Lucas Paqueta dedicates first AC Milan goal to former club Flamengo

Lucas Paqueta has dedicated his first goal for AC Milan to former club Flamengo after their fires last week.

The Brazilian came up through the same Flamengo academy that burnt down this week, killing 10 teenage players and a club employee.

“It has been a very difficult time," he told Sky Sport Italia after scoring in the 3-0 win over Cagliari.

“I am living a dream playing for Milan and scoring my first Serie A goal, but it was also a dream for me to be in the Flamengo youth academy and I can't forget those who were experiencing the same thing."
