In the video posted on Twitter, seen by Sports Brief, Zinchenko demonstrated his incredible technical abilities when he beat his teammates in a keepy-uppy drill at training.

The footage gives credence to Kyle Walker's earlier admission of Zinchenko's technical skillset.

“Not in any order, my top three are Zinchenko, Mahrez & Silva. Two touches, head tennis, so good. You’re leaving De Bruyne out, Foden, Cancelo, but they don’t come close to those three.” Walker told Michael Timbs in an interview as quoted by Sport Bible.

Zinchenko breaks down in tears as he calls for an end to the war in Ukraine

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Manchester City defender Oleksandr Zinchenko broke down as he narrated the effects of the Russian aggression on his home country of Ukraine.

Zinchenko was speaking to the press ahead of Ukraine’s big clash against Scotland on Wednesday night at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Ukraine has been war-torn since Russian President Vladimir Putin authorized his troops to war in February. The Daily Mail reports that Zinchenko fought back the tears as he addressed a question from a Ukrainian journalist asking how he felt about the whole situation.
