Jorginho praises Pukki and reveals Chelsea growth

“We’ll go out there to win, regardless of who plays and which characteristics they bring to the table. The important thing is the Coach has plenty of options to choose from,” said Jorginho in a Press conference.

“He is their most important player, but we should keep a close eye on all of them. Finland are not a surprise, as the quality of their players is evident and they work as a team.

“Pukki has a bit of everything, which makes him a complete striker. He times his runs well, is very intelligent in his positioning, runs hard, presses opponents and never stops moving.

“He protects the ball, can provide assists, he really is dangerous. It’s no coincidence that he’s the current Premier League top scorer.”

“I think I had a fantastic first season and it was fundamental for my growth process. I am stronger in defence now, I go into challenges with more determination and control the game. The Premier League has forced me to develop different skills.

“Roberto Mancini is putting his faith in me for the Nazionale and I am trying to prove on the field that I deserve that. I think more than anything I just had the characteristics to suit his idea of football.

“I’d love to score a goal tomorrow, but I’d be even happier if we came away with three points.”

It was difficult to get to grips with the pitch, as it bounced in a very irregular fashion. You looked at the ball, glanced up to see the other player movements and then it was gone. We struggled to impose our style of football due to our characteristics of playing with the ball to feet.”
