Former Ivory Coast elephant captain Didier Drogba recently answered questions from the sports media Actu Foot. He was invited to give his opinion on the level of the teams since the start of the 2018 Russia World Cup. For the former Ivorian international, the level is relatively high.
The big surprise is that the big football nations are struggling to win. This is the case of Argentina and Germany. This shows that there is no longer a small team or large team in this competition. All teams are equal.
Didier Drogba was also invited to give his opinion on the footballer he thinks is currently the best player in the world. For the Chelsea striker, Cristiano Ronaldo is the best footballer on the planet.
” I think he’s the best striker in the world right now. It is complete: it can mark the head, the left foot, the right foot, on free kick … It is always moving. Explained the former Chelsea striker.

Didier Drogba may not be wrong when he believes that Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the best striker in the world. The five-time Golden Ball has become the oldest player to score at least three goals in the same match of a World Cup. He currently totals four goals in two games.
His 85th performance in the Portuguese jersey allowed him to beat Hungary’s Ferenc Puskas (84 goals). At the world level, the Portuguese star is behind the Iranian Ali Daei who reaches 109 goals. A number that will be difficult to achieve at this World Cup but that the scorer can aim before the end of his career.
