I watched him in the cup game against Chaves, he played as an AM in a 4-2-3-1 that often looked more like a 4-4-2 on the pitch with Marega ( LM ) joining Tiquinho upfront and Nakajima and Corona playing deeper in midfieldgiving them a real surplus in build up. Nakajima roamed across his area of coverage outside the box, making himself available for passes and mainly manifested on the right wing when moving on to the final third where his cross for Tiquino's second goal came from . His movement for support was intuitive and vigilant, popping up constantly and following the play around. As the game went on he dropped deep often , even below the half line to provide the same service there. I was very impressed with his Stamina and Teamwork in this game. On the ball he was all business, going for lay offs and the occasional cross, not making mistakes. Not a very aggressive display form him, he had a clear mind to progress the game in a simple manner but not attempt something creative himself. He was the high TW AM in this game on paper but he was not the focal point of the team's distribution or build up by any means and was not fed the ball that frequently. He didn't dribble in this game. I also remembered why i felt strongly about not rating him too high on DS as he was pretty allergic of running or playing on the ball in general here.
I had a hard time finding Porto games of him to watch, this cup game finally became available today on Footbalia. I have to watch him play as a winger in a game to catch up with him properly. As far as ratings go i raised his TS and Agi by a point. Acc could get the same treatment, he is very quick and nimble. I can see DA a little higher but i need to get a better sense of his dribbling. I am apprehensive about raising his DS and i like the current number cause it shows he is clearly skilled and can be fluid on the ball even though he doesn't seem to be high on dribbling when i've seen him. I'll keep an eye on it in future games
. I am reconsidering his TW and Agg, about putting the emphasis on the first. I also have some doubts about his Response being green .
