The captain secured the three points at Vila das Aves and also ensured a return to victory for the lions.
Jorge Silas made his debut in Sporting’s coaching command with a tangential victory in a visit to Desportivo das Aves (1-0) in a match held on Monday that closed the 7th round of the I Liga. A goal from Bruno Fernandes, scored by a penalty, earned the triumph for the lions who thus returned to winning ways after five poor games for fans.
The result, however, turned out to be better than showing off what happened last night. Sporting de Silas changed the tactical system to a 4x4x2 and Sporting players found it difficult to start the game from the first minute to the last minute.
There were moments, of course, of greater attunement, but there were so many of total lack of rapport among the various players who only arrived last summer at Alvalade.
In addition, the way Birds performed also made it difficult for Silas lions to work. Augusto Inácio’s side, who are still in last place, performed at a good level, especially in the way they managed to defend and closed the way to the opposing midfielders, thus preventing Bruno Fernandes from catching the Leon game.
The Sporting captain starred in a pale display, far from what football fans used to, but did not shudder to take on the responsibility of advancing to the penalty spot seven minutes from the final whistle. Bruno Fernandes advanced, inhaled, expired and … scored. But there are more highlights to keep in mind.
