The left-hand side of the pitch is his stage, where with Brazilian flair he conjures up his magic thanks to his excellent technical ability. When he turns it on, it’s never a one-man show. Alex Sandro laying on an assist for a forward is a scene we have witnessed many times: bursts of speed down the left wing and cross after cross into the opposing box.
#W8NDERFUL - Alex Sandro
A show of inventiveness, incision and quality. A match-winning assist in Juventus’ first match of the season, a 3-2 win at Chievo. A strong image to begin the story.
Stop and go. The work of a full-back is all about action and reaction, as well as turning the opposition winger into a defender.
Sure, this may not be theatre but it’s a perfect example of a winning plot. It’s the re-make of Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can, with Alex Sandro in Leonardo Di Caprio’s role.
