Andre Gomes Scores First Senior Benfica Goal

Andre Gomes

It was a night to remember for young Andre Gomes. On his first competitive match for Benfica, he scored the fourth and final goal, as the team swept away Freamunde in the Taca de Portugal. Gomes was substituted on in the second hald for the ever-lively Salvio, and certainly exceeded expectations. Currently splitting time between Benfica’s first team and the B team, this was the first chance Andre Gomes had at playing time for Benfica. The midfielder expertly chested down a chipped pass and shot with ease past the opposition goalkeeper.

Fun fact of the day: The goal that Andre Gomes scored for Benfica today was the first goal that a Portuguese player has scored for Benfica in seven months. Interesting, eh?
