Eligibility Controversy

An inquiry held by the Prime Minister of East Timor in 2016 heard that Caio was one of seven Brazilian footballers to receive falsified baptism documents from Timor's Catholic Church, in order to make it appear he was eligible for Timorese nationality.

All seven players are based in Asia, but only one, Juninho, has played for Timor's controversial national side.

Caio received his Timorese passport in 2015, despite having no known means of eligibility, such as a family connection, or residency.

His Dubai-based club, Al Wasl, delayed playing him until his new passport arrived, therefore meaning he could be used as an Asian player, rather than an international player.
