Like his twin brother, and current Leeds United first team player, Ronaldo Vieira, Romario Vieira is a player blessed with potential and the names of two of football’s greatest players.

What’s more, the similarities don’t stop there with Romario having joined his brother on the international stage (tweet – below). Whilst Ronaldo Vieira has pledged his immediate future to England, and won a World Cup winner’s medal in the bargain, brother Romario is looking at representing the country of his birth Guinea-Bissau.

The Leeds United youngster came off the bench as the Djurtos, currently ranked 96th in the world, lost 2-0 to Burkino Fasa in a friendly. Romario Vieira is yet to make his breakthrough in the Leeds United first team, but he has been something of a permanent fixture in Carlos Corberan’s Under-23 squad.

Romario Vieira, in earning his international début for Guinea-Bissau at first team level, has beaten his brother Ronaldo to that particular footballing landmark. The news of his appearance has been well-received by Leeds United fans, many who were quick to congratulate the youngster on his Twitter post.
