"It is clear that you are good. Also seems your skill set is suited for a CM role. I honestly see no reason why you dreams won't come through. God speed. BTW... If you are going to be a CM, you will need to work on your pace and passing. You literally have to make the game flow."

@BodesPen_ said:

"You are good. Lol. The power is there. I like the way you keep the ball in between your legs, keep doing that it won't allow the opponents to take it away from you easily. They will foul you and you have a free kick. Nice one babe."
