During his career, the 23-year-old has been tested in numerous positions. He primarily acts as a forward, but has had episodes on the sides and as one of the center midfielders.

Matheus Cunha is also representing Brazil. The current player Diego Simeone can boast of seven matches in the “Canarinhos” T-shirt.
