Vitor Roque followed in Ronaldo’s footsteps

Vitor Roque enters the history of the canarinha this Saturday in Tingi. The Athletico Paranaense striker, wanted by FC Barcelona, ​​will not only make his debut with his country’s senior teams, but will also become the youngest to make his debut with Brazil since 1994.

Roque will thus follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo ‘O’ Fenomeno, who in 1994 became the youngest player in the history of the Brazilian team at the age of 17. Roque will continue in his awakening, debuting with the senior team for the “canarinha” 18 years ago and just 25 days old and will be placed second in the historical order of the “verdemarela” team. In addition, curiously, Vitor Roque also went through Cruzeiro, with whom Ronaldo made his professional debut, and where “O Phenomenon” had the presidency, before Atheltico Paranaense paid the release clause in April 2021.
