I'm a 35-year old Brazilian journalist who has also played football in Brazil for a long, long time. I had the privilege to play with and against some great names and I'm an avid student of the game. I do not consider myself the "one who's always right" but I'll never be afraid to give my opinion. I have interviewed many players, covered different leagues and aspects of football, written for different websites. It's an honor to be now here writing and discussing football with the Soccerlens Team. So as I usually say, no matter what you call this game Football, Soccer, Fútbol, Futebol, Calcio, Fußball, Футбол, Voetbal, サッカー This is the beautiful game and I'll be talking about it!
