MN: Leao’s World Cup showcase begins as Milan hope he impresses

By Oliver Fisher -

Rafael Leao is in line to make his first ever World Cup appearance today for Portugal and it is no doubt a showcase for him to assert himself on the biggest stage.

According to MilanNews, the Portuguese press believe Leao will accompany Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva in support of Cristiano Ronaldo, but it seems as though the Milan winger is in a battle with Joao Felix of Atletico Madrid for the final spot.

Regardless of whether he starts today or comes off the bench, doing well in the top international competition is the next step that Leao will have to take to enter the circle of the elite forwards in world football, and it would also be another fundamental flag in his journey.

It will also be a showcase for Milan too as will be able to make sure their talent is known to the whole world. While the situation regarding Leao’s future remains unclear, having the former Lille man play at a very high level could attract some big bids.
