Casemiro is a Brazilian footballer who has become one of the most important players for both his national team and his club, Real Madrid C.F. Not only does this make him one of the players who always play for Real Madrid, he has also been called up for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Here you can find out everything about him.
Although he has become known among football lovers worldwide as Casemiro, the player was actually born Carlos Henrique Casimiro on 23 February 1992 in the Brazilian city of São José dos Campos. He also grew up as a street footballer here. As his family was very poor, Casemiro always spent the night at the home of his relatives, including his aunt and grandmother, because his house was too small to accommodate them all.
Before he became a teenager, he had already worked hard on the path that would make him one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, and by the age of 14, he had already founded a youth club.
Although his surname is Casimiro, the name Casemiro was mistakenly typed on his jersey and stuck on him.
As for his career as a professional footballer, Casemiro began his club football career as a teenager with FC São Paulo. That was in 2002, and he remained with the club until 2010 when he moved to the senior side for the next three years. After his stay with the Brazilian club, he transferred to Real Madrid B on loan in 2013. That same year, after only 15 matches, he was appointed to the senior side on loan, but the move was made almost immediately. In 2014, he was sent to Porto on loan to return to Real Madrid in 2015.
By the end of the 2017/2018 season, he had already played 90 games for the club, scoring 10 goals even as a defensive midfielder.
With the Spanish league team, Casemiro has won a La Liga title, a Copa del Rey, and 4 UEFA Champions League titles in five years. He has also won 2 UEFA Super Cups and 2 FIFA Club World Cups. Finally, the Supercopa de España is one of his titles.
Carlos Henrique Casimiro made his national debut in 2009 when he played for the Brazilian U-17 team, and in 2011 he played for the U-20 team, with whom he scored 3 goals after 15 matches. Also in 2011, he received the call to play for the senior national team. Before he was called up for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, he had already played 20 games for the team, but he still has to score a goal.
With the national team, he won the South American Youth Championship in 2011 and the FIFA U-20 World Cup the same year. He has also achieved a number of successes on an individual level, such as promotion to the squad for the 2017 UEFA Champions League season and the FIFPro World XI as the third team also in 2017.
The Brazilian defensive midfielder was brought up as the first child of his parents, Magda de Faria Casemiro and Servando Casimero. Like many other football stars who came from Brazil, Carlos Henrique Casimiro grew up in a very poor family, mainly with his mother as his father was away.
As a result, he and his two younger brothers were forced to fend for themselves and rely on what little their mother could afford.
He married Anna Mariana Casemiro in 2014 and together they have a daughter. Anna Mariana Casemiro is a make-up artist in Brazil. The couple made the Covenant for Life on June 28, 2014, in Itatiba, Brazil, and in 2016 their first child, a daughter named Sara, arrived.
The defensive midfielder and Anna Mariana Casemiro are expected to be together since 2011.
