“This victory means a lot to us, I think we were at that stage where 2021 wasn't able to celebrate well, because of Covid-19, so this title comes in double dose and those who are Sporting fans don't feel it, that is an unusual energy. ”, said Herman Carneiro.

The Portuguese-Angolan computer engineer, who joined the party organized by the Núcleo do Sportinguista de Luanda, said he really believes in winning the second championship, if the team remains solid.

The Portuguese Francisco Lisboa, in Angola for 12 years, accompanied by his family, praised the “fantastic” atmosphere in honor of Sporting on the Island of Luanda, noting that his “Sporting blood” comes from his grandfather's generation.

“Sporting has been with me since my grandfather, who interestingly was a Sporting player in the 1940s, was a goalkeeper, and from then on it passed on to my grandmother, my mother and I now pass it on to my son and we came here see the game in this fantastic environment, by the sea”, he highlighted.

Sporting soon showed the possibility of regaining the Portuguese title, according to Eugénia das Neves, an Angolan fan, adding that since the beginning of the season they imagined they would be champions.

“I hope for more victories and we wish bi, tri and more”, she said with a radiant smile.

“Sporting is champion, three years later, and the people here show the dimension of Sporting that is beyond its borders, I did expect this victory in the championship, especially given the consistency that Sporting showed throughout the entire season and it could only end as champion”, he concluded.

The fans' joy at winning the title was sealed with the 28th triumph in the I League, thanks to substitute Paulinho's goal in the 81st minute.
