Paqueta opens Brazil account

Milan star Lucas Paqueta has scored his first senior Brazil goal and achieved it wearing the iconic Number 10 jersey.

The 21-year-old creative midfielder already had two caps under his belt, but they were both brief substitute appearances in friendlies against the USA and El Salvador in September 2018.

His performances since the January move from Flamengo to Milan impressed enough to earn Paqueta not only a starting spot in this evening’s friendly with Panama, but also the prestigious Number 10 shirt.

It only took him 32 minutes to get on the scoresheet, peeling away from his marker to meet a long Casemiro cross at the back post.
