Club changes in the youth categories are common. Where a boy starts to follow his path in football will not always be the same place he becomes a professional. Defender Johnny, 17, went through this. He started at Vasco, stayed for seven years, and this Monday, in São Januário, he was champion of the Copa Rio U-17 wearing the Flamengo shirt, scoring the penalty that sealed the victory.

Johnny he had made a capital mistake in the first half, when he missed a silly pass that resulted in a great goal from Bruno Lopes, from before the middle of the field. Vasco won 1-0 and returned a 2-1 defeat in the first game, in Gávea, taking the decision to penalty kicks. The comeback seemed to be written for Flamengo's defender, who was the seventh to hit and closed the score at 6-5.


- We were doing well in the match. Mistakes happen. It happened several times. It's not just me, it's not just our goalkeeper, it's not just our full-back, midfield, striker. It's work, understand? Always focus on the objective and it is not a mistake that will shake our team, our team. It's about staying firm and knowing that you're going to win the game - said Johnny, in an interview with ge.


- A turnaround. Gratitude to God. Knowing that I made my friends happy, I made Flamengo, I made the nation and my family happy. My family is essential.

Coach Filipe Luís showed a lot of trust in Johnny. After leaving Vasco, the defender had a quick spell at Boavista and arrived at Flamengo in February last year. In March of this year, he signed a contract until January 31, 2026.


- The only thing I said is that I asked him to play. I'm the one who asks the goalkeeper to stay early, if it goes wrong it's my fault, but I like that, that courage. They will definitely make a mistake, it will give the opponent a goal, but I know the risk, I know the players I have in my hand. It's a shame he made a mistake, because he's a boy who almost always played with me or always. He is a boy who tries hard and fights. What makes me happiest is that he turned things around, played a great second half, forgot his mistake, because we have to forgive ourselves. Tennis talks about this a lot. And he ended up scoring the decisive goal - said Filipe.

“Against a team of that level, Vitória makes a good game. We are our team again, different from what we did against Grêmio and Fortaleza. We don't concede goals because of the opponent's creativity or ability, but much more because of poor decision-making and our lack of initiative. In the same way that we suffered the setback against Botafogo, in the same way we conceded both goals today”, says Thiago Carpini.
