Little by little, I was conquering my goals with a lot of dedication and help from all the professionals who, in some way, made me evolve. Those were moments that will never leave my thoughts: my professional debut, my first goal at Maracanã... It was everything very fast and intense. Today I thank my family, everyone who was part of this story, employees, coaching staff, players and especially the fans. You are incredible", he said.
