In an interview with journalist André Hernan, defender Murilo, from Palmeiras and recently called up to the Brazilian National Team, revealed in his opinion who are the five best defenders in Brazil. He mentioned Arboleda, from São Paulo, Gómez and Luan from Palmeiras, himself, and the defender Léo Pereira, from Flamengo. Gómez and Arboleda are constantly called up to the national teams of their countries, respectively, Paraguay and Colombia.


As for the Mengão sheriff, expectations were high for the defender to be on Dorival Jr.'s list for the friendlies against England and Spain, both now in March.

However, the one who was called up was his defense partner, Fabrício Bruno, in place of Marquinhos, from PSG, who was cut due to an injury. And there were also significant reinforcements in the sector.


Flamengo's performance on the field in 2024 has aroused strong interest from other teams in the way coach Tite's team plays. There are already 10 games without conceding goals, and Mengão has not yet been defeated this season. Over Fluminense, their main opponent in Carioca, the team had no difficulty in winning their place in the final.

Much of Rubro-Negro's consistency is due to a solid defensive system and the performance of a player in specific: defender Léo Pereira, or if you prefer, ' Karolino', nickname given to the player due to his romance with influencer Karoline Lima.


There are three goals in the state championship, including one of them, from a free kick, breaking a seven-month fast in Mengão without goals from set pieces. And the defender's work has been recognized by other athletes.

She's the good luck charm of Flamengo fans, there's no way around it! Karoline Lima was present at Maracanã last Wednesday night (10) and saw Rubro-Negro Carioca debut with a 2-0 victory against Palestino, from Chile. And the reputation of being hot and bringing luck to Mengão continues! The influencer, who is the girlfriend of defender Léo Pereira, even posted a post-game photo reinforcing the mantra. She wrote "I follow undefeated" and included the song "Invicto" by Filipe Ret in her stories.

Leo, in fact, had already said, after Flamengo won the Campeonato Carioca against Nova Iguaçu last Sunday (7), that the girlfriend was an amulet. "My amulet. One more to count, my love. We remain undefeated. It's the beginning of a wonderful story that we will build together. Thank you for everything, I love you", he wrote. Léo added: "I'm used to winning with you and Flamengo."

And if Karoline was present at the stadium, one item couldn't be missing: her heart-shaped bag. Flamengo fans also believe that the object is one of the factors that help the team achieve victories.


And it's like they say, "in a team that's winning, don't move", right? During the 90 minutes, the influencer filmed some of her reactions and was left goosebumps by the strength of Magnetica in the stadium.


To join the red-and-black nation, she chose a red strapless top, taking advantage of the occasion to take several photos in front of the mirror. The game takes place a few days after the Carioca 2K24 Awards, in which the athlete won in the "Best Defender" category. For the event, the couple shined in formal attire, she in a sparkly dress and he in a jacket also full of sequins.
