After their 3-1 win over Atletico-PR on Saturday, the Vasco da Gama soccer team announced the arrival of two new fullbacks, who will help to fortify the team's defense.

The club decided to promote 20-year-old Douglas to play professionally. The fullback was previously with the youth team, but is now considered a valuable investment. He practiced with the rest of the Vasco da Gama reserve team on Saturday. The terms of his contract were not revealed.

Additionally, Vasco da Gama received Jadson Vieira on Saturday to undergo a routine physical. The fullback recently played for the Argentinean team Lanus.

After he passes all his medical exams, the player will be unveiled to the media on July 19. He is expected to sign a contract with Vasco da Gama for one year.
