He is at ease staying high up the field when he plays as a center-forward. There, he pushes the opposing center backs backward and attacks the near post frequently by cutting across the back line.

He also makes direct behind-the-back runs, but his effectiveness is greater when he uses his height and strength in the upper body to outmuscle center backs.
