Robin Olsen | GK | Sweden
The Sweden shot stopper pulled off some sharp saves to deny Ilkay Gundogan, Jonas Hector, Thomas Muller and Mario Gomez to keep his side on a par with the world champions, making clear that it would take something special for them to get a winner. Unfortunately for Olsen, Toni Kroos delivered just that at the death.

Xherdan Shaqiri | RM | Switzerland
Shaqiri was lively for Switzerland throughout their tight battle with Serbia, having eight attempts throughout the game. He had failed to hit the target in his first seven, but the exceptional eighth proved definitive as he sealed a crucial win for Switzerland, even if his celebration might land him in trouble.

Toni Kroos | CM | Germany
It was Kroos’ sloppy pass to Ilkay Gundogan that allowed Sweden to pounce and create Ola Toivonen’s opening goal, but he more than made up for it in the closing seconds with an excellent strike past Robin Olsen.
More than just the minds of those watching, the midfielder blew Group F wide open with that effort and it was a great way to cap off a sound display.
Kroos had more touches, passes and shots than anyone else and created two chances for his side as well.
James Rodriguez | LM | Colombia
With Colombia now a point behind Japan and Senegal, James has helped get his side's campaign going after a false start.
Ahmed Musa | ST | Nigeria
The striker’s lovely first touch in the box set him up for a fine finish to give Nigeria the lead against a frustrating Iceland but he outdid himself later on when he went on a wonderful run down the wing, cut inside, took it past the goalkeeper and scored to confirm the win. No wonder he has been nicknamed ‘Lionel Musa’.

Romelu Lukaku | ST | Belgium
The striker capitalised on key passes from Dries Mertens and Thomas Meunier to fire home his second double of the tournament and put himself in contention for the Golden Boot.
The 25-year-old is looking strong at the top of the Rode Duivels attack and set up a couple of chances as they dominated against Tunisia.
Harry Kane | ST | England
Two perfectly struck penalties and a lucky knock off his heel saw Harry Kane net his first World Cup hat-trick and go top of the goal chart after two games.
He was instrumental in England's biggest ever World Cup win and will be hungry for more after they booked their place in the next round.
