Mbappé vs. Classic Ronaldinho: Nike Football's New Commercial Asks an Important Question

Kylian Mbappé goes toe-to-toe with Prime Ronaldinho in an epic showdown.

As always, Nike Football has prepared a special commercial for the World Cup. This time, Kylian Mbappé goes toe-to-toe with Prime Ronaldinho in a battle where only one will come out on top.

Nike Football launched a trailer where some scientists debate about who is better: the current Kylian Mbappe or Ronaldinho from 2006. What is the solution to this question? Create a multiverse with both players to pit them against each other and learn the truth.

Honestly, this concept is spectacular, because in any sport, we always ask ourselves these kinds of questions when comparing two stars from different eras: Maradona vs. Messi, LeBron James vs. Jordan, and the list goes on.

The commercial, which will also feature Cristiano Ronaldo and possibly other soccer superstars, will be released next Wednesday, November 16.

The Answer

Yes, Kylian Mbappé is a monster, with great pace, explosiveness, dribbling, and killer instinct. It's no secret that the young Frenchman is one of the best players in the world today.

But to speak of Ronaldinho in 2006 is to make reference to a player who expressed the 'Jogo Bonito' in its maximum expression, not only leading FC Barcelona to win the Champions League but also doing it with an eye-catching and entertaining game.

The Ronaldinho of 2006 gave the impression that he was on another level with respect to the rest of the players. 'Dinho' was able to beat the best defenders in a 1-on-1 while smiling and then throw a precise no-look pass.

There’s no even debate, Ronaldinho 2006 is clear.
