Ball – Quinta dos Lombos eliminates Sporting in the final of the League Cup (Futsal)

Quinta dos Lombos reached the final of the League Cup after eliminating favored Sporting on penalties (5-4, after 2-2 at the end of 40).

At the time of the decision, Zicky Té and Erick Mendonça missed the appropriate penalties and allowed the party of the Cascais line-up, which for the first time guaranteed a place in the final (it was already in the ‘socks’), where it awaits the winner from SC Braga-Benfica ( 21 hours).

Sporting got to a 2-0 lead at half-time – with goals from Solokov (7) and the unfortunate Rodrigueno (17) – but, in the second half, allowed Quinta dos Lombos to make a wonderful comeback, through Eddy. Accurate shots (22 minutes), in which Guitta was badly beaten and let the ball pass between his legs, and Henrique Vicente (30 minutes).

In the end, the Lions’ coach offered “congratulations to the Lumpus”, particularly for their behaviour. “They surprised us because we were not mentally prepared for their situation, and attacked every attempt as decisive. Nuno Dias said it is a game that we all have to think about and correct mistakes.

For his part, Jorge Montero, who renewed his contract this Friday with Quinta dos Lombos, seemed to be still on cloud nine: «This is brutal! This is a reward for the work of these players. We have always believed in this, and when we believe in it, we get closer to achieving it.”
