Football is difficult to play despite the excitement and the euphoria that follows.
Because of that, we have seen many players hailed for their fantastic performances.
Surprisingly, some are not appreciated for their efforts on the pitch, So I hereby present to you the top five underrated footballers in the world.
2. Raul Jimenez - Wolverhampton
Having battled to find his feet at both Atletico Madrid and Benfica, Raul was originally signed on-loan by Premier League sides Wolves in 2018 with the club trying to stabilize themselves in the top flight.
The Mexican talisman quickly adjusted to his new habitat, helping the team secure Europa League qualification for the first time and also reaching the FA Cup semi-finals.
Wolves didn't flinch to make his move lasting making him their most valuable signing in the history of the club.
The man has continued from where he stopped last season by netting 19 goals and also providing 9 assists in the 2019/20 season.
His efforts this season have saved Wolves in contention for a surprise Champions League qualification as they seize the 6th stance in the EPL, 5 points adrift to 4th placed Chelsea.
Jimenez is an all-round striker who mixed goalscoring with outstanding hold-up play, game espionage, and also links up his colleague attackers brilliantly.
1. Son Heung -Min -Tottenham
Son's inclusion on this list sound unexpected, but yes, the South Korean never gets all the credits he merits for his efforts. While the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Christian Erikson stole the headlines during the Pochettino era, Son is also equally relevant.
With many players having performance issues on the pitch, Son has continued putting in his impressive performances - a workaholic and tireless explorer who combines great techniques with momentum while also regularly molding in with his fair share of goal contributions. He is one of the most underrated football players in the world.
He is so nationalistic that he made use of the coronavirus implemented break to complete a 3 week of national military service in his native South-Korea.
