9 Most Overrated Players In World Football Right Now

9. Edinson Cavani

Cavani is one of those strikers who is constantly talked about as one of the finest strikers on the planet, but whenever you sit down and watch him play, he has an absolute stinker. His touch is often heavy, his finishing is erratic and his general influence on the game appears to be lacking. While Zlatan Ibrahimovic wows the watching public for Paris Saint-Germain, the 27-year-old does very little. In fairness, it's hard to argue with Cavani's goalscoring record- it has been very impressive at Napoli and PSG, in particular- but the Uruguay international quite often fails to do it in the big games, and is one of those players who bags himself some cheap goals when games are already put to bed. The former Napoli man is nowhere near the level of players like Luis Suarez, Sergio Aguero and Ibrahimovic, and it's about time people stop mentioning him in the same breath as them. He is good player, but a long way short of being a great one.
