Real Madrid superstar, Vinicius Junior, evoked nostalgia by donning Brazil's 1998 home jersey as he prepares for the 2024 Copa America, which begins on Thursday, June 20.

The 23-year-old, widely considered a top contender for the 2024 Ballon d'Or, is set to lead Brazil's charge to reclaim the title they lost to arch-rivals Argentina in the last edition.

According to Transfermarkt, he produced double figures in goals (24) and assists (11) last term, capping off a stellar campaign with success in La Liga and the Champions League last season.

Despite his remarkable club form, his international record tells a different story, with only three goals in 30 appearances for the Canarinha.

Nonetheless, the former Flamengo prodigy aims to improve this statistic at this year's Copa America, where he and his teammates will kick start the competition against Costa Rica on June 25, per GOAL.

Vini's Brazil will face Paraguay four days later before concluding their Group D fixtures against Colombia on July 7.

Before the tournament kicked off, Vinicius showed off his style game with a throwback Brazilian jersey.

In an Instagram post spotted by Sports Brief, the tricky winger struck a pose in what seemed to be a bathtub setting, sporting the iconic bright yellow shirt paired with denim jeans.

Completing his look, he accessorised with his trademark No.7 necklace and a vintage silver-looking watch.

Vinicius dazzles Mexico's Reyes with insane nutmeg

In a previous publication, Sports Brief reported that Vinicius Jr shone as Brazil triumphed over Mexico in a pre-Copa America friendly.

The Real Madrid sensation provided an assist as the Selecao clinched a late victory against El Tri in a match played in the early hours of Sunday, June 9.

During the game, the winger left Mexico's Israel Reyes sprawled on the ground after executing a nutmeg on the right back while attacking from the left flank.
