There aren’t too many African players who can compare with Weah as far as natural gifts are concerned.

He boasted elite technique, remarkable physical attributes, and, mentally, the creativity and innovation to prise open Europe’s best defences.

Just look at his wondergoal against Hellas Verona as a summary of his qualities.

Weah, who’s currently the president of Liberia, was also a leader, and recognised the value of self-sacrifice for the good of the team.

Aboutrika also possessed many of these attributes; witness his two-assist showing against Brazil at the 2009 Confederations Cup for evidence of what he could do against the best sides, while he also proved himself a big-game player in classic tangles with the likes of Yaya Toure and Alex Song, Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba.

So regularly a match-winner, he had superb technique, a fantastic mentality, like Weah, and eclipsed his rival in terms of passing, dictating the tempo, or set piece delivery.

Weah: 25 Aboutrika: 22
