Profile
The midfielder's technical skills and movement make up for a relative lack of pace and he's at his best with the ball at his feet on the left where he has the repertoire to cut inside or overlap on the outside. The 25-year-old's finest attribute is his left foot, with which he produces plenty of tricks and inch-perfect crosses. His prowess over the dead ball is also unrivalled and his long-distance strikes will remain etched in the memories of fans for many a generation. But 'Shabba' wants to achieve more, saying: "I have set myself higher standards and I hope I will continue to do well. My wish is to make the nation proud."
