Marcos Cafu and Neymar are among the Brazil heroes congratulating Milan star Lucas Paquetá on his debut Seleçao goal.
The 21-year-old was the only real bright spark in Saturday’s 1-1 friendly draw with Panama.
He scored his first goal for the senior Brazil side on his full debut, wearing the iconic Number 10 jersey.
“Congratulations on the goal! May it be the first of many, champion!” wrote injured Neymar on Instagram.
Now retired Brazil and Milan hero Cafu was also impressed by Paquetá.
“It’s an important show of faith that they gave him the Number 10 shirt, but then he is ready to wear it. It’s not easy with some incredible predecessors, but he can reach those levels,” Cafu told Sky Sport Italia.
“He is doing very well at Milan and can shine for Brazil too.”
