Brasil 4 – 1 Argentina

Brasil goleia Argentina e prova que é a melhor selecção do Mundo

Aos quinze minutos já o Brasil vencia por 2-0 com golos, aliás espectaculares, de Adriano e Cacá aos 11′ e 15′ respectivamente, resultado que se manteve até ao intervalo. Os argentinos não criavam perigo e na parte final do primeiro tempo mostravam desorientação com o árbitro a intervir e a mostrar vários amarelos, Sorin, Cambiasso e o mesmo Sorin a arriscar a expulsão por segundo amarelo.

Se um golo da Argentina poderia relançar o jogo o 3-0 que ocorreu aos 2′ da 2ª. parte resolveu o jogo. Cruzamento de Cicinho e Ronaldinho de primeira perto da marca de penalty a facturar. Lux (g. redes da Argentina) evita o 4-0 depois duma perda de bola inaceitável de Riquelme no meio-campo originando um contra-ataque de 4 contra 2. Finalmente o treinador da Argentina mexe na equipa fazendo entrar Pablo Aimar saindo Cambiasso aos 55′.O jogo estava aberto porque se a Argentina finalmente atacava, o Brasil não se remetia à defesa e as oportunidades sucediam-se. Um cruzamento longo da direita de Cicinho (grande exibição) proporcionou a Adriano um remate de cabeça sem hipóteses a fazer o 4-0 aos 62′

Aimar entrou bem e fez um grande golo de cabeça em voo depois duma boa jogada pela direita do ataque. Mais substituições de ambos os lados a Argentina agora afinalmente a obrigar Dida a trabalho mas o resultado não se alterou.

Vitória concludente do Brasil vincando uma superioridade inesperada e virando com juros o resultado de 1-3 que sofrera em Buenos Aires para a qualificação para o Campeonato do Mundo, há três semanas atrás, sem que a ausencia de Saviola possa justificar a diferença.

O árbitro esteve longe de estar perfeito: interrompeu várias vezes o jogo em benefício do infractor, podia ter exibido o 2º. amarelo a Sorin e também pareceu-nos haver um penalty não assinalado contra o Brasil na segunda parte.

Entretanto a Alemanha obteve o 3º. lugar ao derrotar o México por 4-3, no prolongamento, depois de 3-3 no final do tempo regular.

 

NOSTALGIA DEL PRIMER AMOR

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 6:57 am

Tu soledad de nieve reclinada,
virginal y sencilla, en mi memoria,
como agua fiel de fatigada noria
viene a regar mi voz enamorada.

¡Cómo recrea el alma sosegada
la penumbra y dulzor de aquella historia
con resplandores de tardía gloria
entre abejas y frutos constelada!

¡Oh, delicada llama, ardor primero
velado en llanto y celestial mirada,
par del trino, la fuente y la azucena!

Mírame combatido y prisionero
volver a tu ilusión breve y tronchada
como un temblor en la desierta arena.

Dionisio Ridruejo (n. 12 Oct 1912 Burgo de Osma; m. 29 Jun 1975 Madrid)

Um poema não cabe em si Junho 28, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 7:17 am

Nuvens e ventos, luar e ondas do mar
Chuva calma que me apazigua a alma,
Flores ternas que o sonho me agita,
Perturbante caminho não linear,
Filme que inventei e que nunca vi.
Palavras combinadas [quase] aleatoriamente
Bocados de tinta em papel de tantas formas
Um poema não cabe em si !
Matematica de soluções infinitas
Revela os sentimentos de quem não mente
Poeta não é quem escreve – é quem sente.

Pedro Proença o árbitro melhor classificado da época ! (???) Junho 27, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 5:13 pm
Este país não para de me surpreender! Já há alguns dias que foi conhecida a classificação dos árbitros mas só agora me proponho fazer alguns comentários, naturalmente subjectivos, porque pessoais. Se me perguntassem quem mereceria ser o primeiro classificado dos árbitros, sinceramente, não saberia responder. Mas se alguém me dissesse que poderia ser Pedro Proença, não deixaria de libertar uma sonora gargalhada.

Pois é, afinal não sei se devo rir se devo chorar! Foi mesmo Pedro Proença o melhor classificado, ou seja o primeiro na classificação – sim porque recuso terminantemente alguma vez chamar-lhe o melhor árbitro.

Depois dos disparates que esse senhor árbitro fez em dois jogos em jornadas consecutivas em altura de decisões cruciais do campeonato merecedores de só por si baixar de divisão, não percebo como é possível tal classificação.

Os jogos a que me refiro e com desenvolvimento oportuno neste blog foram o Penafiel-Benfica (quantos penalties é preciso haver para se marcar um a favor do Benfica? Três? Quatro? Pelo que se viu nesse jogo é preciso mais …) e o Guimarães-Boavista (outra exibição paupérrima com uma simulação de falta dum vimaranense a ser convertida numa expulsão deveras injusta do guarda-redes do Boavista, entre o muito mais que houve).

Gostava sem dúvida de perceber esta classificação. Foi primeiro porque em todos os outros jogos esteve impecável ou seja cinco estrelas e jogos maus todos tiveram?

Não… já sei … foi primeiro porque é adepto do Benfica!
