Despite impressive performances, Nigeria’s young Portuguese top flight could not save the team from losing to the waves
Emmanuel Adeimo performed impressively but Vesella was sent off in the Portuguese League Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Estrella da Amdora on Saturday evening.
Although a midfielder, the 19-year-old was prepared for center defense – and he did not rule out a chance to shine against the Portuguese Second Division organization.
Led by an encounter at Estadio Jose Gomez, the hosts scored four games without losing their first season of friendship. For the Portuguese Elite Division organization, they helped Maritimo 1-0 after being out for the last time.
After intense opening minutes, Xavier Fernandez put Australia ahead in the 15th minute.
Taking advantage of C ڈیte d’Ivoire’s Mohamed Idara defending Shamboluk – who failed in his attempt to stop Lendro Tipote from attacking, the midfielder scored the helpless goalkeeper Evo Goncalves on the ball past.
Despite numerous attempts at equality, Vesella’s attacking parasites were organized by an organized tricolor backline.
Adimo was replaced by 22-year-old Marcelo Villa of Brazil before the start of the last 45 minutes.
The youngster’s presence calmed his team’s backline as his side continued to push for Leveller.
Vesella’s persistence was compensated by the casino in the 66th minute. After being teased by Rafael Gozo, the Brazilian striker beat former goalkeeper Nono Hidalgo before blasting his markers – Matthias Dentas and Eduardo.
One minute before the whole time, Super Sub Palinho had another final word with the guilty Adra. Failing to cross C ڈیte d’Ivoire star Sergio Conceicao, the Portuguese star had an easy task getting into the net.
The remaining minutes were not enough for Vesella to return to the game and he sadly crashed at the first stop.
While Edara and Ghana’s Richard Ofury were in action from start to finish, Ghana’s expected Frances Kane was introduced for Nono Moreira in the 46th minute.
For the home team, Mali’s Mamadou Tora was in the parade for Rui Santos’ team from start to finish. Ugandan star Lobiga Adresa was dropped off for Fernandes at 10 minutes.
The former Triple 44 Academy star will be expected to face Sporting Lisbon in the league opener against Vesella Sporting Lisbon on August 6.
