leo's new faces analysis :: zerozero.pt

Sporting’s last friendly match before the matches ended in a 1-1 draw, fifth of the pre-season, with Wolverhampton Wolves. As usual in recent weeks, Rubén Amorim did not make many changes and ended up choosing eleven closer to the one that should start the season next Sunday in Braga.

As always in preseason, zero zero analyzes the new faces of players from Primeira Liga teams when matches are televised or there is an opportunity to attend stadiums.

In addition, we also leave some points that were already known from the pre-season. However, in the game against Lobos de Bruno Lage, the obvious positive moment of the lions is … strengthening. As for the children, most of them were present at Team B’s friendly match against Torrince. Dario Essugo and Diego Callai have not left the bench, but watch out for Fatavu Issahak!

Reinforcements…

  • Franco Israel: When a goalkeeper misses a penalty, he cannot be blamed. However, the Uruguayan reinforcement due to Adan’s injury was the most expected from this match, and the impressions were not very positive. The lion reinforcements had good chances with the ball at their feet, but exposed some positioning errors and ended up with approaches that didn’t offer the necessary safety to start the season in the title. However, it should be noted that he was practically not called to intervene.
  • Hidemasa Morita: He was clearly the best on the field at Sporting. If he had already scored some points during the preseason, then an injury to Ugarte practically opened the doors to the Japanese eleven, which did not stop the ex-Santa Clara from looking for a place. Tense in pressing and full of desire to show the serve, he gave a lot to the game and showed good solutions to get out of the opponent’s pressure zones.
  • Francisco Trincao: In reuniting with the old team, the left-hander certainly wanted to prove that he could have shown more during his time in England, but the Portuguese’s 83 minutes fell short of expectations. Holding onto the ball too much, he lost virtually every shot played against Nuri and, despite a dangerous shot early in the second half, added too many wrong moves throughout the match.
  • Roshinha: 10 minutes if you count with compensation, and a clear idea that for now he is still a minor figure in this Sporting. As the lion’s play moved heavily to the right in the last stretch of the game (we’ll explain why), ex-Vitoria SC ended up with no direct intervention in the last minutes of the match. He was still eligible for a free kick, but it wasn’t particularly brilliant.

Child…

  • Fatawa Issahak: In the first televised game in which he played as a winger from the right pass, the Ghanaian showed his full potential. Physical ability, drive (turning a missed shot into a favorable moment for the lions) and a great willingness to show off, even ending up with a good shot on goal by José Sa. After several games, the winger has shown that it is the winger who can get off balance and that the Lions have a diamond of great talent to cut.

A BOLA - Benfica with an atypical pre-season but no Super Cup excuse (women's football)

It is on the field number 1 of the Benfica campus in Seixal that the official women’s national football season will begin this Wednesday at 17:30, when Benfica hosts Braga for the Super Cup.

This season, the top four players from the last BPI league will compete for the trophy, facing each other in a semi-final system, followed by the final scheduled for the 26th at 20:30 in Leiria.

Philippa Patao announced the match at the José Martins Vieira Stadium in Almada. “We can count on a prepared team or trying to do our best given the somewhat atypical pre-season we’ve had. Since we are at Benfica, there are no excuses, we have done everything possible to ensure that the entire squad is at the same level, in the same form. They did a great job, they were flawless,” praised the coach.

“We will fight and I am sure they will give a great answer in the first official competition. The main challenge for our players is to understand that they will have to adapt a lot more to the game, it depends a lot on their understanding of the game itself and the involvement that is going on. We will also do our job to convey as much information as possible. In the end, this is a good test of the adaptability they can have in the game,” he stressed.

Philippa Patao considers this semi-final to be “a good challenge and also a moment of growth”. “For our part, we should focus more on who we are, on our principles and dynamics, and then try to adapt that in the game. We are very focused on getting trophies, although we know that even in terms of timing it is not ideal, given that we have Champions League qualification ahead of us, but it is a great goal.

“We want to win everything, so we have to do everything to win. We usually tell these players that if they want to win and be happy for Benfica, they will have to fight for Benfica on the pitch as well. That’s where we need our biggest strength, the fans who are sure to give us another push when needed. I know that game time is not attractive, but I am sure that these girls deserve it,” she assured with conviction.

A BOLA - Esgayo support wave (Sporting)

Ricardo Esgayo has become the main target of criticism from Sporting fans, who even before the end of the game with Braga (3: 3) invaded the right-back’s social networks.

Criticism aside, it was the insults, posted even on personal photos, that prompted the defender to deactivate his Instagram account and later Facebook, the social network that yesterday hosted Núcleo do Sporting da Nazaré, Ricardo’s birthplace. Esgayo joined the wave of support for the athlete.

“We are with you! We know that in good times and bad, no one wants everything to go well, more than you. like Mr. [Rúben] Amorim, we believe in you. We support all our athletes at all times, in wins, losses and draws. The strength of Ricardo Esgayo, keep working and believing! Sporting fans from Nazaré and Núcleo Sporting Clube de Portugal da Nazaré are with you,” wrote Núcleo.

In addition to Núcleo, Ugarte also responded to criticism of Esgayo on the social network Twitter. “How easy it is to criticize without showing your face. How easy it is to hide behind an anonymous account. At least have the courage to use your account,” the Uruguayan midfielder wrote, and even Thiago Thomas, who is now at Stuttgart, reacted to the episode: “2022 and they still think it is.”
