leo's new faces analysis ::

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!


  • 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.

  • 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.
