During that same span, he recorded 100 goals in 344 matches over all competitions, placing him fourth all-time in Lyon history. Upon the completion of the 2005-06 season, Juninho was named Ligue 1 Player of the Year and was a three-time member of the Ligue 1 Team of the Year.

1995 – 2001: In his first stint with Brazil’s Vasco da Gama, Juninho claimed the Brazilian Championship in 1997 and 2000, along with the Copa Libertadores in 1998.
