The 2018 FIFA World Cup fever is constantly spreading across the globe and Indian cricketers have also dyed themselves in the color of the biggest footballing festival in Russia.
Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh are among those who are the religious followers of football and certainly, they must have kept close eyes on the ongoing mega footballing event, as they have already seen supporting their favorites team on social media.
Recently veteran all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, who is also a football enthusiast, has revealed the football skills of the Indian cricketers and surprisingly Kohli is not topping the list of his choice.
The Men in Blue are often seen playing football during their practice sessions as a way to keep fit before matches and the 36-year old all-rounder feels Dhoni is a good footballer among them, saying “Mahi (Dhoni) is an excellent soccer player”.
He further said that Kohli “is really fit” but he can never score goals because of “lacks the finish” while Rohit, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah are really bad footballers.
According to Press Trust of India, Yuvraj said about Indian captain, “Virat is really fit and can run the length and breadth of the pitch with high speed, but unfortunately, he can never score goals. He has a lot of skills but sadly lacks the finish. I think he needs to work on that.”
Advising Bumrah and Pandya, the all-rounder said in a funny context, “Jasprit Bumrah shouldn't play football. Hardik Pandya is a really bad footballer. He too needs to improve his football skills.”
Yuvraj signed off by saying, “Rohit Sharma is a horrible soccer player. He just passes the ball and then doesn't move. He is always standing in an offside position. Zaheer Khan is also like Rohit, barely wants to run on the football ground. Ashish Nehra, I would advise shouldn't play football because every time he plays, he gets injured.”
