Real's Brazilian Wonderkid Equals Casillas Record

Brazilian wonderkid Vinicius Junior made his debut in the UEFA Champions League for Real Madrid on Wednesday night, and equalled an Iker Casillas record in doing so.

The teenager has played more minutes under interim manager Santiago Solari than he did under previous Los Blancos boss Julen Lopetegui, despite the Argentine coach having been in charge of just four games so far.

Vinicius was handed his debut in Europe's biggest club competition against Viktoria Plzen this week and, as a result, is now the third youngest player in Real's history to play in the tournament, tied with Iker Casillas, according to Marca.

The winger appeared in the UCL for the first time at 18 years and 118 days old, just under 20 years after Casillas made his debut in the tournament against Olympiacos.

Vinicius assisted Toni Kroos' goal in the 67th minute, Real's fifth and final strike in their 5-0 win over Viktoria Plzen.
