When the play is slow and lacking a spark, he can bring it to life with one of his trademark bursts that leave his opponent in his wake. And when the action is already frenetic, he’s capable of speeding it up another notch. João Cancelo is a dizzying mix of class and supersonic speed on the wing: an all-round artist, with a taste for improvisation.
#W8NDERFUL - João Cancelo
A very rare shot of Cancelo taking a breather; he’s a challenge for photographers, not just opposing players.
One against two. Cancelo enjoys running with the ball at his feet, like a fully-fledged, fearless attacker.
Cancelo’s best moment of the year was in the Lazio v Juventus match. He comes on with Juventus trailing, scores with his first effort, wins the penalty that makes it 2-1, and goes close to another two goals. A rampant display.
