A BOLA – Three Portuguese in the best team of the season (England)



A BOLA - Three Portuguese in the best team of the season (England)

Ahead of the second round of the Premier League, the famous portal Target he decided to pick the one he thought was the best 11 of the season so far. Among the options are three Portuguese, all of them from Manchester City.

We are talking about defenders Ruben Diaz and João Canselo and attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva, who played a key role in an excellent season for Pep Guardiola’s side. Here is the rationale for the choice:

Reuben Diaz: “Last season’s top Premier League player kicked off the new season at a similar pace and flawless play, which largely contributed to Manchester City’s nine goals. He started in 16 of 18 league games and avoided Guardiola’s rotation at center-back. The statistics are not impressive, but they are just a reflection of the team’s possession. “

Joao Canselo: “It’s impossible to resist this season. In the absence of Kevin De Bruyne, the defender became a creative midfielder in midfield, being able to move freely around the field, distributing passes. None of the Premier League players have made more assists (1407) and have already made five assists. “

Bernardo Silva: “Seven goals in half a season is already the best result since he was at Manchester City. He is the best player in the Premier League without the name of Mohamed Salah. He is in a good mood and he is the one who unites the team, acting as the new Iniesta for Guardiola. “

Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal), Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool, Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea), Declan Rice (West Ham), Conor Gallagher (Crystal Palace), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Rafinha (Leeds) and Emmanuel Dennis (Watford) make up the rest of the team.

Futsal: Sporting beat Benfica again and became national champion



Futsal: Sporting beat Benfica again and became national champion

Sporting are two-time national futsal champions after beating Benfica 4-3 tonight in the third game of the championship final.

After winning two overtime wins in their first two games, the Lions took the field this Saturday knowing they could end the night. And the task, it must be said, was difficult, painful, but not so much that additional time was required … for very little.

At half-time, the team led by Nuno Dias had already had a hand in Kaneko as they won 3-0. In futsal, things can change from moment to moment, but this has not happened, despite the latest threat to the formation of Pulpis.


Goals from Pauleta, Cavinato and Cardinal were answered by goalkeeper André Sousa – with the help of Merlin’s precious deflection – with a cut to 3-1 early in the second period.

The Eagles had a new hope, which Ziki Te tried to cool shortly after, taking advantage of the rebound from the beautiful shot of Pani Varela.

But there was still a game.

Arthur returned to reduce for the Reds, twice, and the eagle returned to be in discussion in the title. So much so that Arthur himself hit the post at the last second, in a dramatic final that once again crowned the lion.

Sporting repeat the triumph of last season and win the 17th league title in history. This increases the difference with the rival Benfica, which has eight achievements in history.

O Benfica fought until the last attack of the game, until the (literally) last second of the derby to stay in contention for the national title, but the Irons proved to be an extra opponent and the Pulpis-led side lost a third time by close margin (4:3) against Sporting CP in the final Liga Placard play-offs in Pavilhão João Rocha with the definition of the champion.

With a couple of dangerous approaches to the goal under the protection of Guitta, the Benfica team was the first to record a goal in the derby.. Nevertheless, with common opportunities, as a result, the hosts moved the scoreboard in the 5th minute (1-0), in the conclusion of Pauleta on the transfer of Eric Mendonza, who, however, returning the ball, committed foul (unsigned) on Jacard.

Benfica had two great chances to force a draw in the 10th minute, but Arthurfirst and Afonso Jesusmissed the target on the second try.

In another match of noticeable intensity, Benfica brought back captain Robinho, but did not count on Nilsson (injured) and lost center Roche (right leg injury) in the middle of the first half… and agreed to 2-0 in the 13th minute (marked by Diego Cavinato) in the development of a set piece. At this point, the Sporting fans smashed the glass in the railing behind the Benfica bench and the game was interrupted for several minutes to repair the damage.

The resumption of the match gave Benfica another privileged opportunity: Arthur headed for the crossbar of Gitta’s goal in the 16th minute.after a punch from goalkeeper André Souza. In the 17th minute, the Eagles have another great chance: in the 10-meter free kick (punishing Sporting for the sixth foul), Arthur shot with his left foot and hit the iron!

