Since he was a child, Caio had a big dream – make a debut in Flamengo first team. It is possible that this dream will become a reality sooner than anyone ever expected. He is considered to be the greatest talent from “Rubro-Negro” academy since the appearance of Adryan, another “Fla” wonderkid. He was a mamber of Brazil national team during FIFA U-17 World Cup 2013, in which despite a good start, “Canarinhos” were eliminated unexpectedly already in the quarter-finals. Although he was a little in the shade of Nathan, Gabriel Boschilia or Mosquito, but He showed his best side and was certainly noticed by experts and scouts from around the world.
“With Boschilia of Sao Paulo another creative force to one side and Flamengo’s Caio Rangel a more direct runner to the other, Brazil have plentiful options.”
