Football eyes were on the top clash between Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain for the first phase of the Round of 16 games.

Manchester City’s game was always going to an easy one on paper considering their form. Juventus versus Tottenham Hotspur had the potential to be a good game and it definitely was. And then there was FC Porto against Liverpool which seemed a perfect match.

Cristiano Ronaldo just took every player in Europe to school creating Champions League 101 for the boys who need goal scoring lessons.

The conversation after the Real Madrid game was about Neymar, who on a stage where he needed to prove his potential of a future world best failed miserably. Maybe not so miserably, but totally a failure.

Off that topic of Ronaldo versus Neymar, it is worth highlighting the best performers in the first phase of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 were in Portugal.

Liverpool paid a visit to FC Porto and made them look like a squad assembled from office personnel, not professional footballers.

Among the leaders of Liverpool’s superb display in Porto were the two best players on the African continent right now, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Mane scored a hat-trick for Liverpool in their 5-0 thumping of FC Porto in the Champions League with the African Player of the Year Mohamed Salah scoring one.

But you need to see Salah’s goal to know why Liverpool fans cannot have enough of Egyptian magician.

Cristiano Ronaldo keeps on breaking records, Neymar has some work to do, Pep Guardiola’s City are having the football time of their lives but it is totally fair to say after the first phase of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, Africa’s top two players were the best among the best.
