Abubakar Ghali is a right foot attack winger who prefers to start from the left. He likes to wait for the wide ball on the wing and then stop and constantly aim at his opponent. He is very strong in fact in the 1 vs 1 offensive where he has quality and speed in the feints that confuse the full-back.
He is also difficult to mark because he can both re-enter on the right but also go to the bottom and then cross with excellent results with the left-footed. Thanks to his speed, he becomes a weapon to be exploited for the team in offensive transitions where he is often sought after to overturn the action and lead the counterattack. He does not have a great physical structure and therefore he is not successful in the aerial game but his low center of gravity, the light supports and the acceleration are the skills that characterize him and that he puts at the service of the team.
In the non-possession phase, he tightens his position to reinforce the midfield and does not let himself be begged when there is to chase the opposing full-back or go to help his teammate. He has resourcefulness, lightheartedness and athletic freshness to be dangerous and constant in the 90 '. However, he has good room for improvement in many respects due to his young age: he can grow in the shot on goal, in the attack of the same on the cross from the opposite side and in coldness and concreteness in front of the goalkeeper.
He can still work on the fundamental of the header but above all in the attitude of the body after some mistakes made by him or a teammate.
