While he might not be quite ready to fill Cristiano Ronaldo’s boots in the first-team, Vinicius Junior is looking far too good for Real Madrid’s B team.
Despite impressing in pre-season, the €46 million man is having to make do with games in the Castilla set-up but looks well above the level.
A couple of weeks back, he scored twice in the mini-derby with Atletico – a game he also had his head bitten by opposition skipper Tachi.
And against Unionistas today, the 18-year old notched his third for the second side by producing a very cheeky free-kick to catch out the wall and goalkeeper.
While it’s not as aesthetically pleasing as a net-buster of a free-kick, it completely wrong-footed the man between the sticks.
Real paid a world-record fee for a player under 19 to lure him from Flamengo and though he won’t be thrust into the deep end straight away, he’s clearly making a big impression.
Four days back in first-team training, he hit a stunning overhead kick past Keylor Navas after the ball was flicked onto him in the area. Unreal tekkers.
Vinicius has been named in Los Blancos’ Champions League squad so we look forward to him potentially strutting his stuff in club football’s premier competition.
