Football is a sport that brings the world closer. It is a sport that has the power to bring nations together. It is a sport that compels warring factions to call for a ceasefire so that they can enjoy a good match. That is the magnitude of power that the magical sport of football possesses. This year, truth be told, has not been a fairytale so far but it did bring us the EURO 2021 and with that, a ton of football.
We thought it would be fun to check out the watches that our favorite footballers use and to be honest, we were a little surprised with the results. Have a look!
