Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas

Botafogo is a fallen giant of Brazilian football. Nowdays, when you talk about Brazilian clubs, everyone attempt to remember teams like Flamengo, Corinthians, Grêmio, São Paulo because of their recently wonderkids or big trophies. The last big trophy that Botafogo won was back in 1995 when they conquered the domestic league title, the "Série A". Since then, the only trophies we won were regional championship ones "Campeonato Carioca" Rio de Janeiro State Championship. The Botafogo golden era was in the 60s when we shared with Santos, most of players for the Brazilian National Team and every Botafogo x Santos match were like "El Classico" nowdays. Botafogo had Garrincha, one of the best players in Brazilian soccer history, only behind Pelé who was Santos player. My ambition with this save is not only to bring a big domestic trophy to Botafogo cabinet, it is to win the Copa Libertadores. Last season, got knocked out of Libertadores in Quarter-Finals losing to eventual champions and Fifa World Cup runners-up Grêmio. This season, the board expect top half in the league, fifth round in the domestic cup and Quarter Final in Sul-Americana.
