ZURICH – The International Football Association (FIFA) has highlighted five strikers who will make their World Cup debut, calling these players high-profile players who will add to football’s greatest event.
In a statement on its website, FIFA said that Jonathan David, Lautaro Martinez, Christopher Nkunku, Darwin Nunez and Dusan Vlahovic will make their World Cup debuts at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
JonathanDavid played a pivotal role as Lille recorded one of the most impressive league titles in modern history in 2020/21 and followed up with another good season for Les Dogues.
He was also instrumental in Canada conquering Concacaf’s Octagonal and reaching their first World Cup in 36 years. Toby Alderweireld, Duje Caleta-Car and Nayef Aguerd and the other defenders in the pool will have to brace themselves for a quick, skilled player who is slippery for the bodyguard.
Lautaro Martinez included Jorge Sampaoli in the preliminary squad for Russia 2018 but he didn’t make the final selection as Sergio Aguero, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain were signed as Lionel Messi’s companions. Argentina could have used Martinez as they drew 1-1 with Iceland and lost 3-0 to Croatia.
Now firmly established as Messi’s strike partner, nine goals in 13 games have helped Martinez La Albiceleste win the Copa America for the first time in 28 years, qualify for Qatar 2022 and defeat Italy 3-0 in the Finalissima.
Christopher Nunku won the Bundesliga Player of the Season award ahead of the likes of Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski with 35 goals. Nkunku might have had to wait until earlier this year for his first international call-up, but he’s appeared in every France game since.
The former Paris Saint-Germain initially played in midfield or on the flank, but now he acts in attack for Leipzig. Christo recorded 33 combined goals and assists in 34 appearances in the Bundesliga last season.
Uruguay has repeatedly beaten her above her weight in terms of the title. In this century they have mirrored that success in producing top marksmen, with Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani scoring a combined 162 international goals.
Darwin Nunez — the newest sniper to come off the conveyor belt is Nunez, whose speed, movement and finish make him a fearsome prospect. Diego Alonso may have afforded El Pichon’s limited minutes in Sky Blue so far, but the Liverpool native looks destined to lead the Uruguay line in Qatar.
Dusan Wlahovic — Most youngsters distance themselves from the pressure of being confronted with a legend. Vlahovic, on the other hand, welcomes being called “the Serbian Ibrahimovic”.
Former team-mate Valeri Bojinov recalled: “He was this 16-year-old boy and he told me I’m Zlatan from Belgrade. I’ll play for the biggest clubs and be one of the best in the world.” Strikers.” Vlahovic, full of self-confidence, has already achieved both of these goals.
The Juventus striker has scored 45 goals in 73 games in the last three seasons in Serie A and will spearhead the all-time best generation of Serbian players seeking success in the Arabian Peninsula.
