Today, 12 June 2013, palmeirenses all over the world celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 1993 São Paulo Cup title, which ended an almost 17 years long streak without a title – the longest period in the club’s history. For many – in fact for a whole generation – that title meant everything. Grown up men and women who had never commemorated a championship title could finally take to the streets and let out the roar:
The starting eleven was composed of Sérgio; Mazinho, Antonio Carlos, Tonhão, Roberto Carlos; César Sampaio, Daniel, Zinho; Edmundo, Edílson and Evair. Toward the end, Alexandre Rosa and Jean Carlo also came on. These, together with coach Luxemburgo, were the responsible for trashing Corinthinas 4-0 on that glorious night at the Murumbi stadium before 104.401 paying spectators.
The campaign consisted of 38 games with 26 victories, 6 draws and 6 losses. A total of 72 goals scored.
