Lisandro Lopez is Pure Goal

Lisandro Lopez showed off for his new team of Lyon & Maradona yesterday with a hat trick against Anderlecht. Before his call up to the Argentine national team, he was probably one of the most underrated top strikers in Europe while he played for the Portuguese champions of Porto. Now he has Europe's & Maradona's full attention and he is not wasting any time. He has proven to have immediate impact early in the game producing important goals. I think his chances of starting against Brazil is rapidly increasing. Lets hope Maradona doesn't ignore this talent and lets him show off some more.

Gonzalo Higuain: keeps proving his worth

In Real Madrid's 3-0 win against DC United (MLS league USA)- It was the 21 yr old, Gonzalo Higuain that scored with flair not Cristiano Ronaldo or Kaka. Hopefully, Maradona is paying attention to this very talented striker who deserves a chance to play for the Argentine national team.

Transfer Price paid by Real Madrid
£80m for Cristiano Ronaldo
£56m for Kaka
£13m for Higuain
