Best player played with? Is a tough one because I've been lucky enough to play with a lot of high class players like Marcelo Roberto Tobe, Cidao, Carlos Munoz and Jose Carlos but I would say Jonathan Camara because he's a similar player to me in terms of body stature so I always tried to learn from him.

Why Futsal? I started playing Futsal through university. The opportunity for rapid improvement and growth along with the enjoyment provided by the game itself kept me increasingly involved.
Best game you have ever played in? It could many, for different reasons. The best team I have been up against would be Ukraine in the Euro Qualifiers, but Sweden at home in the Copperbox was pretty crowded and there was a great atmosphere there too. As far as club Futsal, for Loughborough I played in great games in Super League play-offs, with Baku, Baltic and also Genesis over two-legs were pretty intense. University both for my undergraduate in BUCs semis in Brunel was probably the most intense atmosphere I have ever experienced in Futsal, whilst the game this year with Nottingham Trent in varsity against Uni of Nottingham was incredibly packed and loud too. Many to choose from, but I would have to say Ukraine, as the level was just too high and impressive!

Best game you have ever played in? Every time I play for England is such an honour it could be any game. But narrowly losing to Hungary 5-4 in the main World Cup qualifying round in December 2015.

I've enjoyed quite a lot of them.
