The veteran left-back, who started his career with the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A side, returns to Brazil after more than a decade away.

During the additional time, the Real Madrid legend exhibited his brilliance by executing a stunning skill that left his opponent, Luiz Araujo, astounded.

Unfortunately, his remarkable display of skill was met with a brutal foul from Araujo, resulting in a foul and a subsequent red card for the former Atlanta United player.
