The new Nike Soccer commercial for the Footballverse asks: Who’s the better footballer, Mbappe or Ronaldinho? Or what if you could bring back the Brazilian Ronaldo from 1998 to face off against Mbappe? Or the Ronaldo from 2002 with that bizarre haircut and all. Or how about Cristiano Ronaldo when he was in his prime….
It does seem like Mbappe and the Brazilian Ronaldo are similar players. However, hard to say who’s better overall. Pretty even! Both players possessing exceptional speed and the ability to leave defenders in the dust.
For Ronaldinho, the new generation of footballers have studied his game. Often through watching YouTube, learning Ronaldinho’s tricks and tactics. Virgil van Dijk stops Ronaldinho from flicking the ball over his head. Mbappe blocks Ronaldinho’s free kick by laying down behind the wall.
Kevin De Bruyne makes an appearance in the Footballverse Nike ad too, facing off against Edgar Davids.
The world’s best soccer player is missing in this Nike ad though. And that’s Messi of course. Who wears Adidas soccer shoes!
As far as the Footballverse goes though, it sure would be fun to see players from a different generations play again. I’d like to see Eric Cantona play again for one. And there are those players who maybe suffered an injury that you’d like to bring to the Footballverse when they were fully fit.
As far as women’s soccer players go. Alex Morgan, Sam Kerr, Leah Williamson and Carli Lloyd show their soccer skills in the ad. However, I’m surprised that Spanish playmaker Alexia Putellas isn’t in the ad.
An international team of scientists at a secret lab in Switzerland finally cracked the code. They’ve written the formula that will put an end to any discussion—the ultimate battle of all football generations…
With the push of a button, they bring us legendary players from the past and present. A crazy experiment unfolds. Watch now to find out if the world of science can find a way to settle the score.
