RAFAEL RATÃO (Rafael Rogerio da Silva) - Ponte Preta

Recommended Posts



Full Name: Rafael Rogerio da Silva

DoB: 30 November 1995

Born: Brazil

Postion - Striker

Club - Ponte Preta

Ratão, or 'doormouse' in translation, is a young striker from Ponte Preta making the headlines for the wrong reason at the moment, but is a talented young player.

A video clip doing the rounds from a couple days ago after he scored to put Preta 1 up late on in the Brasiliero tie versus Fluminense.....an amazing strike? mad skill? unfortunately for Rafael its a FAIL.


Great hit, bit of luck with the deflection off the keeper.....the rest is classic though.

here is his debut goal debut goal versus Santos, nice run, shocking positioning from the last defender though, and neat finish past the onrushing keeper...

Young sprinter, the attacker is one of the revelations that gained ground since the arrival of the new coach. The other is the steering wheel Alef.

The 'Doormouse' is very young, but it has quality. It's a pleasant surprise to many, one of the good things that happened to the Bridge this year - coach Jorginho

Since Jorginho took over the struggling club, he promtoed several young players. Ratão was one who has slowly been introduced in the last month, firstly as a sub getting 20 mins here and there, handed his full debut on 3 October in a 4-0 defeat to Ath MG, scoring a late consolation versus Santos, and then another late goal versus Fluminense last weekend. He partnered William last night versus Deportivo Pasto of Colombia in the Copa SUDA.

With the club battling to beat the drop, could the youngster help Ponte Preta stay up and continue his form of late goals? One to keep an eye on as the season closes.
