Teams: Milan-Sporting CP-USA-Mexico
Sporting 3 - P. Ferreira 0 - 2001/02 Portuguese League
This game could have easily been 6-0, but some near misses (JVP's header was shocking) prevented it. Jardel should have had goal number three, but it's easy to forget the man can't dribble to save his life even if it is just he and the goalie.
Other than that, not much to quibble about. JVP was brilliant again. Jardel had two nice opportunistic goals (No PKs, so F you naysayers
). Hugo Vianna is quickly becoming a midfield general. His passing continues to improve and it was nice to see him net his first goal.
The defense looked very solid, although those two headers could easily have been goals. I don't know if that was bad defense (the defenders were where they should have been) or simply some very strong air play by the P.F. players.
With Boavista also winning, this means the showdown coming up will be a monster. I can't wait.
