Rating in 2018: 45

age: 26

Tim Werner’s first World Cup could not have gone much worse than it did. In three starts for Germany in Russia ’18, Werner did not score and, as a result, die Mannschaft did not leave the group stage.

Werner is still prone to Cole hitting stretch marks – here’s why Chelsea it was convenient to allow him to return RB Leipzig for half what they paid for him in 2020 – but one good stretch is all that coach Hansi Flick needs from him in Qatar.
