To publicize the match between legends from Corinthians and Real Madrid played this Friday (1), the Spanish club’s Portuguese profile published an art with the symbol of Corinthians Cabeçuda, an amateur team from Laguna, in the city of Santa Catarina. The publication yielded many jokes from Alvinegro’s rivals, pointing out that the Itaquera team is not known outside Brazil.
Real maintained the publication for hours, even with Brazilians filling the publication’s comments with memes and criticism of the club. Anyway, this Tuesday (29), the profile deleted the post and still hasn’t published any reference to the friendly match between the teams. See some of the mockery of rivals to Alvinegro.
LOL NOBODY KNOWS CORINTHIANS, HEAD IS FUCK!!!!

Corinthians Cabeçuda had already been on the agenda before
This was not the first time that Corinthians Cabeçuda de Santa Catarina entered the life of Alvinegro from São Paulo. In 2018, Colo-Colo, upon learning that it would face the Itaquera team, published an art of the confrontation with the symbol of the namesake from Santa Catarina. Hours later, the Chilean team corrected the post.
That same year, Cabeçuda appeared again. This time, the player Du Queiroz published an art of the confrontation between Corinthians and Liverpool, from Uruguay, for Libertadores. Again, instead of the shield of the Paulistas, it was actually the one of the Laguna team.
Du Queiroz posted the art of Liverpool-URU x Corinthians and missed the club’s own crest.
The player ended up putting on the shield of Corinthians Cabeçuda, an amateur club that no longer exists.
Upon realizing the error, the steering wheel corrected the publication.

Remember the trajectory of Corinthians in the 2000 World Cup
Officially, the 2000 edition of the Club World Cup is the first organized by football’s highest body, FIFA. This competition had an unprecedented format, with two groups of four teams each. Alvinegro led Group A, just ahead of Real Madrid on goal difference, as both won their duels against Al Nassr and Raja Casablanca.
When Brazilians and Spaniards faced each other in this first phase, the match ended in a 2-2 draw with goals scored by Anelka and Edilson, both twice.
Corinthians’ first position gave them a place in the final, against Vasco. The teams were at zero in the normal time of the big decision. On penalties, goalkeepers Helton and Dida took a penalty kick each from Marcelinho Carioca and Gilberto, respectively. However, it was Timão’s day to take his first World Cup at the temple of football, Maracanã, when Edmundo missed the last penalty.
In 2012, after winning the Libertadores for the first time in its history, Alvinegro was twice world champion by overcoming Al-Ahly, from Egypt, in the semifinals, and Chelsea, from England, in the big decision, both victories by 1 x 0.
