Oscar dos Santos Emboaba Júnior, born 9 September 1991, known as Oscar, is a Brazilian footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Premier League club Chelsea and the Brazil national team.
Oscar began his career at São Paulo FC, where he won the Brazilian Serie A in 2008. In 2009, he went to court against the club due to irregularities in his contract. After a series of controversies he left for Internacional, where he spent the next three years of his career. His displays for club and country led to him signing for Premier League club Chelsea in 2012.
Oscar is a Brazil international and has represented his country at the under-20 level, at the 2012 London Olympics and at senior level. On 20 August 2011, Oscar scored three goals in the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup final win against Portugal, becoming the first player to score a hat-trick in the FIFA U-20 World Cup final. Oscar later described his performances at the tournament as being a "gateway to the senior side." He earned his first cap for the national team against Argentina. His first goal also came against Argentina in a 4–3 defeat in June 2012. In 2012, Oscar was ranked 37th in The Guardian's 100 Best Footballers.
His playing style and ability have drawn comparison to Brazil international Kaká and Germany international Mesut Özil. He is a very good crosser for Chelsea.
