📈 Futaa Performance Index: 🦊 Riyad Mahrez vs Samuel Chukwueze 🦅

Futaa's Performance Index gives AFCON stars and players around the world scores out of 100 according to the traits and qualities most important for players in their position.

Tonight's AFCON semifinal between Algeria and Nigeria showcases two brilliant right-wingers with different styles and at different stages of their careers. Will Mahrez's experience shine through against the youthful exuberance and raw talent of Samuel Chukwueze?

 

 

Villarreal star Samuel Chukwueze's man of the match performance against South Africa in the quarterfinals should see him keep his place in Nigeria's starting lineup against Algeria. His pace and directness make him a handful for any fullback, coupled with brilliant dribbling skills.

Mahrez is a more composed player when the tough gets going and at 20, Chukwueze is still a bit of an unknown quantity. The Algerian is smarter when it comes to making decisions in the final third and keeping hold of the ball when his team needs him to do so. 

This should be a great contest between two men capable of producing the spectacular. Expect the unexpected.
