Uruguayan League10

In this category, Haaland again takes the cherry as even at this point he has 1 title more than Nunez in his bag. We must also consider that Haaland is now playing for Man City, a team which is making the Premier League look easy. Pep can bring a lot of titles to the cabinet of Erling Haaland in future.

3: International Career

The Norwegian striker is comparatively young yet very beneficial to his country. Haaland was the footballer of the year for Norway for 2 years in a row and it looks like he is going to win plenty more. Norway does not have a very strong team and it would be a big task for Haaland to win an international title with Norway.

Nunez is from Uruguay, a country known for giving the football world exceptional strikers in the past. The latest addition would be Darwin Nunez who can make it to this list. Compared to Norway there are quite some players in the position Nunez plays. The player has just scored 2 goals in 11 matches for Uruguay.

The upcoming World Cup will be a huge chance for both these players to prove their dominance in the football world.

Darwin Nunez is a tall and athletic man who loves Jet Sky and water adventures. He is also busy settling himself properly in the Premier League. Nunez is in a relationship with Lorena Manas and also has a child who also has the same name ‘Darwin’. It was not easy for Nunez to make it to the top and he worked very hard to be here.
