“Who put Ronaldo in”… Dissatisfaction with the list missing two top scorers
There are no two top scorers in the English Premier League (EPL), but there is Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr), who plays in Saudi Arabia. The selection of the 2022 World Best 11 candidates is questionable.
The International Football Players Association (FIFPRO) announced the 26 candidates for the World Best 11 on the 14th (Korean time). 메이저놀이터
Last year’s performance was evaluated, but the EPL top scorer was not seen. Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) and Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), who dominated the EPL in the 2021/2022 season, were not nominated.
FIFPRO chose Ronaldo over top scorer. Obviously, he scored fewer league goals than Son Heung-min and Salah last season, and this season he was extremely sluggish, leaving Manchester United and going to Saudi Arabia. Ronaldo has been sluggish for more than half of the year, but the reaction is not good to be included in the candidate. Foreign media even asked whether Ronaldo was qualified to be a candidate.
In addition to Son Heung-min and Salah, they are criticizing that this candidate is poorly designed, paying attention to missing players such as Sadio Mane (Bayern Munich), Victor Osimen (Napoli), and Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid).
The controversial candidates for the world’s best 11 strikers are Ronaldo, Neymar, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain), Robert Lewandowski (FC Barcelona), Erling Hollan (Manchester City) and Karim Benzema (Real Madrid).
