Sporting leave out Stojković
Sunday 21 October 2007
in uefa.com


Sporting Clube de Portugal coach Paulo Bento has left goalkeeper Vladimir Stojković out of his 19-man travelling party for Tuesday's UEFA Champions League meeting with AS Roma in Italy.

Late return
Bento chose not to include Stojković, who had featured in Sporting's first two fixtures in Group F, having also excluded him from the squad for this weekend's Portuguese League Cup match against CD Fátima. That decision came in response to the Serbia keeper's late return from international duty last week. Stojković, 24, missed training on Friday and was duly omitted from the 2-1 home first-leg loss to second-division Fátima 24 hours later.

Long-serving
His place is expected to go to Tiago, the Lisbon club's longest-serving player, who deputised against Fátima. The 32-year-old's only previous appearance for Sporting in the UEFA Champions League group stage came as a substitute against AS Monaco in a 3-2 reverse in November 1997. More recently, he appeared in both legs of the third qualifying round defeat by FC Internazionale Milano in August 2002.

Duo passed fit
While Stojković is absent, defender Anderson Polga and midfielder Simon Vukčević have both been declared fit for the Matchday 3 encounter at the Stadio Olimpico while Portuguese Under-19 international midfielder Adrien Silva is the new face in Bento's list.

Tomorrow Paulo Bento will complete 2 years as main coach of Sporting and one of the strongest traits of his management has been the strong discipline that he uses to lead the squad. The chaos that submerged our club until very recently doesn't seem to fit at all with the character of our coach which is why I think he is entirely right in punishing Stojkovic for his delay in returning from Serbia.

Apart from this detail we are facing tomorrow probably the most important game in what concerns our possibilities of qualifying for the next stage of this competition. If we manage to get any points from the Olimpico di Roma our prospects of grabbing the 2nd place in this group will start to become brighter.

Having said this I am not very optimistic mainly after the unconvincing way in which the team has been playing in most of this season but our opponents are also struggling and they have indeed much more to lose than ourselves in case of failure.

Here's the list of players called by Paulo Bento to this game:

Goalkeepers: Tiago and Rui Patrício.

Defenders: Abel, Tonel, Anderson Polga, Ronny, Gladstone and Had.

Midfielders: Miguel Veloso, João Moutinho, Vukcevic, Romagnoli, Adrien Silva, Paredes, Izmailov and Celsinho.

Forwards: Liedson, Yannick Djaló and Purovic.


Força SPORTING!!!

Great move by Paulo Bento to punish Stojkovic. You'd probably lose anyhow, so at least he's getting a message across.

If it wasn't for Stojkovic's indecision (with a little help from your friend Proenca, claro) we wouldn't have lost against the backtobackchampionsyaaaaaawn early this season so it might be that this came as a good omen.

Logic? Since when football and logic have anything to do with each other?

Face it mate, Dynamo Kiev is a bag of crap and a cynical game by an average Sporting was good enough to beat you in your own bathtub. I am not expecting us to reach the next stage of the CL but I am certain that until now Sporting have done better so far than any of the mediocre teams that you support.

Anderson Polga is not fit for the game in Rome. Don't know if he got injured in the warm up or something but the truth is he is not even on the bench...anyway, screw it, let's get on with it!


Tiago
Abel - Tonel - Miguel Veloso - Ronny
João Moutinho
Izmailov - Vukcevic
Romagnoli
Liedson - Yannick Djaló

SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORTING!!!!!

Tiago being himself and 0-1 from a corner after 15'. A shame because Sporting didn't even start badly.
