Real Madrid wonder kids Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes played for Brazil U20 in a friendly against Chile U20 last night. The match ended 1-1 and Brazil’s only goal was scored by Rodrygo off a brilliant assist by Vinicius after a nice run from the winger.
It seems that both players have a very interesting future ahead of them even if they lack the experience to contribute regularly for Madrid this season. Los Blancos could reportedly decide to bring in Rodrygo this winter as he will turn 18 years old next January. Meanwhile, Vinicius is getting some minutes here and there now that Isco is injured. However, when the attacking players get healthy, coach Julen Lopetegui could decide to send him to Castilla so that he can continue his progress there.
Both players need minutes to develop and it would be a waste of time to have them sitting on the bench, so it will be interesting to see what Madrid decide to do this winter.
