There was little doubt that Ronaldo Vieira would take his chance if it came in Toulon this summer for England, and despite not being involved in any of the build up he starts his second game tonight against Cuba.

Vieira bossed the midfield on Monday night against Angola, bullying his way through a game that was tricky despite the apparently poorer level of opposition. Angola were quick and fit but Vieira didn’t struggle with the physical side of things and controlled the game, fighting off three players in the build up to England’s opening goal. Vieira will make his second start for the Three Lions tonight and probably won’t be phased by the game.

Vieira has had a whirlwind year in football, breaking into the Leeds first team at the start of the season after signing his first professional deal. He became a crucial part of the team and signed a new deal during the season. After ending it as one of the strongest player in the squad he was then given a new four-year-deal as Andrea Radrizzani’s first move in charge of the club.

 

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
