CAN THEY DO IT? CAN THEY WIN?
After mixed preseason and busy transfer window squad is finally ready to start. Young Sporting B player has been promoted to Sporting CP, age only 19, Guilherme Schettine shows a lot of promise. Lucho Gonzalez joined Sporting on a free transfer, he will bring experience and sureness to the squad. Gonzalez is 34 years old but his natural fitness is at good level, he also accepted to be only a backup, for sure he will be able to come on and replace injured or tired players. Sporting will play 4 competitions this year. It was same start as last year, a green start. Here you can see the results.
VIT.GUIMARAES 0 - 4 SPORTING ( Mane, Taarabt x2, Montero)
SPORTING 1 - 1 LIVERPOOL ( Eduardo )
SPORTING 2 - 4 PORTO ( Martins, Schettine)
LIVERPOOL 2 - 0 SPORTING
BRAGA 2 - 6 SPORTING (Montero x3, Gauld, Taarabt, Mario)
SPORTING 3 - 0 MARITIMO ( Taarabt, Montero x2)
Another unlucky draw in Champions League...Last year Sporting was part of hardest group now they face hardest team in qualifications, still, Mr.Silva said that this elimination was hard for him, players and fans and that there is no excuse. Lions were defeated at home by Porto but they played with almost 11 reserve players, they wanted Champions League that much...Here you can see groups for EURO Cup:
More is to come.
