By Abdulkabir Olatunji Are you ready to beat your opponents…
In less than a week, the 3 top players of a generation showed us why we are lucky to see them play in the same period.
First, it was Zlatan Ibrahimović coming on to help his new team LA Galaxy defeat LAFC in the first ever ‘El Trafico’ derby scoring an outrageous equalizer and heading in the winner after his team had been 0-3 down, they won the match 4-3.
Then came Lionel Messi coming on late to help salvage a 2-2 draw at Sevilla with an assist an the equalizer thereby preserving Barcelona’s unbeaten run in the La Liga so far.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo was not going to be outdone, scoring twice as Real Madrid defeated Juventus 3-0 in Turin. Ronaldo’s second, an overhead kick is one of the greatest goals of all time.
Already there is a debate on whether Zlatan’s stunner is better.
Zlatan in his own unique style has told us what he thinks, speaking on ESPN Sportscenter, he said:
“It was a nice goal, but he should try it from 40 meters.”
We are not sure which of his goals he was cheekily referring to, the LA Galaxy one:
Or his Puskas Award winning overhead kick against England in 2012.
What do you think about all the goals?
