Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr. showcased his exceptional talent during Brazil’s 4-1 victory over Paraguay during the Copa America’s group stage. 

In this match, the forward scored two goals, making him one of the standout players of the game and solidifying his reputation as a top contender for the Ballon d’Or this year. 

He was rightfully named the best player on the pitch and expressed his satisfaction with his performance.

During the match, Vinicius Jr. was heavily involved in the action. He had a total of 55 touches and was remarkably efficient, converting both of his attempts into goals. 

Additionally, he completed seven impressive dribbles, showcasing his agility and skill on the ball. He also made two crucial passes that contributed to Brazil’s overall play.

One for the team

After the match, Vinicius spoke about his motivations and dedication to the team. He emphasized that his primary focus is always on playing for the team and representing his country, Brazil, rather than seeking personal glory.

“I always say that I never play for myself, for the team, for Brazil, for my country, I always try to do the best things, but it’s not always possible,” said Vinicius as quoted by Globo

He expressed his happiness with his performance and highlighted that his abilities could significantly benefit his national team in future games, especially after being criticised for his past performances.

“Today I played a great game, I know I can improve a lot to help the national team, this team that wants to put Brazil in the place it deserves,” he added. 

Vinicius also reflected on the challenges they faced in their previous game, where Brazil drew 0-0 against Costa Rica. 

He criticized Conmebol, pointing out the difficulties posed by the pitch conditions and the refereeing. According to him, these factors often work against the team, making the competition even more challenging.

“The Copa America is always complicated by the pitch, by the referees who are always the opposite, by the way they treat us, but we have to keep going, we can only talk if we win, when we talk Conmebol says we talk too much,” he said.

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
