These are the five things you did not know about Camavinga.

1. The story of Eduardo Camavinga is a true example of overcoming and persevering until achieving a dream: playing for Real Madrid. Since he was a child, he had to face various adversities, such as being born in a refugee camp in Miconje (Angola), where his family escaped from fleeing the war in the Congo, or seeing his house in France completely burn down, reduced to ashes.

2. Camavinga is the third of six siblings. His family is essential in his life, accompanying him on each of his steps. At the press conference for his presentation as a white footballer, he recognized that they were his greatest support. In fact, he affirmed that when he plays football, he does it for them and tries to return their affection on the field.
3. The 18-year-old French footballer ensures that he is available to play in any position in the midfield that Carlo Ancelotti decides to line up for him. He is left-handed and his physique allows him to have the ability to break lines with ease, thanks to his quick change of pace. 

However, at his previous club, he used to play as a defensive midfielder in front of the centrals, being very forceful on the cut, as well as an interior.
4. In the 2018/19 season, he began his career in professional football. At just 16 years old, he became the first footballer born in 2002 to make his debut in one of the five major European leagues. Likewise, in September 2020, he became the first footballer born in the 21st century to make his debut with the French national team, at the age of 17 years and 9 months.

5. Before opting for soccer exclusively, Camavinga also practiced martial arts, specifically Judo. In addition, the young Real Madrid player has triple nationality, that of Angola, Congo and France.
