Felipe Campanholi Martins, commonly known as Felipe (born 30 September 1990)[1] is a Brazilian footballer currently playing for New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer.

Career[edit]

Beginnings[edit]

After beginning his career with small clubs in Rio de Janeiro, Felipe signed with Italian club Padova in 2008. However, because of a minor heart defect, he was released.[2] After expressing an interest to play in England, Felipe had a successful trial with AFC Bournemouth which played in League One during the 2007-2008 season, and was offered a contract. Eddie Howe, then manager of Bournemouth said, "He's got great talent and great feet and can certainly cross a ball. I've taken a long-term view and you've got to look to the future".

Despite the strong interest from Bournemouth, Felipe opted to join FC Winterthur in Switzerland in January 2009.[3] His form with Winterthur brought Felipe to the attention of bigger Swiss clubs. At the end of the season, he joined FC Lugano and remained at the club for three seasons, scoring a total of seven goals in 50 games. In 2011, he was loaned out to FC Wohlen, where he tallied two goals in 15 games.

Felipe with Montreal in 2013

Montreal Impact[edit]

Felipe signed with expansion side Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer on 21 December 2011.[4] In his first season with Montreal he appeared in 30 league games scoring 4 goals and led the Impact with 10 assists. His first MLS goal came in a 2–0 victory over Sporting Kansas City on 5 May 2012. He would miss the final two matches of the season due to surgery for a sports related hernia.[5] Felipe had a solid 2013 season in which he appeared in 32 league matches scoring 5 goals and 8 assists. He helped the club capture the 2013 Canadian Championship scoring Montreal's first goal in a 2-2 draw against Vancouver Whitecaps on 29 May 2013.[6] Felipe made his CONCACAF Champions League debut in August and featured in three of Montreal's group stage matches. In September 2013, Felipe was listed 13th in the MLS' 24 under 24 series, which ranked the league's top young players.[7] Felipe continued his fine play for Montreal during the 2014 season as he appeared in 31 league matches scoring 3 goals and 6 assists. His goal in second half stoppage time of the second leg of the 2014 Canadian Championship final against Toronto FC at Stade Saputo on 4 June 2014 gave Montreal a 2-1 aggregate victory and a second consecutive Canadian Championship.[8] Felipe was a part of the Impact squad that made the 2015 CONCACAF Champions League Finals but only participated in the group stage as he was traded to the New York Red Bulls before the knock-out rounds.

New York Red Bulls[edit]

On 27 January 2015 it was announced that Felipe had been traded to New York Red Bulls along with the top spot in the allocation order from the Montreal Impact, in exchange for Eric Alexander, Ambroise Oyongo, and an international player spot.[9] Felipe reunited with his former Montreal manager, Jesse Marsch. The following day New York used the newly acquired top allocation ranking to sign midfielder Sacha Kljestan.[10] Felipe made his debut for New York on 8 March 2015 appearing as a starter in a 1-1 draw at Sporting Kansas City.[11] On 26 April 2015 Felipe scored his first goal for New York in a 1-1 draw against the LA Galaxy.[12] On 9 August 2015 Felipe scored his second goal of the season in a 2–0 derby victory over New York City FC.[13] On 20 September 2015 Felipe opened the scoring for New York with a 40-yard blast in a 2–0 victory over Portland Timbers.[14] Felipe finished the season playing in every game during the Red Bulls campaign, including 34 league matches, 3 Open Cup matches and 4 MLS Cup matches. His consistent play in the midfield with partners, Sacha Kljestan and Dax McCarty lead New York to their second Supporters' Shield in three years.[15]

On 19 March 2016, Felipe helped New York to a come from behind victory over Houston Dynamo, scoring the equalizing goal in the 78th minute on a strike from 20 yards out and netting the game winner on a free kick minutes later in the 4-3 victory.[16] Three days later, Felipe was named as the MLS Player of the Week for his performance.[17] On 29 April 2016, Felipe helped New York to a 4-0 victory against FC Dallas scoring his third goal of the season and providing an assist.[18] Felipe scored his fourth of the season on 13 July 2016 in a 2-0 victory over Orlando City SC.[19] Felipe was named to the CONCACAF Champions League round one team of the week for his performance against Antigua GFC on 3 August.[20]

International[edit]

Felipe has not represented Brazil, his country of birth, at any level. In September 2013, it was revealed that Felipe was considering representing Canada internationally. Felipe applied for permanent residency but had to wait to gain full citizenship before he could appear for the Canadian national team[21][22]
