The Dutch winger played his best match of the season today. Justin Kluivert’s performance made a difference at Luzhniki stadium.
In the press conference ahead of CSKA Moscow-Roma, Eusebio Di Francesco had announced the presence of the Dutch winger on the left-offensive flank. Kulivert had had time to absorb the news and prepare for the game. He did it as an experienced player aware of his qualities.
He burned his side of competence by offering support in the offensive phase and not forgetting to help his teammates defensively. His assist for Florenzi has been simply brilliant. The Italian right-winger wasted that opportunity stumbling on the ball, though.
Justin Kluivert has demonstrated his ability to attack the opponents. He is a player with a great future thanks to his audacity and awareness. Today, the Roma winger has won his personal duel against Kirill Nababkin. The Dutch player is working hard to play a lot more with his teammates. Reportedly, Di Francesco and his staff are pushing the talented winger to avoid booming actions looking for the applause of the audience.
He is today’s man of the match in the pivotal Champions League clash CSKA Moscow-Roma. He leaves the Russian territory with a well deserved 7.9 rating.
