Sharing life and now the volleyball courts of the Brazilian national team, Darlan (21) and Alan Souza (29), are highlighted at the Brazil Games. The brothers shared the same dream of wearing the Brazil jersey and defending their country on the pitch.
The two were one of the main names in the match that brought Brazil closer to the Paris Olympics next year. Last Wednesday night they played side by side in the victory against Ukraine at the Maracanã. While Alan was in the game from the very beginning, Darlan came off the bench to bury the ball in the opponent’s field, drawing attention to his charisma with the team and the fans.
The brothers, who grew up in Niliclopolis in Rio’s Baixada Fluminense, are in the square accompanied by their mother Dona Aparecida. The matriarch is almost the third member of the gaming family. She applauds at every point and scolds her when she thinks that at some point in the games the guys have gone beyond the point.
The unity of the family is manifested in the social networks of athletes. Alan and Darlan often share photos together and next to their mother. The two are always interacting and joking with each other on Instagram.
While Darlan is following in his brother’s footsteps on the field, he shares his attention with his girlfriend V3lery Verona, who insisted on accompanying his beloved at the last pre-Olympic game. He shared the first photo of the couple and made statements on social media in August: Can I go everywhere you go? Can we always be so close, forever?, the athlete wrote. V3lery returned the confirmation and commented: Forever, my dear.
The athlete became a fan favorite due to his charismatic character and performing a jutsu when serving. The movement with his hands is the same as that of the character “Naruto”, known in the world of anime and youth.
The eldest has been living with therapist Julia de Oliveira for more than ten years. The two made their union official in 2019. They are parents of little C7cero, who is almost 2 years old, and Samuel, who is 5 years old. The player divides his Instagram profile between professional photos and many others with his family.
