Danilo Barbosa da Silva

15 years, CR Vasco da Gama

From a very poor family, growing up as the youngest of six children with no father figure, Danilo has come a long way. Within his age group the seventeen-year-old middle-field player is considered to be the rising star of Brazil’s young football talents. Danilo dominates the match not only for Rio’s traditional club Vasco da Gama, but he is also a key player for Brazil’s U17 national team at the World Cup 2013 in October and November.

Turning 18 by the end of this project, it is certain that Danilo – receiving offers from some of Europe’s leading clubs in England, Italy, Portugal and Holland – will be signing his first professional contract in one of the leading leagues in Europe, England being in pole position at the moment.
