The instinct to score goals? It has always been in me.

‘When I was younger, we played against village teams and we were winning 18-0 and stuff like this. I scored lots of goals and it was awesome. For me, there is no better feeling on the pitch than scoring a goal.’I started in attack at the professional level but because of competition, I gradually moved backwards. First I was a midfielder but finally I ended up at right back.’The 26 years old has scored seven goals already this season for club and country.
