Reus (since 2012)? This could have been a beautiful story but it was not.
De gea has been worst than in 2016 instead of progressing as we could expect or wish. It can have to do with the firing of Lopetegui though he was not good in the pre-wc games already (neither was Lloris but he has recovered his actual level in this tournament).
As for Lewa, it was predictable (Poland, in the group of death, desire to leave Bayern).
Jesus?
No, others are hardly dispappointments but more confirmed "not-world-class players" if there was ever any doubts. Or they played in teams which were not among the best so they were particularly exposed (i.e. Guerreiro with Portugal... not sensed to be world class but still able to do better than that. Certainly of his responsabilty but not only, perhaps).
