Rivalries on the footballing pitch make the sport more exciting but the feeling of brotherhood and unconditional friendship between players make the game more lovable. Here, in a list, we present to you five of the Best-friends Fighting For The 2018 World Cup.

5. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane

On his relationship with teammate, at the club level, Sadio Mane, the Salah stated, “Since the first day I joined Liverpool, my relationship with Sadio was very good. We are close friends and we help each other to reach the best for us and the team.”

Mo Salah’s adventure in Russia must be over when Mane’s is just starting. But no wonder, they were happy to see each other in Russia.

4. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez


We’ll let Suarez define the bond himself: “Argentines and Uruguayans get on well, and on top of that with Leo we have the same age and this generates a different feeling. Football players don’t like to talk all the time about football. We have a completely different thing, with the children, things we have. This creates a link that makes the relationship more powerful.

“Leo is like anyone else off the pitch. He has great humility and sincerity with me. He is admirable, incredible. We also live 100 meters from each other.”

3. Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo

There is rarely a celebratory routine for Cristiano Ronaldo without his pal, Marcelo, and the two are always seen cooking up pranks between themselves. They always share jokes during training sessions and their celebrations on the pitch mean something big from the bottom of their hearts.
