Mini me: Joao Cancelo

Joao Cancelo takes a journey into yesteryear in this episode of Mini Me, presented by Nexen.

Prompted by a photo from the archives, our Portuguese full-back tells us all about his childhood and his earliest footballing memories.

Cancelo reveals who he idolised growing up, which were his first pair of football boots and which Portugal star’s shirt he had.

The 25-year-old also discusses his first steps into organised football and how his early experience of being part of a team helped him form lasting friendships.

Watch the video above to join Joao on a trip down memory lane.
