Qatar 2022: Rio Ferdinand chooses the best defender in the World Cup

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand appointed Croatian Josko Gvardiol as the best central defender in the 2022 World Cup.

Gvardiol shone in Qatar as his country finished third.

“I think Gvardiol was my favorite centre-back at the World Cup,” said Ferdinand.

“He’s young, 20-years-old, to come in and perform the way he did, and he’s very mature and very calm.

“He’s really good with the ball in the early stages, and he gets out a lot,” said Ferdinand, speaking on FIVE’s YouTube channel.

Guardiol has started all seven of Croatia’s matches at Qatar 2022, scoring once.
