Premier League

5 footballers who appear to perform better for their countries than for their clubs

The international break is almost over, and despite its little duration, it has been extremely instructive.

Many players have been remarkably impressive and opposite to their club performances during the current international break. Is it possible that these players feel more at ease representing their country than their clubs?

Here are several footballers who clearly perform better for their countries than they do for their clubs:


1. Luka Jovic

Jovic is one of those athletes who has failed to live up to the lofty expectations that have been placed upon him. Jovic moved to Real Madrid for a dream career move a few years ago, but his performances were so poor that he was sent back to the Bundesliga last season.

Jovic appears to be on an entirely different level when representing Serbia internationally, as amusing as it may sound. Jovic has already made an impact for Serbia in a recent world cup qualification match. Madrid supporters will undoubtedly hope that he can replicate his current form in the Spanish capital.


2. Paul Pogba

Pogba rarely seems more alive than when he plays for the France national team, as everyone who has watched him can attest. Pogba has been a quality player for Manchester United throughout the years, but he has lacked consistency.

Pogba's consistency is unwavering for France. In the last Euros, he was one of their top French players, and he has also shined in recent world cup qualification matches.


3. Sterling Raheem

Since last season, Raheem Sterling has been a disappointment for Manchester City. The same cannot be said of his performances for the England national team.

With three crucial goals for England and one assist, Sterling was one of the greatest players at the Euros. His excellent English run continued with a goal in England's most recent match.


4. Harry Maguire

Many individuals have questioned Maguire's transfer fee to Manchester United. When Maguire represents England, the price tag begins to make sense. In the Premier League, Manchester United struggle to keep clean sheets, whereas Maguire has made it a routine with the England national side.

Maguire also scored in England's most recent encounter. No one can doubt Maguire as soon as he dons the England jersey after being a key player in England's Euros run to the final.


5. Lukaku Romelu

Despite the fact that Lukaku is now performing well for his club, no one can disagree that he looks great when representing Belgium. Lukaku has scored six goals in Belgium's previous six games, including four in the Euros. With 66 goals, he is presently Belgium's all-time leading scorer. He is currently one of the world's most 'lethal' strikers.
