Why Lewandowski predicts Mbappe and Haaland will never Reach Messi, Ronaldo levelsPublished: February 14, 2022
One big debate in football is what the game will be like when the magnificent duo of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo hang up their boots in retirement.
The two global superstars have won a combined 12 Ballon d’Or prizes (seven for Messi, five for Ronaldo) albeit about two of Messi's awards were quite controversial.
Only Real Madrid's Luka Modric broke the seven-year duopoly between Messi and Ronaldo.
It was a sad story for many football faithful and particularly in the La Liga when Ronaldo first (to Juventus) and later Messi (to Paris Saint-Germain) left Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Bayern Munich iconic striker Robert Lewandowski deservedly won the FIFA The Best award in 2021 and was widely tipped to win it and the Ballon d’Or in the year 2020 but the awards were bizarrely not held 'due to the effects of coronavirus' pandemic.
Footballers can improve their concentration levels before facing Ronaldo and Messi if they play poker with GGpoker.
If Ronaldo's Portugal fail to navigate their way past Italy in the World Cup playoffs next month, that stands Messi in good stead for a record 8th Ballon d’Or gong although that is debatable based on what Messi achieves in the calendar year with Argentina and PSG.
What do you think are the chances of players like Neymar, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Edouard Mendy and Robert Lewandowski?
Talking about Lewandowski, the Bayern Munich striker does not expect emerging potential world best players, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland to dominate football like Messi and Ronaldo have done.
The Bayern Munich hero said in a recent interview: "They have the ability, but who knows if in the next two or three years, other young strikers will not reveal themselves in turn.
"I can't imagine for a moment that they will dominate international soccer as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have done for the last 12 years.
"Those two have made so much history by winning all the trophies possible. In the next 10 years, I think there will be several players competing to be the best player in the world."
France Football wrote the following about the two emerging icons who have taken the world of football by storm.
"PSG attacker Mbappe has been in fine form for the French giants this season.
"He (Mbappe) has scored 21 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions this term to help fire them to a 16-point lead at the top of Ligue 1 and into the last-16 of the Champions League.
"The France international's contract at PSG will expire at the end of the season and he is being linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer.
On the left footed Haaland, who by the way loves his horses the French publication has this to say:
"Haaland, meanwhile, has been unstoppable in Germany. He has found the net 23 times in just 20 matches for the Bundesliga side.
"The Norway forward has been a consistent goal scorer since his arrival at Dortmund, having scored 80 times in just 79 matches overall.
"He (Haaland), too, is wanted by several top teams in Europe, with Madrid and Barcelona said to be in the race to buy him in the next transfer window.
Both stars, Mbappe and Haaland are expected to be in European action this midweek for their teams.
