Golden Eaglets forward Samuel Chukwueze, who was awarded man of the match in Nigeria's 5-1 thrashing of hosts Chile in a FIFA U17 World Cup game, has disclosed that he draws inspiration from Dutch winger Arjen Robben.
The Diamond Academy player said he is trying to lose his game to that of the former Chelsea player and look forward to more great performance for Nigeria at the FIFA U17 World Cup.
“I know I did well today, but I still have a lot of work to do to improve,” said Chukwueze, a product of the Diamond Football Academy.
“I try to base my game on that of Arjen Robben, who can run with the ball at speed, score goals and set them up too. I want to be an all-round player like him.
“It wasn’t the perfect game by any means. I think we can play better if we work on our concentration.”
He scored a brace against Chile and forced them to commit three penalties.
