So, the winger from Porto Alegre will be officially unveiled on Friday. Born on 14 December 1996, Raphinha is a constant threat on the right wing. Hugely talented with the ball at his feet, he aims to beat his man with one-on-one dribbling. As a left-footed right winger, his natural tendency is to always try to get closer to the goal to provide an accurate cross for an assist or get a shot in on goal, precisely how most of his goals and assists have come to date.
He is also a dead ball specialist. The accuracy of his left foot makes him a very dangerous player on both free kicks and on the edge of the area from corners.
