But the biggest highlight of Pato's time with Internacional was during the Recopa Sudamericana, as he helped Internacional win their first ever title of that competition.On 2 August 2007, Pato signed with European champions Milan of the Italian Serie A. Pato scored his first Milan goal on his Serie A debut against Napoli in a 5–2 home victory on 13 January 2008. He helped Brazil win the 2007 South American Youth Championship, which qualified the country for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup, and was selected by Brazil coach Dunga for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Pato was selected for the Brazil Olympic Football team for London 2012 Olympics. He scored a header against Belarus at Old Trafford to make it 1–1.
