Thiago Moraes, Boavista striker and winger, decided on Sunday evening to qualify for the group stage of the League Cup, and scored the two goals in the 2-0 victory over Portimonense, at the Besa stadium. The athlete became the youngest player to score in checkers: 17 years and ten months.
When the audience returned to the tiger’s house, Thiago Moraes opened the book of an unforgettable night in the eighth minute, when he turned Youssoufa’s cross to the far post. Algarve goalkeeper Samuel is still protesting that he wasn’t a goal after defending, but the ball had already completely crossed the goal line.
In the second half, Thiago Moraes, who also played with Arcosello and Benfica, doubled the dose in the final 2-0 in the 73rd minute, after Hamachi’s cross that still hit one of the opponents.
In a match where Boavista coach, Joao Pedro Sousa, had only 17 players on the match sheet – many of them youngsters from home – Porto scored another win after succeeding in Madeira against Maritimo, in the first round, to continue in evidence in the League Cup.
Thus, the chess team closes the group of 12 qualifying for the group stage. Sp. Covilhã, Rio Ave and Penafiel (all those from League Two), as well as Paços de Ferreira, Famalicão, Santa Clara and V. Guimarães (those from I League coming from this second round), join Sp. Braga, Benfica, FC Porto and Sporting, who only enter the groups.
