Mateo Kovacic of Croatia is the second on our list of unsung heroes, the midfielder put on a great show of pure footballing genius against Canada in the second group stage game, he made five tackles and created four chances against Canada, he record 93% passing accuracy which is the best in a single World Cup match.
The last player to match or surpass each stat in a single world Cup game was Lothar Matthäus for Germany against Yugoslavia in 1990.
