Isco is the talk of the footballing world at the moment as he appears to be finally putting his immense talent on show for all to marvel at.
The Real Madrid star scored twice as Spain thrashed Italy 3-0 on Saturday to close in on qualification for the World Cup.
Isco’s career at Real Madrid got off to a mixed start. After joining in 2013, it has taken some time for him to flourish but has now established himself under Zinedine Zidane in the last year.His measured free-kick on Saturday opened the scoring 13 minutes in for Spain before he doubled his side’s advantage with drilled effort just before half-time. He also produced a scintillating display with his overall performance in midfield, dancing past players and even leaving with Marco Verratti red-faced with a cheeky nutmeg.
MESUT OZIL | ARSENAL | GERMANYGiven Arsenal’s poor start to the season, Mesut Ozil may be a surprise inclusion but even when the German doesn’t appear to be making a solid enough impact, he’s still creating chance after chance. In fact, despite failing to register an assist, the playmaker has averaged four key passes a game in the Premier League so far this season, only Henrikh Mkhitaryan has managed more (4.3) but has five assists to show for it. Meanwhile, Ozil shone in Germany’s 6-0 rout of Norway on Monday night, scoring and assisting for the national team.
RIYAD MAHREZ | LEICESTER CITY | ALGERIADespite angling for a move away from Leicester City this summer, the Algerian remains at the Liberty Stadium. To his credit though, he hasn’t kicked up a fuss but has instead put his head down and been professional. Mahrez has started the new season in fine form, registering two assists for The Foxes so far.
EMIL FORSBERG | RB LEIPZIG | SWEDENTopping the assists charts in the Bundesliga with 19 last season, Emil Forsberg doesn’t look like he’s going to slow down. The Swede has one assist in two games this season and got on the score sheet for Sweden on Sunday.
