The "Elkeson's School Football Tour" activity was held in Zhongshan's Dongsheng Qiushi School on January 18. The famous China international Elkeson came to interact with students and performed freestyle football skills. He also provided students his advice after a school football match.
This is a public welfare activity initiated by a local enterprise, aiming at nurturing the football atmosphere in schools and arousing students' enthusiasm for football.
This is Elkeson's first public appearance in 2021. After he finishes the tour he will begin his national team training. Elkeson said that he hoped to use his vast popularity to stimulate children's enthusiasm for football.
As a nominee for Chinese Footballer of the Year 2019 and the first foreign-born naturalized player in China, Elkeson has been the top scorer of the Chinese Football Association Super League many times.
