Georges Mikautadze of Georgia is no doubt my player of the tournament so far. His performance has gone under the radar because he’s not a big name player, but his stats speaks for themselves. He’s been exceptional :+1:t3:


Jamal Musiala of Germany is my best performing player at Euro 2024 so far. The 21-year-old attacking midfielder has been Germany’s most effective attacking force, scoring a goal in each of the first two group stage games. He is ranked as the 13th best player at the tournament so far.

Other top performing players include:

  • Giorgi Mamardashvili (Georgia) - The 23-year-old Valencia goalkeeper has been the best in his position, making a record 11 saves in a single match against Czechia.

  • Toni Kroos (Germany) - The 33-year-old Real Madrid midfielder has been treating fans to passing masterclasses and displaying his super-high football IQ. He is ranked as the 7th best player at Euro 2024.

  • N’Golo Kanté (France) - The 33-year-old former Chelsea midfielder has bossed the midfield in France’s first two games after coming out of international retirement.

  • Ivan Schranz (Slovakia) - The 30-year-old player has been the attacking leader for one of the surprise teams of the tournament so far, scoring two big goals.

While many big name stars have underwhelmed so far, Jamal Musiala has been the breakout star, delivering consistently excellent performances to lead Germany’s attack. Veteran midfielders like Toni Kroos and N’Golo Kanté have also rolled back the years with commanding displays.
