Attacker

Corinthians Alagoano

Before reading this, it's worth reading my post on how the 1994/95 generation is shaping up as one of the best ever. It's also worth looking at how the small state of Alagoas is turning into a football factory. Then, you might want to prepare yourself for a kid who is sure to be hyped up later on.

Willian first caught my eye on a video posted by bolanascostas, one of my youtube subscriptions. He scores a goal that is, to say the least, quite good. After a bit of research, you'll see why he's such an interesting player. For starters, the goal:

Breaking a record held by Fred for fastest goal in Brazilian football. Fred was playing in a small U20 championship with America Mineiro at the time.

This goal was scored in the Campeonato Alagoano, Under 18. Sounds like a good place to start. Turns out that last week, Corinthians Alagoano, led by Willian, won the title. Let's take a look at the top scorers table, shall we?

Ok, so he dominated that. 28 goals in 13 games. As a 16 year old in a U18 league. Edil, second highest scorer, was born in January of 1992. Difference: 23 months.

Then, a few days after I found the first video, a second video is posted with more highlights. Seems like he's dominated just about everything.

Today, an article published, suggesting that scouts from all over Brazil have been flocking up to see him. Some of them claim that withing 3-4 years, Willian will be one of the biggest names in Brazilian football. They say he's the technically strong center-forward we have been waiting for since Adriano and Ronaldo in their prime.

Corinthians Alagoano have reportedly recieved visits from first division clubs, Asian clubs and European clubs for him already. So it's about time we start watching this kid.

Great scouting (as usual).

Looking at the top scorers table, it seems that Corinthians U18 side are pretty lethal.

Got to question the keeper for that goal straight from kick off though, he was hardly busting a gut to get back and save it was he?!!

Keeper thought it was going over. It did dip at the last moment though, as did end up just below the bar. Was a pretty good shot.

And yeah, Corinthians won the league, but they had some tough competition at the end. They eliminated the traditionnal powers, ASA and CRB, in the latter stages.

Time for an update.

Willian was snapped up by second division side Sport Recife (the closest big team to the state of Alagoas) and played his first game last week. He's still more than 4 months away from turning 18.
