Fans were a little disappointed to see that they were unable to see Nkunku perform at the World Cup because of that injury he picked up – but he really is a special kind of player.
There is a reason why all the big clubs have been watching him – there is a reason why he will cost so much and that is because he is a player that is good enough for the big time.
