It is worth mentioning that Camilo needed less than an hour on the field to command Leão in the rout over the lantern. The team opened 4-0 still in the first stage and soon after the fifth goal – scored by Roberson precisely from an assist from shirt 10 -, coach Ricardo Catalá still substituted him in the 10th minute of the second half.
Camilo had already been highlighted by Mirassol with a free-kick goal in the comeback victory over São José-RS in the 11th round. In all, the midfielder accumulates five goals in 11 games for Leão and is Leão’s top scorer in Serie C.
In the best phase of his career, when he played for Botafogo, Camilo was even called up by Tite for a friendly of the Brazilian team against Colombia, in January 2017. On the occasion, the midfielder was on the field for about 15 minutes in the victory by 1 to 0 at the Nilton Santos stadium.
