Unjustified boasting?

The Times gets carried away:
No league in the world can say they have got the strikers of the quality that we have in the Premier League, where there is Harry Kane, Sergio Agüero and Álvaro Morata. La Liga may have Luis Suàrez and Cristiano Ronaldo, but I would argue we have four of the top ten centre forwards in the world — Alexis Sànchez too, if he played more. We are really blessed. In the past, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Thierry Henry were sensational, but if you can pick a top goalscorer this season out of those four, you are a pretty good judge. They are all different types of centre forward, and a case could be made for every one of them. They are predators. We are very fortunate in the Premier League.
Really?  Spain has Ronaldo,  Benzema, Bale, Messi, Suarez, Griezmann, while France has Neymar, Cavani, Mbappe, Falcao, and Germany has Lewandoski, Rodriguez, Muller, Aubameyang.

Just as good as England ...
