Portugal Sub21 wins! Video goals Portugal 2-0 Cape Verde, 1st game in XIII Torneio Internacional da Madeira! March 24, 2009

The Portugal Sub21 team wins today! Portugal 2-0 Cape Verde, 1st game in XIII Torneio Internacional da Madeira! Matchday 1.

This is great news because I think Portugal is the strongest of the 3 teams in the tournament.

(O selecionador português de Sub-21,) coach Rui Caçador said:

About the missed penalty by Pereirinha and Rui Pedro-
"I have to highlight the situation I didn't linke and that will not happen again in the national team. The execution of the penalty wasn't a nice gesture. I hope that it won't be repeated. I want to apologize to the Cape Verde team that played with lots of dignity."

About the performance-
"I liked the competitive attitude of the team. The Cape Verde team was very defensive, well-structured, and most of their players play in Portugal."

About Wednesday's game against the national team of Madeira- "more difficulties."

Monica 08: Sp. Braga's Orland Sa' scored today and was in the starting lineup. Big difference from his club. At Sp. Braga he has come in the game within the last 15 minutes. Only in the game before the UEFA Cup he was in the startin glineup because the 'stars' were being rested for the 2nd leg game Braga -PSG.

Fábio Coentrão- was a substitute in the second half. He replaced Candeias in the 46th minute! Ended up scoring 20 minutes later!
