The quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup have been and gone, leaving a trail of euphoria and tears in their wake.

Some players could be forgiven for letting such an occasion get to them, but Belgium's Kevin De Bruyne produced another nerveless display as he helped the Red Devils surge past pre-tournament favourites Brazil.

Manchester City's creator-in-chief scored a sensational effort from 20 yards and provided a constant offensive threat, earning himself a score of 92/100 on the Goal Pressure Index, presented by Sure and powered by Opta.

De Bruyne is joined in the Team of the Round by Croatia lynchpin Luka Modric, who produced another measured, controlled display to help his country knock out Russia.

The Real Madrid midfielder enjoyed a slice of good fortune when his penalty crept past Igor Akinfeev during the shootout, but his unrelenting dominance in the centre of the park earned him a healthy score of 84/100.

Between the sticks, Jordan Pickford proved crucial for England once again. The Everton custodian made three fantastic saves to keep Sweden at bay and help the Three Lions progress to the final four, earning himself a score of 88/100 in the process.
