Antoine Griezmann Paul Pogba or Toni Kroos who would you build a team around – ESPN FC

Interesting question.

Of the names actually mentioned in the article I’d agree with the Pogba decision the most but even then I’m iffy. My only thing is that he is yet to fully convince me in any big game I’ve seen him in. Hopefully that changes soon.  As Gab Marcotti said he has all the tools you want in a player and he plays in the engine room. At 23, he’s younger than Kroos and Griezmann and will likely always be ahead of Weigl and Alli in terms of quality and experience.

That being said, Neymar was the first name that came to my mind. He’s just one year older than Pogba and has already won so much. He’s probably not captain material but he can be a leader and provide that winning mentality from the front. He still has maturing to do, they both do, but he’s already proven himself in terms of big games. True, he’s had Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta to help him out but Pogba hasn’t had any slouches around him.
