Career Summary

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed by the Philadelphia Union on Feb. 24, 2016. Re-signed on January 24, 2020.

Arguably the most electrifying player with the ball at his feet in MLS, the Brazilian veteran is a game-changer off the bench for his 1-v-1 ability and tendency to complete the final pass. Union coach Jim Curtin said he's not worked with a better attacking talent. 

INTERNATIONAL: Ilsinho made his debut for Brazil on March 27, 2007 in a friendly against Ghana, and was part of the 2008 Bronze medal squad at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

OUTSIDE MLS: In six total seasons at Shakhtar Donetsk (2008-10,'12-15), Ilsinho appeared in 176 games (22 goals, 19 assists) and earned five league titles, three Ukrainian Cup titles, three Ukrainian Super Cups and a UEFA Cup (2009). Ilsinho also claims 19 UEFA Champions League appearances, with two trips to the knockout round (2012-13, '14-15)
