Personal lifeEdit

Douglas Baggio is named after Italian former footballer Roberto Baggio. In an interview, he explained the reason behind his name, commenting that his father, while watching the 1994 World Cup Final penalty shoot-out between Brazil and Italy, reportedly stated that if Italy's final penalty taker – Baggio – were to miss his kick, then he would name his son after him; Baggio kicked the ball over the bar, which resulted in Brazil winning the World Cup, and a year later, Douglas Baggio was born.[13]
