What makes you different?
What makes me unique is my leadership, understanding of the game, mentality, and passing skills. As a center back, I always try to direct my players around the field and help my teammates as much as possible. I always try to inspire and keep the motivation high throughout the game, even if we are behind. I always communicate so that the team is well-organized and does not stand in the wrong position during set pieces, etc.
One of my main strengths is my understanding of the game. I have a good understanding of the game, which helps me in many situations, such as knowing where and how to position my body. Another strength I have is my passing ability. I can pass both short and long balls to break through the opposing team's defense. I can also play diagonal passes to switch the play to the other side and I can also carry the ball forward and disrupt the patterns in the opposing team´s defense.
Why do you want to compete in college?
I am going to the USA and college because I want to develop as much as possible as a football player and as a person. I love training, winning matches, and trophies, and I hope to do so during my college years. I want to experience a new football culture and face new challenges within the sport. I feel that college has a very high level where I believe I can develop as a football player.
My college goals are to develop as a person and a football player, as well as to perform at the highest possible level both in academics and on the football field. I want to achieve a good balance between school and football. Having a good education is important to me, but I also want to be able to perform and develop as a football player at the same time, and I see college as a great opportunity to do so.
