Carlos Henrique Casimiro (born 23 February 1992), known as Casemiro,[1] is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Brazil national team as a defensive midfielder.

Formed at São Paulo, where he scored 11 goals in 112 official games, he moved to Real Madrid in 2013, and also spent a season on loan at Porto. He was part of the Real Madrid squad that won three Champions Leagues, from 2013–14 to 2016–17.

A full international since 2011, Casemiro was in Brazil's squad at the 2015 and 2016 Copa América.

Club career

São Paulo

Born in São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Casemiro was a product of São Paulo FC's youth system. From the age of 11 upwards, he acted as captain to its sides;[2][3] he was known as "Carlão" – an augmentative form of his first name in Portuguese – early on, and would be called up for the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup.[4]

Casemiro made his Série A debut on 25 July 2010, in an away loss against Santos FC. He scored his first goal as a professional on 15 August, helping to a 2–2 draw with Cruzeiro Esporte Clube.[5]

On 7 April 2012, Casemiro scored the first goal of a 2–0 win over Mogi Mirim Esporte Clube at the Arena Barueri in that year's Campeonato Paulista after replacing the injured Fabrício early on, but was later sent off.[6] São Paulo also won the Copa Sudamericana, with the player making one substitute appearance in a 5–0 home success against Club Universidad de Chile in the quarter-final second leg on 7 November.[7]

Real Madrid

In late January 2013, Casemiro was loaned to Real Madrid in Spain, being assigned to the B-team in Segunda División.[8] He played his first game in the competition on 16 February, starting in a 1–3 defeat at CE Sabadell FC.[9]

Casemiro made his La Liga debut on 20 April 2013, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–1 home win over Real Betis.[10] On 2 June he scored his first goal in Europe, opening the reserves' 4–0 win over AD Alcorcón at the Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium;[11] eight days later, the move was made permanent for four years and a fee of R$18.738 million.[12][13][14]

Casemiro was loaned to FC Porto on 19 July 2014, in a season-long loan.[15] He totalled 40 games overall for the Portuguese, netting four times[16] including a free kick on 10 March 2015 in a 4–0 home win (5–1 aggregate) over FC Basel in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.[17]

On 5 June 2015, Casemiro returned to Real Madrid who activated his buyback clause,[18] and two months later his contract was extended until 2021.[19] On 13 March of the following year, he scored his first competitive goal for the Merengues, heading home an 89th-minute corner kick by Jesé in a 2–1 victory at UD Las Palmas.[20]

After being mostly a reserve player under Rafael Benítez, Casemiro became first-choice under his successor Zinedine Zidane,[21] and contributed with 11 appearances in the season's Champions League as the tournament ended in win. In the final against Atlético Madrid, he featured the full 120 minutes in a 1–1 draw in Milan (penalty shootout triumph).[22]

Casemiro scored four goals in 25 matches in the 2016–17 campaign, helping his team win the national championship for the first time in five years.[23][24] He scored a long-range strike in the Champions League final against Juventus FC, helping his side to a 4–1 victory;[25] he again found the net on 8 August 2017, putting his team ahead in an eventual 2–1 defeat of Manchester United for the UEFA Super Cup.[26]

International career

After appearing with the under-20s at the 2011 South American Championship,[27] Casemiro made his debut for the Brazil full side on 14 September 2011 in a 0–0 draw against Argentina, aged just 19.[28] He was named in the squad for the 2015 Copa América, but did not play any matches in the quarter-final exit in Chile.[29]
