Carlos Soler - Valencia v Barcelona (Spanish La Liga) - adidas Predator 20+ Mutator
Okay, for all you Football Manager players out there you will have an idea of how good this guy is. Carlos Soler currently plays as a central or right sided midfielder for Valencia. He was part of the starting line up which defeated the mighty Barca 2-0 on Saturday. Doing so he dictated play and showed box-to-box control in the hot adidas Predator 20+ Mutator boots.
Isco - Valladolid v Real Madrid (Spanish La Liga) - adidas Nemeziz 19.1 Mutator
Now, have you seen complete agility and ability in one player? Isco can easily go down as one of the world's best No.10's in football. He's elegant, smooth and glides across the pitch. The perfect boots to match this is the smaller collar framed adidas Nemeziz 19.1, by lacing them up he'll feel a tighter fit and traction throughout the pitch for sharp movements.
Paulo Dybala - Napoli v Juventus (Italian Serie A) - adidas Copa 20+ Mutator
The little magician for Juventus is quite simply one of Europe's most sought after players. His silky feet, speed, skill and game-changing moments are tied with the adidas Copa 20+ from the latest adidas Mutator Pack. The laceless Copa has the same vision of a classic Copa but adds the modern technology for touch and feel. Dybala taking to the pitch in this fire shirt and boot combo against Napoli on Saturday.
Erling Braut Haaland - Borussia Dortmund v FC Koln (German Bundesliga) - Nike Mercurial Vapor Future Lab
The wonderkid from Norway is created waves around Europe with his goalscoring ability. Scoring 5 goals in just 56 minutes over two games for Dortmund is outstanding, his speed, last line attacking and composure in front of goal for a nineteen year old is phenomenal. All this in the fire Future Lab pack from Nike, wearing his Mercurial Vapor is a shout out to his supreme confidence.
Gerard Pique - Valencia v Barcelona (Spanish La Liga) - Nike Tiempo Legend Future Lab
Now, Barcelona may have lost this game but Pique is a legend in Spain for the victories and trophies he's lifted throughout his career. He makes no mistake of keeping tradition and holding the fort for classic boots for a centre-back defender. Wearing a fresh pair of Nike Tiempo Legend's from the Nike Future Lab pack. Nice!
Harry Maguire - Tranmere v Manchester United (English FA Cup) - Puma ONE 20.1
The big man at the back for United scored an absolute screamer at the weekend in the FA Cup away at Tranmere. In pre-season the United captain changed alliances and moved to become a Puma athlete. The tougher upper of the One ensures he get stuck in but play with composure at the same time. The Puma One 20.1 Spark Pack recently dropped at Pro:Direct so cop your pair now. Not to be missed, it has everything.
