Jorginho is a Portuguese football player, currently playing for Benfica, one of the most famous teams in Europe. He is currently second on the all-time list for most goals scored in a league season. This makes Jorginho one of the all-time leading scorers in Portugal as well.
Jorginho is a Portuguese football player who is originally from Brazil. Born in Lisbon, he made his name in the field of soccer when he was just 16 years old. He has gone on to play for Benfica, Sporting Lisbon, Vitoria Guimaraes and FC Barcelona. Today, he is a senior professional goalkeeper for Vitoria Guimaraes, Sporting Lisbon, and Benfica. Prior to this, Jorginho was a right midfielder/winger for Vitoria, and he is well known for his goals.
One of Jorginho’s most impressive achievements to date is his two-goal debut for Brazil against England at the St. James’ Park in February of this year. Jorginho made an impact immediately, making an excellent performance, as he scored twice, giving him his first international cap. During this match, he became the youngest player to make a debut for Brazil at the age of 16. He is one of the more promising players in Brazil; he is expected to become a starter at some point, but right now he is more of a bench player, used whenever Brazil need a rest. His appearance in the England game was his first for the country and he impressed the England coach; he was given a chance to play in the World Cup and he impressed the team in qualifying for it.

Jorginho has impressed at both club and national level for his country. He has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Seville FC side and he has also impressed during his national side career, playing several times for the senior side and helping them win the recent South America nations league match against Uruguay. With this latest international goal, Jorginho has put himself firmly into the role of top attacking player in Brazil, and he is expected to be a mainstay at left back for the foreseeable future. Jorginho also impressed the Manchester City fans when he featured in their pre-season defeat to Chelsea; he scored a late equalizer and he looked thoroughly inspired, which added to his reputation as one of Brazil’s best.
This season looks to be a difficult season for Jorginho. He is yet to score in the league and has not started quite well in the cup competitions. Internationally, he has failed to make any real impact, even though he has made several appearances, but he remains a peripheral figure to many of Brazil’s top sides. Despite this, Jorginho is still rated highly by TFF, and if he keeps up the good form that he has shown in the past then he should continue to be regarded as one of the premier league football players of this generation.
Despite this, Jorginho may need to start injecting some more confidence into his game if he wants to emulate the same form that he showed during the season’s first half. Jorginho has only scored four goals in seven games for Brazil, although he did score against Uruguay during their November World Cup victory. For any professional football player this kind of return to full strength in a vital game is a rare chance to show what he can do and with the international break looming large over the next few months, Jorginho needs to use all of this to step up his game and fire Brazil to another victory. It is perhaps this form of desperation that has helped Jorginho Frello score such a remarkable hat-trick against arch rivals Brazil in November; it seems that the pressure of Brazil’s success is too much to bear for the 21-year-old and he needs a miracle to leave the Estadio da Capitaine looking happy and relaxed. Only time will tell whether Jorginho will be able to live up to his superb performance against Argentina but one thing is certain, if he wants to take his game to a higher level then he needs to start scoring goals at a quicker rate.
