INFO: Russo is one of the great scorers in the history of Fluminense, having scored 154 goals in 249 games, averaging 0.62 goals per game (exactly what Roberto Dinamite would have achieved 4 decades later) between 1933 and 1944, one of highlights of the famous "Fla-Flu da Lagoa", in the final of the Carioca Championship of 1941, having won four Carioca championships, an Open Tournament and a Municipal Tournament by the Tricolor.
Still in 2006, he was Fluminense's second-leading scorer in Fla-Flus with 13 goals, losing only to Hercules, who scored 15 goals in the 1930s and 1940s.
Russo was regarded as a rare intelligence player, having among his fans none other than his club mate, Tim, who when he became coach was one of the greatest strategists in the history of Brazilian football, master of a whole generation of coaches .
It had a strong kick, and was a player of race and technique that did not admit to lose, the left tip Hercules defines Russian as one ''improved VAVÁ''.
He suffered a serious injury in 1938, having played no match for the Tricolor this year, having gone to Paris in order to recover and where he played for a small local club, the Cercle Athlétique, returning to Fluminense in 1940, time to become champion carioca, and managing to regain the old form.
In the Campeonato Carioca of 1941, it was part of the attack that made 106 goals, a feat never equaled in this tournament, having as companions the Argentine Rongo, Romeu Pellicciari, Tim and Hercules.
Tim was told that on the day of the Grandpa Classic on September 4, 1943, at the Estádio de Laranjeiras, Fluminense's Uruguayan Ondino Viera, at the time of the distribution of shirts and tasks to the players, asked Russo to mark the player Santamaría, an Argentine who played in Botafogo, which Russo refused, returning the shirt to the coach. Asked by Ondino Viera, Russo explained that his position in the field and his characteristics would not allow him to perform the role well, recommending that the coach climb Carlos Brant, who was a flyer and still knew how to attack. Overwhelmed by Russo's argument, Ondino preferred to let him go on the pitch and play as he believed would be best for him and for the tricolor. Result: Fluminense won from Botafogo by 5 to 3 and Russo scored three goals. Russo also played for the Brazilian selections (1 match in 1942) and Carioca.
