Willian is left footed and prefers to play on the wing from where he can dribble inside. Although he is not bad at all with his right foot and is also constantly working to improve both feet. Another aspect in which Willian needs improvement is physicality. He is 5’6″ and is not that great physically yet according to his coach. However it should be taken in consideration that Willian is just 17 now and it will improve in the upcoming days.

Willian likes to dribble with pace along with amazing trickery and cut inside from the wing to be infront of the goal. Once he is in middle or gets room he can shoot with high power. Estevao while speaking on his style of play mentioned that he is comfortable on the right side. He also stated that he likes to be in the middle from where he can control his direction. He continued that from there he can go to left or to right depending on where more free space is and attack from there.
