Personal Best

Short/long-range passing, tackling, long-range shooting, vision, and leadership.

What makes you different?

I am ambitious, disciplined and hardworking academically and athletically. I am not afraid to take risks on the pitch, and I try to learn from my mistakes to avoid repeating them and therefore improve my game.

I have gained experience playing soccer in different countries during tournaments/training camps which helps me understand the different cultures and different ways of playing and has taught me to adapt.

I am also used to playing in older age groups which has helped me develop physically and means I can compete at all levels.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I take my studies just as seriously as soccer which is why I want to be a student-athlete in the USA where I can compete at a very high and challenging level while achieving a degree which will help me for the future.

College Goals?

Earn a degree, challenge myself on the pitch in a new country, play at a high level against/alongside players from around the world, expose myself to professional clubs in the USA.
