Nottingham Forest handed a debut to central defender Murillo as they drew 1-1 with Brentford. The Brazilian was making his first appearance in English football since signing from Santos.

The Reds added the defender to the ranks during the summer transfer window. It was anticipated that he’d perhaps be one for the future but Steve Cooper decided to start him against Brentford.

Murillo already looks like being a hit with the Forest fans. Some statistics from Who Scored showcase that he played particularly well during the game and it’s exciting to see what else is to come.

After a nervy first few touches, the Reds starlet settled into the game. In the second half, it was a backs-to-the-wall job and Murillo will be better for the experience.

The defender made no fewer than 11 clearances during his 90 minutes on the pitch. He also won one tackle, one interception and made one very good block.
