Difficult and requires a solid will closer to a miracle, and this is what Eduardo Camavinga, the star of Real Madrid and the French national team, did, who has become one of the most prominent soccer players today.


Eduardo Camavinga

The child, who was born in refugee camps in Angola, did not expect that after 20 years he would be among the best players in the world, and he would participate with one of the world's strongest teams in the most important football event, which is the World Cup.


To escape from the hell of war in the Congo, and under the sound of cannons and fire, a family decided to flee Kinshasa and go to a refugee camp in the Angolan city of Mekunji, where this city bears the birth of an outstanding football talent.


Where Eduardo Camavinga, the star of the French national team and Real Madrid, lived a very difficult childhood since he was born in Angola on November 10, 2002, to a father and mother from the Congo.


After Eduardo reached the age of two years, his family moved to France, where they began to live in the “Fougeres” region, to start a new life that opened the door for him to a new future away from the sounds of fire and war.

His upbringing and football career


Camavinga started his sports career in an early period of childhood, where he practiced judo for a while, before giving it up to focus only on football.


In 2013, the Camavinga family's home burned down, destroying most of the family's possessions.


Eduardo says that this was the motive that made him practice football professionally.


And at the age of seven, Eduardo played with the club Fougères, where he took his first steps in professional football.


And about his start with this team at a young age, Camavinga says: “When I signed up to join the club, I never realized the need to meet the coach. Instead, I dashed onto the field and grabbed a ball that was being played by kids my age.”


He continued: “The efforts made by the children to retrieve the ball proved to be a failure because I had thrown the ball past and put the ball over the fence. I lost their match on my first day of training with them.”


With the Fougeres, Eduardo spent four years building the defensive dynamics that have now become a feature of his game, his ability on the ball and his unique technical handling of the field admired by teammates and opposition alike.


Camavinga joined the Rennes Youth Academy at the age of 11, so that the years would pass and his talent in midfield would show, to sign his first professional contract on December 14, 2018, at the age of 16 years and one month.