Inefficiency (and misfortune) on the one hand, exploitation on the other. Cardinal ended the game in the penalty area without resistance in the 18th minute with a pass from Pauleta that caused an imbalance on the right. Break came from 3-0 not a marker.

Dissatisfied with Benfica, they kept the game in the second half.. Andre Souza entered the court for 25′, took a risk from the middle distance and pointed 3-1. Three minutes later Arthur once again bet on a powerful shot… and hit the post again.

The Benfica team insisted on a 3-2 score, but Sporting had both offensive arguments and 4-1 Ziki at 33′. Benfica reacted quickly, reducing the score to 4-2 thanks to a strike from Artur on the left flank (34′)..


Five minutes before the end, Benfica began to risk 5×4. In the first move in superiority, Romulo missed the ball in an excellent position. Repeating the strategy with each attack, Glorioso reduced the score to 4:3 in the 39th minute: Robinho broke through from the right, assisted, and Artur did not forgive in the penalty area.

20 seconds left Robinho was inches from his tie, and the shot came just a few meters from the square; in the last second after a corner from the right, Artur hit the post. Incredible trouble!

Thus, the last chance for a draw in the derby disappeared, and with the third defeat with a minimum margin in the Championship play-off final (5-4 after expansion, 3-4 after expansion and 4-3), Benfica saw the opportunity to continue discussing the trophy slip away.



Pulpis (Benfica coach): “The difference is in the details, the moments when we have to know how to suffer, others when we have to be lucky, because there were games in which we did not have enough luck. There were three very balanced games, we deserved to win. this final until the fourth game. In the three games played, the team proved worthy to win at least one victory. And here, in the first game, as in Luz, we deserved more. Today everything was different. We started well, the first five minutes were incredible on both sides, with a fantastic level of intensity, we had four very clear chances, and so did they. Then we conceded a goal that hurt us and we scored two more due to errors in concentration that we couldn’t” In the second half, the team didn’t give up, it was Benfica! We had many chances to equalize, we pressed a lot, in 5 on 4 we had a lot of chances and we deserved it before, but the ball should go in and it didn’t go in.”

Andre Souza (Benfica goalkeeper): “It is important to understand that doing everything is not enough, there are factors that we have to take into account that matter, and in this final, with such balanced games, they have always been on the same side. There is something to improve. , those who play for Benfica must understand that this cannot be, we must win, we have not won for a long time. None of us are happy with what happened. We want more!

The beginning of the second part!

Everyone is equal at the end of the first 25 minutes. In a game that was more intense than spectacular, there was a weak signal from Porto early on, which was confirmed by a goal from Gonçalo Alves. Thus, Benfica balanced and even reached a draw thanks to Carlos Nicolia. Number 5 of the Eagles after a direct free kick (after the tenth infringement committed by the Dragons) left Pavillán da Luz red-hot.

However, a few seconds later, Nuno Rezende’s team suffered a major setback, with Carlos Nicolia being sent off. After a draw with Reinaldo Garcia, for which two Argentines were punished with a blue card, Carlos Nicolia, already sitting on the bench, saw Miguel Guilherme, one of the match referees, quickly move to him and show him a red card. Without anything to make him predict, which leaves in the air the thought that Nicolia was exaggerating in relation to the judging panel…

This is, without a shadow of a doubt, (another) big loss for Benfica, who, remember, also lost Lucas Ordóñez to injury, and it remains to be seen how Nuno Resende will face the second part of the match. a game that, it should be noted, the Reds have to win in order to decide on the national title Negro.

The third match, held in the city of Invicta last Wednesday, smiled again blue and white, who won with a score of 9-6.

Benfica and Porto will meet again this Saturday afternoon (15:00) at Pavilha da Luz for the fourth play-off game of the final of the national roller hockey championship. In case of victory, the dragons celebrate the achievement of the title. If the Eagles win, then the draw will be decided only in Negro.
