    Impressive stuff! To be named in Europe’s best 11 team of the week along with these top-notch players is really a great feat, this shows that Warris is doing something right cuz its not easy at all to be named in such a team along with these great players. However the chap (Warris) gotta improve on certain aspects of his game, I watched their match against PSG last weekend and he struggled a lil bit. Nevertheless he still remains a fantastic player by all standard, I hope he keeps on banging in the goals till the end of the season. 4 goals in 7 matches is a decent record, its good for GH ahead of the WC.
