      Depends. If we win the CL and Argentina don't win the World Cup, it would likely go to Salah.
      If Egypt do well in the World Cup then it will be even more likely.
      Salah scored 44 goals this season, Messi scored 45.
      If Salah scores in the CL final, 1 goal equals Messi and 2 goals would beat him.
      There is of course World Cup goals to add onto that as well.
      Ronaldo is on 44 goals, we can't write him off either.

      But Ronaldo could be an injured cheerleader for Portugal again like the Euro's and despite not being on the pitch, being the reason Portugal win and a worthy winner of the Balon d'Or.
      It's got to be fixed, there is no way they deserved to win it every year for this long. For a start Iniesta should have in 2010, an incredible season and got the World Cup winning goal. Ribery should have won it one year too, arguably Suarez 2 years ago(?).

      Pretty much who goes the furthest in the World Cup out of Ronaldo and Messi will win it, unless Madrid win the CL, then it will be Ronaldo.

      Anyone else think it's a c**t move by Southgate to announce and change captains days before the CL final? Could have at least waited until after and then spoke to Hendo about it.

      He could have, but he shouldn't really be captain here either. He's not confident enough.

      Harry Kane said that we can win the world cup. He gives us a bad reputation. A good answer would be we'll win every game we can and just see how we progress.

      I really wish people would stop perpetuating this bollocks

      Numerous managers have made him skipper.. and they all know better than you.. they see him day in day out, if he wasn't a leader he wouldn't be either made or retained as the leader

      Klopp has had nearly 3 years to change him.

      He's backed by plenty of ex players who have nothing to gain by saying anything other than the truth..

      He was taken by Mo out of reverence for him to the awards beacsue he's a leader

      Honestly none of us have any clue about behind the scenes truth be told, for you to say he's not confident enough or he's not a leader is utter conjecture and bollocks..

      If he wasn't what you think he isn't then wouldn't be it.. Jürgen doesn't leave him in the job because he doesn't want to hurt his feelings.. He leaves him in the job because you know what? He's obviously a leader

      Keep saying this but he does the job Jürgen asks him to do and he does it well. Protect the CB's and give it to the players who score the goals.

      Probably because he chose to play for England instead of Nigeria.

      Nigeria don't have the stand out star players like they used to have.

      Hopefully as a team, they can pull together some decent performances, but not based on today! Truly awful in that 1st half. The communication was embarrassing, passing was poor, and they were physically afraid of the English. Think they only went forward twice.

      2nd half was much better with the change in formation and players. Have to say, I would expect the 2nd half team to be more like the team that will be selected for the tournament.

      Still lacking though, and a lot of work to be done in the next few weeks.

      Glad to see Sterling play as he is awful. Nigeria would have been more than 2 down if not for him.

      I carried on watching, but I was watching the ironing.

      I swear to god, Sterling couldn't score with a $10 whore, if he had a $100 bill, but he did go down like one.

      isn't there a deadline to name a captain? Not being funny but not everyone thinks Henderson is captain material, some people don't even think he's good enough to start. that goes for both Liverpool and England fans. If Southgate dropped his captaincy after losing the CL final, is that really any better? I'm not actually detecting a good time to drop him as captain, but personally I'd have made it one of the first things I did and it's about time Klopp manned up and dropped him as well. He was Rodgers first choice, Klopp would never have picked him himself.

      If we get Fekir, with Keita and Ox and now Fabino. We won't have both Fabino and Henderson on at the same time and Fabino didn't come here to bench warm. Van Dijk should be captain at Liverpool. At England it's got to be Kane even though I can't stand him.
