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."

Vinícius Júnior is a prime example of why managers should give their youngsters more opportunities to play. Not sure anytime saw him becoming this important for Madrid within his first season at the club. Good to see him win a penalty in such a big game.
