He was an translator/coach for Bobby Robson in Sporting, and then Porto and when Robson moved to Barcelona he took Mourinho with him and then stayed there when Van Gaal came in, that's where he coached Puyol (and Guardiola when he was a player there too). I thought this was common knowledge.

The speed and ferocity of the slap was executed to perfection. Not quite hard enough to be a clear cut aggressive gesture but too hard to be a completely friendly slap. He just wanted to confuse and piss off Puyol to get in his head a bit. Mission Accomplished

It was all staged and planed... this is just a publicity strategy from a team that owns exclusive rights from home matches.

So probably the young brother was always behind the opposite team goal. Also the reporter was ready in case the goal happen.

No draft! European soccer runs on a free market model of transfers where the highest bidders get whatever they want. Kids as young as 6-7 can join academies for clubs in their country, while you have to wait until 15 or 16 to move to another country to join a foreign academy I believe, for example there is a young Swedish super talent aged 14 who announced he wants to join the academy at Chelsea FC, one of the top youth academies in the world, but has to wait until next year to do so. Every pro team has a youth academy accommodating teams from ages 6 to 23. They actually had a international final for u8 teams (8 and under) that was won by Luton Town, who are a very low profile and small team in England

My team (Borussia Dortmund) gave Christian Pulisic his senior team debut at 16. Our current youth star Jadon Sancho just turned 19 a few months back and he has the most assists in Europe, on top of Messi, Erickson or Hazard. Has 10 goals too to boot.

We also have Moukoko who is tearing up the u-17s as a 14 year old. 21 games and he has 36 goals and 7 assists. Players are identified and trained from a very young age.

But then you have players like Carlos Bacca or Jamie Vardy who are identified in their 20s and go on to start for big teams. At 20, an age most players are starting to break into the first team, Bacca was working several part time jobs including driving a bus and selling fish in Colombia in order to support his family.

As someone who knows both realities too well, I prefer the American system. It's far more interesting if you don't have the top two teams winning every year. I am a Benfica fan but, I hate the fact that smaller teams virtually have no chance in winning the league because Benfica and Porto have the most money to get the best players.

The same happens on a larger scale, Real Madrid has far more money than Benfica. So, they and other clubs in the top 10 buyout Benfica stars every year. Joao Felix, the kid in this video, is rumored to leave for an astronomical amount.

the tune is very popular all over Europe when a team scores or wins a game.

It became popular back in Belgium when Club Brugge played AC Milan in 2004, Brugge fans were drinking before the game and heard the song on the radio, they started singing it in the streets before the game and when they scored the winner, it became a popular tune in Belgium for football clubs. fast forward to 2006 when Roma played against Brugge and won, the Roma fans started chanting the song and it became known as the “Po Po Po” song in Italy, later on in summer 2006 Italy won the world cup and the song was sang all over Rome, ever since that day the song is played in stadiums before games and when a team scores.

It was [3]-1 with this goal, his 1st of the night after 2 assists. 4 days ago he scored an hatrick in the Europa League (youngest player ever). Result wise not very important (even though it gave them breathing room for an eventual tie) but for a 19 year old kid every goal he gets to score in front of 55000 home fans is a pretty big deal.

56.463 according to official numbers. The stadium was sold out that day, since Benfica are in the final 6 games of a very very close championship (Benfica and Porto share the same points with just 5 games remaining, Benfica having the lead since they beat Porto twice on the league. Both teams are still in the European competitions, Champions League for Porto and Europa League for Benfica, and Porto is on the Cup final).

Benfica's old stadium actually did fit 135.000 people, but that was before safety regulations were a serious thing.

I've been on that stadium many times. People aren't bunched up together against each other, people are spaced out enough. I have good memories in that thing, I saw Ronaldo and Kaka play there and witness Benfica win a championship there. Really awesome if you're a football fan.

There are couple rows of VIP boxes and it's relatively modern stadium so there's much more space.

Barcelona's home, Camp Nou houses 100 000 but certainly doesn't look like 2x the size of this. That's because it was revamped almost 40 years ago and It's cramped, very little VIP boxes and VIP seating. They are pretty much rebuilding Camp Nou in the next 3 years.

Looks like soccer needs to invest in the microphone dishes the nfl uses, otherwise you get piece of shits shoving mics in their face

Man he made that look easy. That ball was about six inches off the ground and he put it perfectly into the top corner.

All those hugs must feel absolutely amazing after doing something that you feel super proud to have done in the first place.

Beautiful moment and a perfect example of why I have problems with the sports media. It's so cutthroat that these brothers can't have a nice moment with out some asshole shoving a Mic and camera in their faces.
