“I missed this photo! Evolving game by game, congratulations to everyone for the great and deserved victory, not to mention that it could have been a rout, but it was worth it anyway!
The result marked the team’s first victory in this Nordestão and is worth the survival of Sport in the competition. The team has five points and is three behind ABC, first in Group B’s G-4.
Thiago Neves left the game without scoring goals, but he was the athlete with more submissions between both clubs: he risked five shots. Only defenders Thyere and Adryelson approach the number, each with three attempts.
The detail is that, despite this, the attacking midfielder ended up starring in a bizarre scene by slipping in the corner kick, in the 42nd minute of the first half. Adept at teasing, he toyed with the bid when talking about what would be the worst charge of his career.
“I don’t know if it was this one or against Atlético-MG in Mineirão, last year. What a horrible thing, just with myself! We won the game and that’s what counts. ”
At the time of the bid, Thiago Neves received the support and encouragement from Jair Ventura from the edge of the field. And the scene also yielded pranks by Sport fans with their rivals.
“Slipped in the tears of the tricolor” – said a fan.
What is certain is that, with the victory, the red-black team invaded the field in celebrations right after the final whistle. Coach Jair Ventura appeared as one of the most effusive on the pitch. On social networks, Thiago Neves also talked about the expectation of being able to share the moment of celebration with the fans on the field.
Due to the pandemic caused by Covid-19, Pernambuco has had no public in the stadiums for a year, since March 2020. The state has 349,231 infected and 12,175 deaths from the disease. Brazil alone has more than 300 thousand deaths due to the new coronavirus.
