He kinda reminds me of Paulinho. A pseudo-midfielder with his best attributes being his "goal-sense" and high footballing IQ (reading of the game) rather than actual ball skills. I remember Paulinho scoring a ton of goals in 2018 WC qualifying for Brazil (including a hat-trick) playing the same way. He makes the same sort of shadow runs and probes the pitch in the same fashion. It's part of the reason he's been able to play at top clubs like Barca and be a mainstay in the national team. Guys like him and Khedira just add something different despite not being great ball players. Sami at his best is obviously a better player though.

For a guy who is so terrible according to everybody, he sure scores and gets himself into a lot of great goal opportunities. Between this match and the last he got himself into 5-6 great goal scoring chances.

Eh does he really score alot of goals? Hitting the posts and missing goals from 1 yard of the line dont count as goals. Getting in great postions means nothing if cant actually the finish simple chances.

In 2018, Sami Khedira financed the schooling fees of 120 kids through his foundation & charity organization which he created in 2014 to help disadvantaged kids. Previously, in 2017 Khedira had bought 1200 tickets for the Germany v Norway game which he gifted to poor kids.
