Estrela da Amadora wins José Gomes trophy after beating Petro de Luanda

Estrela da Amadora won this Sunday the second edition of the José Gomes Trophy by receiving and beating Angolan football champions Petro de Luanda, 3-0, in a match that served as a presentation of the team to the 'tricolor' fans. Also this Sunday, Estrela da Amadora announced Angolan international Kialonga Gaspar as a reinforcement.


Gustavo Henriques opened the scoring in the 23rd minute and, in the 27th minute, Paulinho led Estrela da Amadora to win 2-0 at half-time. Papalelé, at 90+2, sealed the result.

Even before the initial whistle of the referee from Setubal André Narciso, the 'tricolors' presented the players who currently make up the squad, one by one, especially Kialonga Gaspar, from Sagrada Esperança, who was officially announced as a reinforcement, the 19th to today.

Against the Angolan champions, Estrela da Amadora started the game better, with Ronald, in the seventh minute, and Rui Correia, in the 11th minute, trying their luck, however the ball did not hit the target.

More technical, Petro de Luanda suggested that if they wanted to press the accelerator, they could wreak havoc on the well-organized defense of Estrela da Amadora, but Sérgio Vieira's men were not afraid and, on 23 minutes, Gustavo Henriques opened the scoring, Ronald's pass.

The Luanda team was still reorganizing itself and Paulinho was already making it 2-0 for the amateur team, with a torn pass from central Miguel Lopes, from the defensive zone, who served the Portuguese striker, in the 27th minute.

In the second half, coach Alexandre Santos changed the team's outfit, took the opportunity to rotate the elements, even removed and returned to the field the full-back Pedro Bondo, but Estrela knew how to put ice in the game.

At the end, the Angolans started to grow in the match, with some players from the 'tricolors' showing signs of wear, as happened with Paulinho, in the 75th minute, who gave up a quick attack move to avoid contracting a muscle injury in his thigh. right.

Sérgio Vieira only changed the team in the 85th minute, when he put on the field Luan Capanni, Diogo Salomão and Papalelé, a player who would seal the result, at 90+2, with a 'sticky flight' beating goalkeeper Benny.

It should be noted that the Angolan Kialonga Gaspar - from Sagrada Esperança and who will reinforce Estrela da Amadora -, international on 15 occasions, is 25 years old and has an Angolan League (2020/21) and an Angola Supercup (2021/22) on his resume, conquered at the service of Sagrada Esperança, emblem that he represented in the last four seasons, becomes the 19th new face of the squad led by Sérgio Vieira.

Before that, goalkeepers Bruno Brígido (ex-Feirense), António Filipe (ex-Nacional) and Guilherme Fernandes (ex-Amora) arrived and defenders Hervertton Santos (ex-Sporting B), Erivaldo Almeida (ex-Grêmio Novorizontino, Brazil), Amir Feratovic (former Roma, Italy) Lucas Rafael (former Boa Esporte, Brazil), Jean Felipe (former Sporting Covilhã), Rui Correia (former Nacional), João Reis (former Varzim) and Shinga (former Youth of Évora).

Midfielders Sebastián Guzmán (ex-Once Caldas, Colombia) and Mário Balbúrdia (ex-1.º de Agosto) and forwards Gustavo Henrique (ex-Penafiel), Ronald (ex-Guarani, Brazil), Papalélé (ex-Montalegre) , Yuri Jonathan (ex-Capivariano, Brazil) and Luan Capanni (ex-AC Milan, Italy) complete the list of reinforcements.

It is expected that in the next few days Estrela da Amadora will announce more reinforcements for the midfield area, given that at the moment they only have three elements for that sector (Aloísio de Souza remains from last season). For now, Samuel Njoh and Miguel Pinto move to this sector, who played in the amateur under-23 team last season.

The official start of the season is scheduled for August 7, at 11:00 am, during the visit to Feirense's ground.
