'Fearless' Vinícius Júnior Casually Ruining Giants Like Godin And Gimenez Is Proof He's The Real Deal

The courage of Vinicius Junior at such a young age is unbelievable.

He was fearless against Atletico Madrid's defensive giants in Diego Godin and José Giménez.

Real Madrid secured all three La Liga points as well as bragging rights on 'Atleti's own patch, thanks to the 18-year-old's brilliance.

He didn't get on the score-sheet but the Brazilian phenom was unplayable, casually destroying Godin and Giménez in separate moments.

A Twitter user has uploaded his highlights from Saturday's game accompanied with the caption: "Vinicius is fearless going at Godin and Jimenez. This is just the beginning for him."

Despite still being a teenager, he's becoming a vital member for Santiago Solari who revealed Vinicius Junior has been affected by the recent Flamengo tragedy.

A fire broke out at the clubs training ground, tragically killing 10 people.

"Obviously he is affected. It is his home, that's normal," he said.

"I insist, it's something very sad, especially for the families who are affected for whom we want to send them our thoughts and our condolences."

Vinicius Junior's composure amid a very difficult time is just further proof that this kid is the real deal.
