- Fernando Bicalho
Fernando was born and raised in Belo Horizonte, the capital city of the state Minas Gerais, in Brazil. He has played football his whole life, but it’s the role of an attacking midfielder that he loves most. Bicalho loves staying around the opposition’s box, waiting for chances to assist goals and maybe grab one for himself.
Fernando’s father has always been his biggest supporter in football and in life. Through his family, Fernando learned the passion a person could have for the game whether it be the national team or the local club. When it comes to players he has always been amazed by the magic of Ronaldinho, a Brazilian legend who left a legacy across the world as both a club and national team player.
Fernando supports his local football club in Brazil, Altético Mineiro. The club, nicknamed the Galo or Alvinegro, are a constant threat in the Brazilian First Division and in continental competitions.
