Bruno spent the first three years of his footballing life in his home town learning under the tutelage of Mario de Souza before heading to the big smoke as a twelve year old to join National. His journey eventually lead him to Melbourne City in 2015, after stints in Italy, Argentina, Brasil, Spain & Greece.
A prolific and elegant goalscorer, Bruno, after taking Australian citizenship, made his Socceroos debut in 2022 at 34 years of age in a World Cup qualifying loss to Japan. At the time of writing he was still, at 36, the leading goal getter in the ALM with his third Australian club, Melbourne Victory.
I found him a delightful man to talk with and wish him all the success in the future.
