Why should I recruit you ?
The first thing you need to know is that I’m really composure with the ball. If an opponent tries to press me I just pass the ball to a free teammate. If nobody presses me I use my pass qualities to break lines. I’m 6,4 so I have a huge aerial strength. It’s also hard to pass me; I’m a great defender. I like to force my opponents to use their weak foot then I press them to take the ball. I’m also really great when it comes to read the game. Apart from that I’m an awesome teammate. I am the one who will push them to their very best level if I see that one of my teammate feel bad I won’t hesitate to help him. I may don’t have the greatest accent but with my english skills I can easily have a conversation with anybody .
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges ?
First of all I’m a huge fan of this country since I’m a kid so the fact that my dream is to become a soccer professional player and the fact that I realized the importance of studies make no doubt that I need to compete at an U.S college because they isn’t another country who can conciliate as well as the USA sport and studies.
What do you want to achieve in Soccer ?
I want to be the greatest soccer player I can be. I believe that I have the potential to make something great in this sport and I will put the work on it to make this happen.
College and life goals ?
I want to be the best student I can be I wont neglect the studies because even if I become a soccer player I hope that I will not be just a football player my hole life because my life goal is to become greatest man I can be I prefer help a country rather than have a boat .
