There’s been an intense decade-long debate on who the greatest football player in the world is.
While there have been quite a few fringe contenders, the two above all are quite clear. Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi.
Both have secured five Ballon d'or’s, the most prestigious individual prize in football, and have accrued a rabid fanbase that will go to their graves espousing the virtues of their favourite player.
Case for Messi: Almost inhuman ball control, and prodigious talent.
Case for Ronaldo: Insane physical stature, have transitioned into becoming a ruthlessly efficient goal-scorer.
And then I saw this:
The video highlighted both Cristiano Ronaldo’s propensity for the knuckle-ball free kick, his famous “si” celebration, and how one of the greatest footballers to ever grace the field has his moves.
But as the FIFA Men’s Player of the Year 2017 was grooving along to the Baby Shark beat, I began to wonder.
How good must the 9.9 sales be, if Cristiano Ronaldo agreed to be the face of this?
So I went online, and all I can say is:
Having a phone with no headphone jack meant I have successfully been coerced by society to adopt the wireless earphones as an actual day-to-day item, and Shopee, even on a non-discount day has quite the selection.
Just a personal opinion, but the Xiaomi Airdots are really, really good.
