goalies arms were fully extended in the air.. did you open your eyes?
That was definitely a foul if I’m remembering the proper replay
Yeah, mate, that looks really clean there.
Touching someone isn’t a foul unless you meaningfully impede their progress.
The keeper just didn’t go up well and tried to catch it instead of punch it away.
He is outstanding. Great soccer IQ too, if I had to pick a 9 for my team it would be him (or Mbappe)
Looks like weak goaltending to me. He didn't impede his progress, the goalie just played it poorly.
Oh, yeah for sure head to head he's hard pressed at winning the ball in the air but he's top notch IQ gets him a good amount of goals.
It's the goals he misses that's the real issue.
No one said anything about off the ball or his work rate. It's the bottling of chances that the issue. He's a fantastic player but het lacks the lethality of some of the guys mentioned. As a striker that separates you from the rest considering their job is to score goals. I'd still only take a handful of players over him and NO way would I take the likes of Kane over him.
You seem to miss something in your logic.
If a player scores more out of more chances, he may not be as lethal, but he's producing better.
As you said "their job is score goals". Cavani does it better than anyone, not because he's lethal but because he masters the art of being at the right place at the right time and ALWAYS offers his teammates a passing chance.
There are some players out there who are lethal but have low IQ and are never in a position to score. That's of course not Aguero or Kane's profile, but Cavani is much better at this than both.
No way you take Cavani over Kane. To each his own. I know I'd go with Cavani for a war on a pitch. He's the ultimate warrior. He'll do everything to win. He'll run for 90 minutes and if I have good passers, he's my choice. Because he'll get 5 golden chances and score 2. He might bottle the other 3, but other strikers wouldn't get more than 2 golden chances and score 1.
Re read the Kane part slowly.
Ah sorry it was early in the morning
