Is it me or does this chap’s name look like it’s been written backwards?

Not going to weigh in as I’ve never heard of him. As you were...

<Dan LaFontaine voice> “This summer... Jayson Diesel masquerades as an Albanian soccer player, but secrets have a way of coming back to haunt you.”

N.B. I’m fully aware this is not an accurate reversal of his name.

He was really good a few years back. Gets up and down well, accurate passing and a good tackler. His crossing isn't his best attribute.

I haven't seen much of him in the last couple of seasons. He may have stagnated a little at Napoli.
Don't know that any players can cross a ball anymore. Seems to have died out of the game. Think Harry Kane is probably one of the best there is personally!

It comes with the move towards possession based football - crosses have a low chance of being successful passes. It's the same with corners unless you manage to hit the perfect one (low-ish, whipped to the near post for a glancing header to take it past the 'keeper) which, coincidentally, is why Eriksen hits the first man so much.
