|Desc||A fresh addition to the Ronaldo replacement ranks, Bruno Henrique’s time as Selecao No.9 has amounted to a paltry 16 minutes across two friendlies in 2019, but he’s done incredibly well to get this far. The 28-year-old attacker first hit the big time in 2016, following a big-money move to Wolfsburg. But things didn’t work out for the pacy forward, who endured 14 goalless appearances in Germany before returning to Brazil.|

The forward only made his Brazilian Serie A debut at the start of last year after a tortuous climb up the pyramid, and he affirmed that playing in the Bundesliga just 12 months later was a dream come true] Life in football is not easy, and I am grateful for everything I have. I have been through a great deal in football, I have gone hungry and lived in a hostel playing for tiny clubs. I have faced a lot of difficulties, but working hard I have made it to where I am.
[He has not struggled with the change of surroundings in 2016, despite his confession that he is still getting the hang of German] I am very happy here in Germany, I am enjoying life here. The country is beautiful and very organised, only the language is complicated, but I have a company that works with me and works everything out for me, which makes everything easier and reduces any problems.
