A professional football player from Brazil, Luiz Philipe Lima de Oliveira, also known as Muralha, plays as a midfielder. The highly-rated youngster made his presence known while playing for the Vasco da Gama youth academy in 2008. Over the next two years, he rose to the top and was a prime contender to break into the first team when Flamengo came calling for his signature.
From 2010 to 2012, Muralha spent his time playing for the Flamengo youth academy although he was called up to make his debut for the first team in 2011. In 2010, Muralha won the Campeonato Carioca title in the youth division while in 2011, he helped the team win the Copa Sao Paulo de Futebol Junior title. That same year, he would play 13 games in the league, for Flamengo, and was also a part of the Rio de Janeiro State League winning team.
The 2011 Taca Rio and Taca Guanabara winning teams also had Muralha in them but he never made any appearances for the team on the pitch. Extremely talented, Muralha was also part of the Brazilian Under-18 squad that went on to win the 2011 Copa Internacional do Mediterraneo.
