Yannick Drafted In

Sporting forward Yannick Djalo has replaced the injured Varela ahead of Portugal’s upcoming Euro 2012 qualification match against Cyprus. Varela was injured while in duty for Porto, so Yannick was called up. Yannick has been in great form lately, scoring against Brondby in the Europa League, and more recently against Naval in the Liga Zon Sagres. More importantly, Yannick has grown incredibly as a player in the past year. “I was surprised by the call. [I] Was focused on my club and I honestly did not expect to be called,” said Djalo. When asked about the imminent Euro 2012 qualification campaign, Yannick replied simply and accurately: “We are still at an early stage, but Portugal is always forbidden to lose points.”
