We have already witnessed the play setters like Mesut Ozil providing immaculate balls to someone like Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Some unreal one man shows by the likes of Dimitri and Payet and Gareth Bale have also caught our eyes.

But who are the top ten guys we should to remain on the lookout for in the knock out stages of Euro 16?

Let us find out.

Gareth Bale (Wales)

The world’s most expensive player, Gareth Bale’s dream time at Euro 16.

There is no doubt that Belgium will have Gareth Bale’s name at the top of the list of the persons to take care of in the quarter finals.

This man has made the difference in Wales’ to reach up to the quarter finals by scoring 3 crucial goals.

Without him Wales is a good team but with him.

If there is one person you need to keep an eye on in the quarter finals, then it must be the Real Madrid striker, Gareth Bale.

Dimitri Payet (France)

France had the final laugh in all these encounters was Dimitri Payet.

He has two late goals to his credit already and the kind of energy which he is showcasing at the Euro ’16 has certainly elevated his rank among the global fraternity of footballers.

He was the most talked and most improved player in recent time specially his first goal to win the opening encounter for france in this Euro Cup 2016.

Leonardo Bonucci (Italy)

Italians has rediscover their clinical approach after couple of underwhelming major tournaments.

Antonio Conte has installed a workhorse mentality in this team who defend as a unit and posses very unpredictable attacking powers.

Leonardo Bonucci has been their best player in the tournament spearheading the 3-5-2 system from the back and he looks unplayable at times.

If Italy were to reach final Leonardo Bonucci will sure make a big claim for Golden Ball.

Eden Hazard (Belgium)

Eden Hazard was instrumental in this game as well as Belgium absolutely demolished Hungary by 3 goals to none.

It will be amazing to see him line up against the Welsh defenders in the quarter finals.

Toni Kroos (Germany)

German manager, Joachim Low, has made no secret of his admiration for Kroos and has tipped him to be of paramount importance to this German line up.

Kroos along with the likes of Gareth Bale has made into almost all the Euro XIs announced after the league stage by various sports pundits.

Lets see how Germans deal with Italy, Toni Kroos who has really been cruising with his set ups in this Euro Cup.

Antoine Griezmann (France)

With 3 goals, he is one of the three leading scorers in the Euro Cup so far.

In their quest against Ireland in the Round of 16 match, France went a goal down immediately after the start of play.

Within the span of 3 minutes, Antoine Griezmann changed the whole dimension of the game by scoring two sizzling goals bring France in an unassailable position.

Jakub Blaszczykowski (Poland)


Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

Bringing Portugal back almost from the exit door of the stadium as he scored two goals against Hungary.

Ronaldo is leading Portugal and he is motivated enough to make this tournament worth our time. Let’s see what tricks he has up his sleeve in the quarter final against Poland.

Jakub Blaszczykowski (Poland)

Poland were installed as dark horsed before the tournament with Robert Lewandowski spearheading the attack but he has failed to score in the opening four games for Poland.

But and unlikely sourse Jakub Blaszczykowski has emerged as Poland saviour in two consecutive games and he looks in fine form.

Mario Gomez (Germany)

He is the man of dark passages, who scores in the most pressure situations.

He has played big tournaments enough to deal with their pressure and felt completely at home as he dispatched the ball for a trip inside the Slovakian goal post in the Round of 16 match.

Joachim Low has entrusted Gomez with the responsibility of leading German attack and that is one big responsibility to take.
