5 – Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United)

Kieran Trippier came back to England a complete defender, after conquering Spain with Atlético Madrid.

The former Juventus man has endured a disrupted campaign this year. His fall-out with Pep Guardiola means he is now playing at Bayern Munich, but don’t get it twisted, João Cancelo is a top-quality right-back…oh, and a great left-back too. Very few players in the world possess the kind of versatility he does. Top clubs will be monitoring his situation with City and Bayern.

One of the most complete defenders in the world today. James can play as a wing-back, a traditional right-back, a defensive midfielder, and sometimes a centre-back. Recce James is a strong defender who is capable of influencing the game from anywhere because of his impressive passing range, strength, pace, technique, and an eye for the occasional spectacular goal.

1- Achraf Hakimi (PSG)

The first African player to be named in FIFA World XI since Didier Drogba (2007). Hakimi proved at the World Cup that he is capable of being a defensive leader, despite being known for his pace and attacking attributes. Hakimi plays like a defensively sound winger, and because of his incredible pace, he dominates the right flank consistently. The PSG star, who also contributed immensely to a historic Moroccan national team showing in Qatar, is currently the best right-back in the world.
