Portuguese Abroad – 12/6


Overall, it was a very uninteresting two days for Portuguese football fans. There were some surprises, but there were also bitter disappointments…….Okay, maybe not bitter, but they were still disappointing. So anyway, here’s the reports of Portuguese players abroad from five of the top leagues in the world.

Spain

1. Sevilla 1-1 Valladolid – (this was one of the surprises) Pele played ALL NINETY MINUTES. Finally, he gets the playing time he deserves.

2. Xerez 0-2 Atletico Madrid – Simao started(no surprise), and played the whole match.
