The Story of The 30-Year-Old Messias Who Scored AC Milan's Winning Goal In His UCL Debut

AC Milan were in action in the 2021/2022 Champions League as they travelled to the Spanish capital, Madrid, to face Atletico Madrid in Match-week 5 of the competition.

Milan have been without a win since returning to the competition, which they have not qualified for in the previous seven seasons, but they now have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stage after Junior Messias scored a late winner in his Champions League debut for them in Spain. Many will be wondering who Junior Messias is. Below is his incredible story before he scored this important goal for Milan.

Three years ago, the 30-year-old Brazilian, named Junior Messias, was playing in Italy's 4th division. During that time, he used to deliver refrigerators and other household appliances while playing at the amateur level.

AC Milan will try to beat Liverpool on the final match day of the group stage and hope Atletico Madrid and FC Porto draw so they can qualify for the Champions League knockout stage.
