The new generation takes the lead and becomes the hope of access and the future of Vasco | Vasco
In soccer, as we speak’s reality is tomorrow’s lie, say these concerned. With Vasco, this principle applies properly to the basis. The youngsters at the membership completed 2021 on a low observe. After the poor efficiency of the kids final season, it grew to become cheap that the solid needs to be wholesome, skilled, with the soul of Serie B in 2022. The signings had been in that path. Some succeeded, many didn’t.
Highlights: Vasco 4 x 1 Náutico for the thirtieth spherical of Brasileirão Série B 2022
In apply, nevertheless, it’s the kids who carried the group on their backs in the final half of Serie B. A new generation full of individuality, who arrived to interrupt the paradigms and overturn not solely the hope of access, but in addition the foundation for a new Vasco, which will likely be pulled from 2023. After all, all the younger highlights of the solid renewed their contracts this 12 months. And with SAF, the expectation is that the membership won’t have to simply get rid of their expertise to get assets for day-to-day soccer, as has occurred in recent times.
18-year-old trio + Figueiredo
Andrej, Marlon Gomes, Figueiredo and Eguinaldo… gamers who weren’t in any fan’s ultimate group in January. In reality, none of them had been even half of the solid when Ze Ricardo took over at the starting of the season. The first three had been in Kopinja. Eguinaldo was from the U17 group.

However, this group is essential in the marketing campaign. Vasco’s final 4 victories have featured kids. This was the case in opposition to CRB (two objectives by Andrej and one by Eguinaldo), CRB (two objectives by Andrej and one by Marlon), Guarani (objective by Eginaldo) and Nautico (objectives by Andrej, Eguinaldo and Figueiredo).
At the starting of the 12 months, whereas Andrej, Marlon and Figueiredo had a great marketing campaign in Copinha, Vasco negotiated or acquired rid of different kids in the group, many of whom had been sealed by the failure of the 2021 marketing campaign. Ricardo Grassa (Júbilo Iwata ), Andrej ( Coritba), Lucao (Bragantino), Bruno Gomez (Inter), Galarza (Coritba), Caio Lopez (Leganes), Thiago Reyes (Botafogo-SP), MT (Santa Clara), Caio Tenorio (Azuris), Lucas Santos (Tombense) , Vinicius Paiva (Ituano), amongst others much less common, weren’t in the plans.
The new generation arrived softly. Figueiredo and Andrei had been built-in into the skilled solid after Kopinha. The striker, by the approach, was half of the squad final 12 months, had a couple of alternatives, however completed the 12 months on the backside. Uses the Sao Paulo Cup to regain status. He was the competitors’s prime scorer and acquired one other alternative.
Eguinaldo and Marlon Gomez boarded later. They had been known as up for a coaching interval with knowledgeable squad in July and by no means went down. They made their debut collectively in opposition to Ituano, and as we speak they begin for Vasco.
He is the star of the firm. At 18, he took over Vasco’s management with spectacular maturity. Arguably the most common participant in the marketing campaign. He is a defensive midfielder, however arrives properly in assault and has already scored six objectives in Serie B. A goal of European golf equipment, this week he renewed his contract till 2027. The tremendous is 50 million euros.

This is one other gem that got here out of Vasco’s base. Unlike Andrei, nevertheless, he has not been pampered over the years by the membership. It was in the Maranhão floodplain till final 12 months, was found by Artsul and had a meteoric rise in Rio de Janeiro. The joint prime scorer at this 12 months’s Carioca Under-20 version, he was snapped up by the professional, shortly established himself as a starter and has already scored three objectives. Faced with success, Vasco exercised the buy possibility and acquired 70% of the 18-year-old striker, which belonged to Artsul. Signed till 2027.
The 18-year-old midfielder has all the time been at the coronary heart of Vasco. He arrived at the membership in 2018 and has had spells in all the foremost classes of the choice. However, his fast adaptation to the skilled solid stunned. Like Eguinaldo, he shortly received a spot amongst the starters. He is flexible and can play in lots of positions. His nice efficiency up to now was in opposition to Tombense when he scored a lovely objective in midfield. He renewed his contract in February and his contract expires in December 2024.

He turned 21 in August and is the senior of the class. There had been alternatives final 12 months and it did not work out. However, this 12 months has rotated. He was Kopina’s prime scorer with eight objectives and excels at lovely objectives in the skilled event. There had been three of them, all in lovely photographs exterior the zone. Among the 4, he has the most probabilities in the group, alternated good performances with others and shouldn’t be thought-about a starter as we speak. However, he has been an essential participant in the marketing campaign and closed the win over Náutico on Friday with an outstanding objective. In March, his contract was renewed till the finish of 2025.
