Rebirth of a Giant

Palmeiras 3-0 Vitória

South America Cup. After loosing the first leg to Vitória 2-0, Palmeiras needed a 3-0 result to avoid a penalty shootout. A goal scored by Vitória would mean that Palmeiras needed a total of four in order to qualify.

We saw football at its best. Synergy between coach, players and supporters idem; something not seen for quite some time. A perfect script, worthy of Marcos’ game #500 in Palmeiras’ jersey, all in true Felipão spirit.

I will spare you of any tactical analysis this time. Just enjoy the video and feel the goosebumps.

Tremble, all non-believers: you’ve witnessed the rebirth of a Giant.
