Nike Football Cartoon – The Last Game

What I find most interesting is who they chose to represent the best of football and who they left out:

  • David Luiz – Brazil
  • Neymar Jr. – Brazil
  • Andres Iniesta – Spain
  • Tim Howard – USA
  • Cristiano Ronaldo – Portugal
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic – PSG (he, he)
  • Franck Ribery – France
  • Wayne Rooney – England

I guess it really just comes down to sponsorships. With Messi sponsored by adidas, they must of ran out of other big names to use. I can’t see any other reason to have two players from Brazil, yet Italy, and all of Africa and other South American countries not represented.

Ibrahimovic isn’t even in the World Cup and is wearing his club jersey!
