He's not especially big for a striker (1.75 m and 69 kg). His main virtue is his ability to shoot with both feet. As a child, he had a medical problem with his right leg so he focussed on his left, eventually becoming two-footed. In addition he's an excellent header of the ball – an authentic goal machine.
Apart from his shooting ability, 'El Guaje' (The Lad) as he is affectionately known, is amazingly fast and mobile – a player who looks for the pass into space. Unpredictable. Off the ball, he works hard for the team and applies constant pressure to the opposing defence. He's a charismatic player, a winner, who can turn a game at any moment.
