Amajita’s Luther Singh says he is enjoying his football in Portugal as the style of play there suits him.
Singh is plying his trade in the Portuguese second tier with Braga’s B team. The 19-year-old is currently in camp with Thabo Senong’s Amajita squad as they prepare for the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup.
Speaking to FIFA, Singh has discussed life in Portugal and his rise to stardom, among other things.
“Portugal is the place to be. The style of play suits me very well. I’ve always grown up in the academy with the type of football that they play – keeping the ball on the ground, triangulation, changing the point of attack, limiting touches – and you can see it’s the kind of thing players do here without being told,” Singh told fifa.com.
Amajita feature in Group D of the World Cup with Japan, Uruguay and Italy. Singh was one of the standout performers for Amajita during the CAF U20 Africa Cup of Nations in Zambia earlier this year.
The rising star told FIFA about his strengths and Amajita’s chances against some of the biggest names in world football.
“Taking on players, beating people one-on-one and I have an eye for goal. I’m also very skilful, fast and intelligent.
“We’re going to have a good squad, boasting the best we have in South Africa. We’ll be fighting for the country. It’s not impossible. This is football. You make the best of the things you can control; the other things will fall into place. If it’s meant to be, it’ll happen,” the young star has been quoted as saying.
