Another interesting foreigner is Colombian, Jackson Mendoza, a hard working midfielder who plays for Gzira United. I am always on the lookout for these players as they create very captivating images. Moreover Mendoza changes his hairstyle on a regular basis which sometimes can add that something extra to the capture.
Another is Nigerian striker, Evo Christ Ememe. Maybe few know that this young 20-year-old talent went down in football history as the first-ever goalscorer in this season’s newly launched UEFA Europa Conference League competition, when he put Mosta a goal up against Spartak Trnava of Slovakia in the First Qualifying Round, 1st leg of this competition this summer!”
“Then of course we have our own local talent in the form of Malta national team goalkeeper Henry Bonello, a big name in Maltese football who this summer joined Hamrun Spartans. Bonello’s intuition of saving penalties is one of his assets, so I make sure I am well focused on him during a penalty shot. Moreover, he is very powerful and commanding in aerial crosses.
Team mate Joseph Mbong, another Malta international who also plays for champions Hamrun, is a talented and skillful right sided attacking midfielder who can produce awesome captures on the right flank. Joseph is very much monitored by many clubs away from our shores. I look out for these two athletes often during a match as they always produce something amazing”
“Another super athlete is Gzira United captain and Malta international defender Steve Borg. The power, tenacity and body strength rounded up by his ball-winning ability has made Borg one of the notorious centre backs in the Malta Premier League for quite a good number of years. And to cap it all, the Gzira defender makes awesome “celebration” captures!”
