Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior: Futsal and street football helped me

Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior says futsal has been a basis for his one-on-one skills.

The Brazilian dubs himself a street footballer.

Vinicius Junior said, "Playing on the streets helped me lose my fear of dribbling because you don't have any responsibility. You can take lots of chances because there's nothing to lose.

"Futsal also helped me. Everyone says that Brazilian players have a lot of quality and I think it's because we play in small spaces, we started playing in the street when we were young and always with older people. All that helps us.

"When I'm in one-on-one situations I never think about it, I always improvise. I'm very calm and I always try the best moves, because when I dribble past my marker it'll take me closer to the box to help the team.

"I think my style adapts to the style of every team, just like the Brazilian style adapts to the style of every club and every team in the world. I'll never change the way I play and I'll always try to keep doing what I did when I started playing. I'll always look to improve to get to a higher level."
