      Daniel, you are the one who did not see Lucas playing lately, he is improcved and had very vgood performance lately, was a key player against Chelsea and other games under Kenny, Anderson willl sit on the bench, but Lucas had very good games in Brazil until now, that is why Mano keep calling him and put him in the opening 11, with the important shirt no. 5. Didnwt you hear it? “pass and move, Lucas is groove”

    Nice to see Hulk in the line-up!!

    I see Mano has avoided calling up any domestic players as the state championships are under way…at least I hope so because I don`t see Victor anywhere
