Everson, the goalie for Atletico Madrid, is the leader of the Brasileiro and the squad with the strongest defence thus far. When the player remembered the day when his father played playing football and he joined him, he cried. The goalie at Galo faced lot of ups and downs and has had to deal with a lot of difficulties. It was the same throughout his career, and he recalled a few emotional moments while wearing the national team's shirt.

“I believe that he(the child Everson) did it. He achieved his lifelong ambition, his professional dream, despite many challenges with his family as a new father, and today he is here making a dream come true, not only for Everson, but for any child with a dream. Dreaming is not prohibited. It’s not impossible. Always fight for your ambitions, because if you struggle, fight, and seek, you will achieve them,” the goalie stated.

“Talking about my father brings up a lot of emotions in me. My father, a varzea goalie, inspired me to become a goalkeeper. At sports, I always caught the ball for him. Between games, I'd go to the goal and have my father kick the ball for me. He wasn't even have a glove.

Today, I am certainly living out my lifelong ambition of pursuing a professional football career. Certainly, giving my father a lot of pride, not only for my father, but also for my mother who always accompanied me, but my father was my biggest idol.
