Former member of the Barcelona trident Neymar, experienced leader and defender Thiago Silva, one of the best Right Backs in the world Dani Alves and then Marquinhos are four Brazilians playing in PSG and expected to feature in Russia 2018.

The 25-year old ranked higher than clubmate Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard and Harry Kane.
The research considered several factors such as contract with present club and the status of the club, age, international status, appeal and marketability et al. The study looked at the most desirable players in the top leagues in Europe. Players valued at over £40 million were considered.
Tottenham Hotspur duo of Harry Kane and Dele Alli ranked high on the list due to their impressive results posted for club and country. Alli is the second most valuable, and it is logical considering his age, achievements already and potential. He is estimated to be worth £137 million while his teammate Kane would be around £135 especially if he gets the Three Lions captaincy armband on a permanent basis.

His teammate Messi is valued at £134 million even though the Argentine is not likely to exit the Nou Camp in his prime. Continue reading “NEYMAR IS THE WORLD MOST VALUABLE PLAYER”
The Brazilian national football side has recently been struggling to perform at their traditional top tier form and this is evident by the fact that they were eliminated from the 2015 edition of the Copa America after losing against Paraguay and failed to qualify for the FIFA Confederations Cup for the first time in over 15 years.
1 year later and the 2016 edition of the Copa America Centenario kicked off and Brazil once again disappointed after losing against Peru. This defeat saw Brazil being eliminated from the tournament in the group stages which is something that had not happened since 1987 and it was ultimately the end of Dunga as the manager was later fired.
On June of 2016, Adenor Leonardo Bacchi was selected as the man to replace Dunga and the resurgence of Brazil has already been felt as Brazil recently secured their qualification spot for the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup after having collected 33 points from their 14 opening qualification matches which is enough to qualify for the approaching worldwide competition.

Barcelona defeated opponents Eibar 4-0 in the La Liga last week to keep up the pressure on Real Madrid who seem not as confident after ending their unbeaten run.
The famed MSN Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar did the required. Denis Suarez joined the trio on the score sheet as the Spanish outfit eased to a comfortable win over their opponents.
Barca lost something in the process of completing their 4-0 rout over their hosts. Sergio Busquets was pulled put ten minutes into the affair. Gonzalo Escalante forced the player out, leaving him with a terrible ankle injury.
The visitors started the game slowly with Andres Iniesta and Busquets not giving them their usual advantage. Eibar played high pressing football but could not create good chances. Suarez had a chance to ease the pressure when Messi sent the ball but he lost it.
It took a while for them to settle and Dennis broke the deadlock when he scored from 25 yards in the 31st minute. Neymar got his chance but lost it.
Suarez did better, probably taking a cue from his namesake but it hit the framework just before the referee called time on the first half. Continue reading “BARCELONA THRASH EIBAR 4-0”
