Visiting Fluminense U19 team confirmed

16 July 2015

18-man squad announced for visit to St James Park

The 18-man squad which will be representing Fluminense U19 during their time in Europe – including their visit to St James Park on Monday 20th July – has been confirmed.

Fluminense’s future stars will first be facing a Southampton squad on the south coast before their visit to Devon, and will then head to the CEE Cup in Prague before finishing their European excursion with a defence of the Internationales U19-Fußballturnier title in Oberndorf, Germany.

The team that will visit the Park is as follows:

Head coach: Edevaldo de Freitas
1. Jennerson
2. Breno Caetano
3. Matheus Carrasco
4. Kadu
5. Guilherme
6. Ayrton
7. Fernando
8. Andrey
9. Felipe
10. João Vitor
11. Patrick
12. Leonardo
13. Renato
14. Zé Ricardo
15. Alex
16. Michel
17. Caio
18. Berg

Coach Edevaldo de Freitas is himself a graduate of Flu’s youth system, and went on to feature for the Brazil national team in the 1982 World Cup.

Meanwhile goalkeeper Jennerson, who joined Flu as a futsal player at the age of six, has a flourishing reputation as a penalty stopper and kept out two spot-kicks when the Tricolor won the Rio Cup last year.

In the manner of countrymen Roberto Carlos and Marcelo, full-back Ayrton has a traction engine of a left peg and has pace to burn, while Fernando is the string-puller in the final third that can thread the needle and contribute with goals.

In attack, Felipe has become a pivot in attack for Flu – he acts as a reference point for the other attackers to work off, and has been known to produce some quality finishes.
