It was a black spot on an otherwise impressive performance from the 18-year-old
On Wednesday night, with Real Madrid already up 4-0 after a resounding first-leg victory, Real Madrid’s Vinícius Júnior was handed his first-ever home start since completing his move to the Spanish giants from Flamengo over the summer.
He did little to disappoint, scoring Real Madrid’s fifth goal and assisting the second of Marco Asensio’s two goals on the night in a 6-1 rout of third-division side Melilla.
However, in the 50th minute, the Brazilian starlet had a moment he’d rather forget.
Vinícius Júnior attempted to replicate Neymar’s famous rainbow flick and well… see for yourself.
