Jefferson Career

Club career

Jefferson, who was born in So Vicente, S.o., was an amateur sprinter before joining Ferroviária's youth team in 1995, aged 12. At the time, he was a forward, but he was soon converted to goalkeeper in the process.

After a fruitful trial period, Jefferson joined Cruzeiro in 1997. Luiz Felipe Scolari called him up to the first team three years ago.

After making a string of high-profile mistakes at Cruzeiro, he was loaned to Botafogo in the same division in 2003.

Jefferson joined Trabzonspor in a four-year contract as a replacement for Australian goalkeeper Michael Petkovic in the summer of 2005. On June 8, he made his international debut against Kayserispor, beginning with a 2–1 home win over the Turks.

He went to Konyaspor in the same division after three years with Trabzonspor, but did not manage to avoid relegation in his first season.

Jefferson moved to Botafogo on August 25, 2009, on a free transfer. On September 13th, he made his second appearance for the club, keeping a clean sheet in a home draw against city rivals Fluminense.

Jefferson appeared in further 14 games this season, as Botafogo barely escaped relegation. He saved a penalty from Adriano, who won his team's championship of Campeonato Carioca on April 18, 2010.

Jefferson signed a labor contract extension on June 28, 2011 extending through to the end of 2014. He was also named the best goalkeeper of the year.

International career

Jefferson was a starter for the Brazil under-20 team, which became world champions in 2003 in the United Arab Emirates. He was called up to the main squad of Copa América in July 2011 and served as a back-up to Jlio César, who appeared in all matches.

He made his first international appearance with the Argentina team in 2010's Superclásico de las Américas, starting in a 0–0 draw at Argentina. Jefferson also started in the second leg, a 2–0 home Heyer.

Jefferson was selected to the 23-man squad for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, both on home soil, with Brazil winning the Confederations Cup and qualifying in the semi-finals. Jefferson won by 2–0 over Argentina in the 2014 Superclásico de las Américas in Beijing, saving Lionel Messi's penalty. He was Brazil's starting goalkeeper at the 2015 Copa América, scoring every minute until they advanced to the quarterfinals, losing in a penalty shootout against Paraguay.
