Uefa Cup – Sporting ganha em Inglaterra Março 10, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 10:06 pm

Middlesbrough 2 – 3 Sporting

MIDDLESBROUGH – Schwarzer; Reiziger, Riggott, Southgate e Queudrue; Doriva; Parnaby, Zenden e Downing; Graham e Jimmy.

SPORTING – Ricardo; Rogério, Enakarhire, Hugo e Rui Jorge; Rochemback; Pedro Barbosa, João Moutinho e Hugo Viana; Douala e Liedson.

O Sporting teve o caminho aberto dos quartos de final mas decidiu andar para trás. É um facto. O Sporting conseguiu um bom resultado em Inglaterra mas depois de o resultado estar em 0-3 as substituições de Peseiro a dar uma ideia de descanso e erros defensivos ( o 2-3 resulta de um erro clamoroso de Ricardo) não permitiram anunciar desde já uma das equipas apuradas para os quartos de final.

O Sporting começou bem o jogo a trocar a bola no meio-campo adversário e os primeiros vinte minutos foram importantes para cortar qualquer eventual ímpeto inglês. Neste período dispôs de dois lances de perigo mal finalizados por Hugo Viana. A partir dos 20 minutos os ingleses equilibraram e tentaram atacar quase invariavelmente pela esquerda por Downing.

Na segunda parte o Middlesbrough fez duas substituições uma delas a do guarda-redes forçada por lesão. O Sporting entrou a marcar e o “score” era de 0-2 aos 52′. O primeiro golo resultou de um passe de Liedson para a desmarcação de Pedro Barbosa (em posição legal) e à entrada da área rematou junto ao poste esquerdo fazendo o 0-1. Poucos minutos depois o 0-2 por Liedson de cabeça depois de um cruzamento de Douala, na sequencia de uma jogada em que segundos antes este falhou o golo.

A partir daqui os ingleses baixaram apesar de Zenden ter tido um remate desperdiçado por cima da barra, quando podia fazer melhor.

O 3º golo do Sporting foi às prestações. Hugo Viana rematou de longe Schwarzer fez a defesa com as pernas, mas incompleta, Liedson pode marcar de recarga mas não o consegue, porém, finalmente no outro poste Douala só tem que empurrar a bola para a baliza deserta. Aqui toda a gente se convenceu que o jogo e até a eliminatória estava ganha. Os espectadores iam saindo, mas na nossa perspectiva um sinal errado transmitido do banco aos 77′ – as substituições de Pedro Barbosa e Liedson por Tello e Sá Pinto – deu um sinal para “descanso” que se converteu em excesso de confiança, na nossa opinião.

1-2 num grande golo de Job (em pontapé de bicicleta) e depois uma desconcentração tremenda de Ricardo que teve a bola nas mãos (mas em lance onde se recomendava socar a bola) perdeu-a em choque com um colega e o 2-3 estava feito por Riggott aos 86′.

Nos últimos minutos os ingleses ainda acreditaram que podiam chegar ao empate restando ao Sporting conservar a vitória.

O resultado é bom para o Sporting. Demonstrou que tem melhor equipa. Mas para quem esteve a ganhar por 0-3, 2-3 sabe a pouco! E não se pense que vai ser fácil. Repare-se que nestes oitavos de final nenhuma equipa que jogou em casa venceu!

Outros resultados:
Olympiakos 1 – 3 Newcastle
Shaktar 1- 3 Alkmaar
Partizan 1 – 1 CSKA Moscow
Austria 1 – 1 Real Zaragoza
Lille 0 – 1 Auxerre
Sevilla 0 – 0 Parma
Steaua – Villareal (adiado)
 

Qualidade de vida

Portugal é o 19º. país a nível mundial. Irlanda lidera.
A Unidade de Inteligência ( Economista Intelligence Unit) do “The Economist” elaborou um índice de qualidade de vida dos países baseado em factores tais como: o rendimento, a saúde, a liberdade, o desemprego, a vida familiar, o clima, a estabilidade política e a segurança, as igualdade dos sexos, a vida familiar e comunitária, a liberdade política. O resultado numa escala de um a dez coloca Portugal em 19º. lugar com 7,31 pontos. Confesso que à partida esperava uma posição pior. Factores como o clima, liberdade política, segurança e vida familiar e comunitária, contribuiram certamente para a nossa relativa boa posição à frente de Bélgica, França, Alemanha e Reino Unido. O “ranking” é o seguinte:

Índice de Qualidade de Vida
1. Irlanda 8,33 11. Singapura 7,72
2. Suiça 8,07 12. Finlandia 7,62
3. Noruega 8,05 13. Estados Unidos 7,62
4. Luxemburgo 8,02 14. Canadá 7,60
5. Suécia 7,94 15. N. Zelândia 7,44

8. Itália 7,81 18. Hong-Kong 7,35
9. Dinamarca 7,80 19. Portugal 7,31
10. Espanha 7,73 20. Áustria 7,27

Outros países: 25º. França 7,08 ; 26º Alemanha 7,05 ; 29º Reino Unido 6,92 ; 30ª Coreia do Sul 6,88 ; 32º México 6,77; 39º. Brasil 6,47 ; 40º. Argentina 6,47; 60ª. China 6,08; 80º Egipto 5,61; 92º. África do Sul 5,25; 105º. Rússia 4,80 ; 111º. Zimbabué 3,89.
