Dominant brand in world football, Nike has slightly lost its splendor in 2020. Despite everything endowed with a nice popularity rating with players, Nike has a typical team that is more than competitive for this year again.
To this day, Nike is still the number 1 brand in world football. Dominant equipment supplier for nearly ten years and strong of its partnership with players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappé or Kevin de Bruyne, the American brand has nevertheless experienced a special year 2020. Besides the simple fact that COVID-19 has been there, Nike has lost many players and could lose more in the coming weeks and months. Among the departures, we can officially talk about Neymar, Sergio Ramos and Thiago Alcantara but Robert Lewandowski, Phil Foden, Anthony Martial and Raphaël Varane could soon follow. Despite this and thanks to the advance taken by Nike Football in recent years, the eleven type of players under contract remains extraordinary.
More than 850 million Euros of value in the typical team!
It is difficult to know whether to trust this indicator or not, but the point is that Nike is the brand with the highest market value. Based on data from the Transfermarket site, more than 850 million Euros are accumulated by the players of our typical 2020 Nike Football team. Now reorganized around three silos with the discontinuation of the Phantom Venom and the Phantom Vision to give birth to the Phantom GT, the swoosh brand also manages to position all of its products fairly evenly.
In the goals, Hugo Lloris remains one of the sure values of Nike and it is always the Tiempo Legend 8 which accompanies the goalkeeper of the France team. A pair that is also found in central defense with Virgil van Dijk but also accompanied by the new Phantom GT at the feet of Marquinhos. Davies and his Mercurial on one side, Roberston and the low version of the GT on the other are on the wings. The three silos are thus represented in defense and they are also in the middle since we find a Tiempo with Henderson, a Mercurial Vapor with Bruno Fernandes and a Phantom GT with Kevin de Bruyne. Here again, the representation is therefore perfect.
In attack, it is obviously the scorer’s and speed’s shoes that are visible. The Mercurial Superfly 7 of Kylian Mbappé and Cristiano Ronaldo therefore frames the Phantom Venom of Robert Lewandowski. Indeed, even if the silo was stopped, it is indeed with this model that the player of Bayern Munich always evolves during the matches. As far as training is concerned, it is not uncommon to see him play in masked crampons… of the Puma brand!
If 2020 will therefore remain as a special year for Nike, we are impatiently awaiting what the American brand has in store for us for the year 2021. In addition to the arrivals and departures of players, the release of the new Mercurial Vapor 14 and Mercurial Superfly 8 will be one of the great moments of this new year.
