The attacker, who primarily plays on the left wing but can also slot in anywhere across the frontline, becomes the Eagles’ third import signing for the 2021 campaign. The Rio de Janeiro native, who turns 22 in June, came through the youth ranks of Brazilian top-flight outfits Botafogo and Corinthians before joining fellow giants Vasco da Gama in 2017. Known better as Moresche, he then made his professional debut for Vasco da Gama in 2018 just before turning 20 and has also represented Brazil at youth international level.

After spending time on loan at top-flight side Avai FC in 2019, Moresche moved to Latvian top-tier side Riga FC in 2020, who then loaned him out to Belarusian Premier League side Torpedo Zhodino. Moresche left Riga at the start of this year.


Geylang Head Coach, Mohd Noor Ali, said: “He is a fantastic player on the ball, but what caught our eye is his willingness to work for the team. That is very important to the style of football we want to play, and I hope the fans are excited to see him in action.”
