Worst World Class Footballer: Semi Final 1

Opinion

Our quest to find the worst footballer in the world deemed ‘world class’ goes on as the voting for the heats has whittled our prospective field down to just eight remaining footballers. Having mixed them up for the semi finals, it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty and find our which two will make it into Sunday’s final.

Here is how semi final one shapes up:

Adrien Rabiot (PSG/France)

The winner of heat one with a third of the voting, the most surprising thing for me was that Rabiot was not the runaway winner of heat one. It turned out to be a very tight heat in the end with only seven percent separating the Frenchman with second place. Still, he did win and he could be the favourite to get through the semi final as well.

Thomas Lemar (Monaco/France)

Another big surprise is the number of people that didn’t vote for Lemar. It appears the Monaco man has his fans in our voters as he only got 29% of the votes which was just about got him past Thiago Silva in third place. He was only four percent off winning heat two though so there could be a chance he will make the final.

David Luiz (Chelsea/Brazil)

The runaway winner of the heat voting was Luiz who clocked up a whopping 60% of the votes in heat three to cruise to victory. It seems the voters are not fans of Chelsea’s resident Sideshow Bob impersonator but with other big vote getters, will he continue to rack up the votes himself?

Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid/Spain)

Beat Vincent Kompany in a straight vote-off to get into the semi finals, both he and the Belgian centre back only received 20% of the votes in the heat four to tie for second. Carvajal won the vote-off with ease though so could he be a dark horse for the final?

As always you have a day to cast your votes in the Twitter poll below. Remember that you are voting for the player you think is the worst here with the top two heading into Sunday’s final.
