Gabriel, a 16-year-old youth player called into action to aid short-handed Santos in a Copa da Brasil game against Gremio, scored in Santos' 1-0 win.
The boy said he had
gone to the game as a spectator, having trained earlier in the day with the youth team.
"I was playing a video game at home and came to watch the game with my father and only knew I would play when I got here," Gabriel said. "It was a present."
