    Messi again? How is Vinicuis jnr better than Osihmen. ? As a striker I will always chose Osihmen over Haland . This ranking is absolutely ridiculous.

    • Ahhhh u can debate osimhen and haaland, but leave vini jr out of the debate pls. That dude is on his own world of soccer.

    Marca even try let’s wait and see what CAF will do. That is why I’ll advise Osimhen to choose Madrid as soon as they show interest and hope Napoli will not play hardball.

      He can also chose Bayern Munich, but I don’t want to know which kind Ojoro CAF want to do this year, Osimhen’s performance last season is a top notch
