Player Profile

Kaio Jorge is nothing if not precocious. Still just 19, he has been playing first-team football for three years already: having impressed in the Santos academy, he was handed his senior debut against Athletico Paranaense in September 2018, aged just 16.

His breakout year came in 2020, when he made 46 first-team appearances in the league and Copa Libertadores, excelling in this latter tournament especially.

The Brazilian forward is the only player born in 2001 to have scored at least five goals in a single edition. He is also the scorer of the fastest Libertadores goal since 2013 – his strike against Gremio coming after just 11 seconds. That game in December 2020 saw him notch his first double in the competition.

Kaio won the U-17 World Cup with Brazil in 2019, finishing as the tournament's second-highest goalscorer with five, including one in the final against Mexico.
