Carlos Henrique José Francisco Venâncio Casimiro (born 23 February 1992), known as Casemiro, 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 UEFA Champions Leagues from 2013–14 to 2016–17, being elected to the UEFA Squad of the Season in the latter, and starting in two Finals.

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;[1][2] 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.[3]

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.[4]

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.[5] 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.[6]

Real Madrid

In late January 2013, Casemiro was loaned to Real Madrid in Spain, being assigned to the B-team in Segunda División.[7] He played his first game in the competition on 16 February, starting in a 1–3 defeat at CE Sabadell FC.[8]

Casemiro made his La Liga debut on 20 April 2013, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–1 home win over Real Betis.[9] 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;[10] eight days later the move was made permanent, for four years and a fee of R$18.738 million.[11][12][13]

Casemiro was loaned to FC Porto on 19 July 2014, in a season-long loan.[14] He totalled 40 games overall for the Portuguese, netting four times[15] 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.[16]

On 5 June 2015, Casemiro returned to Real Madrid who activated his buyback clause,[17] and two months later his contract was extended until 2021.[18] 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.[19]

After being mostly a reserve player under Rafael Benítez, Casemiro became first-choice under his successor Zinedine Zidane,[20] 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).[21]

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.[22][23] He scored a long-range strike in the Champions League final against Juventus FC, helping his side to a 4–1 victory;[24] 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.[25]

International career

After appearing with the under-20s at the 2011 South American U-20 Championship, Casemiro made his debut for the Brazil full side on 14 September 2011 in a 0–0 draw against Argentina, aged just 19.[26] He was named in the squad for the 2015 Copa América, but did not play any matches in the quarter-final exit in Chile.[27]
