Brazilian football/soccer forward (second striker) who has played for Sete de Setembro since 2017.
Araujo played for Japanese side Gamba Osaka in 2005; his 33 league goals helped Gamba to the 2005 J1 League title. But 2005 was his last season in Japan. Araujo left for his homeland to sign for Cruzeiro. But 2 years later Araujo left for Qatar. He won the 2007/08 season top scorer award there.
Al-Gharafa, known as "Al-Fuhud" (The Cheetahs) were Qatar's champions for three years in a row. Araujo was a leading star in the team's success, leading the scorers list for the entire 2008 season. On 4 March 2008, after scoring against Al Khor, he matched Gabriel Batistuta's record of 25 goals in one season. He eventually ended the season as the league's top scorer with 27 goals, a record which still stands. He played alongside fellow Brazilian Juninho Pernambucano. He left in 2010 due to personal reasons, but in 2012 he stated he was interested in rejoining the club.
