Santos wonderkid Kaio Jorge following in Neymar’s footsteps as Libertadores heroics catch Real Madrid’s eye

The 18-year-old scored three goals in the quarter-final to sink Gremio, bringing back memories of the Brazilian side’s triumphant 2011 campaign

Inspired by the dazzling talents of Pele, Zito, Pepe and Coutinho to name just a few, Santos hold a strong claim to the title of possessing the first great Copa Libertadores team.

Once the golden era of the 1960s ended, however, the club had to wait for the good times to return.

After decades of under-achievement, the Peixe finally began to establish themselves back among Brazil and the continent’s elite this century, culminating in further Copa glory in 2011 as they ended a run of 48 years without picking up the coveted trophy.
