As far as i can tell he is yet to make his debut

Indio is a player who has caught wengers eye with report he went on a trial with the gunners earlier this year but can not sign for Arsenal until he turns 18 in febuary next year.he has stated he would like to turn as a pro with his current club but would be tempted by a move to europe.

at the tender age of 9 Indio was playing with players who where 3 years older than him and continues to play futsal as well to keep his close control skills to a high standard.

In 2009 Indio was a key player for the Vasco youth team that won the local state championship ahead of rivals Flamengo, scoring nine goals in the league. The following season he was promoted up an age group, despite being a year younger than his peers. By the end of the year he had yet again established himself as a first pick in the team that would eventually finish second behind Fluminense in their division.

Victory in the Carioca (Rio) U15 Championship followed in 2011, in which he scored nine goals. He was soon handed the number 10 shirt for the Brazilian U15 national team, and impressed during the 2011 Mini Copa America in Venezuela, scoring three goals on route to victory with his nation.

The midfielder's biggest quality is said to be his ability to break down the opposition via his eye for a pass, dribbling ability and speed. A good finisher on his stronger left foot, he is also a threat from set pieces. His small stature means he is said to suffer when marked individually however. Indio has cited Neymar and Ganso as his idols, and has also confessed his admiration for Arsenal's Theo Walcott.
