RB           ENG       Manchester United        76>80    Chris Smalling

LB           RUS        Zenit St. Petersburg        78>82    Domenico Criscito                          

Great debut for the defender: played perfectly in defense and joined almost every attack of his team. Has assisted Kerzhakov in scoring the first goal. Voted to be in TOTW by both Russian sources.
