Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), A Cidade Maravilhosa
Sagrada Esperanša (Angolan team)
How good are they, for African standards?
They played several friendlies/training matches in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil in January:
- Volta Redonda reserves 2-0 Sagrada Esperanša
- Vasco 4-0 Sagrada Esperanša
- Botafogo reserves 2-0 Sagrada Esperanša
- Flamengo reserves 3-0 Sagrada Esperanša
- Fluminense (1st half with 1st teamers, 2nd half with reserves) 3-1 Sagrada Esperanša
In these matches they looked like a very poor team, despite being the current Angolan champions.
