You may be looking at the singing of the season in the Bundesliga. Randal Kolo Muani was signed on a FREE transfer from Nantes to Europa League champion Eintracht Frankfurt. He has gone on to supply 12 goals and 10 assists in 25 games in the Bundesliga. How has he done it? Kolo Muani has fantastic close control and uses his excellent accelaration to blow past defenders. This allows him to lay the ball off to another Frankfurt attacker or to put one in the back of the net himself. He is also one of the most talented knock down headers of the ball. The 6ft 2in striker rises above other defenders and puts the ball on a platter inside the box. Kolo Muani has caught the eye of Didier Deschamps and the French National Team. He scored the game clinching goal v. Morocco in the World Cup Semi-Final game. He, along with Marcus Thurman, entered into the World Cup Final in the 41st minute as France needed a different look and a spark. Mbappe went full Mbappe, but this was a sign of a changing of the guard for the French Number 9 position. With Benzema retired and Giroud 36 years old, France will need a youthful striker to lead the line. Enter the 24 year old who is just getting into his prime years and has the capability to make this role his with Euro 2024 right around the corner. Find Kolo Muani rookie cards in 22-23 Topps Deco!!
