Benfica contrata o russo Kariaka Junho 16, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 9:34 pm
Andrei Kariaka jogador do modesto clube Krylia Sowjetow Samara, centrocampista e esquerdino, é a nova contratação do Benfica, apesar de ainda não estar “o preto no branco”. Internacional russo por 23 vezes marcou 5 golos pela selecção russa.

Nas últimos quatro épocas fez os seguintes jogos pela selecção:

2002 Russia – Centrocampista 1 jogo 1 golo
2003 Russia – Centrocampista 5 jogos 1 golo
2004 Russia – Centrocampista 5 jogos 1 golo
2005 Russia – Centrocampista 2 jogos 1 golo

Jogando em posição identica à de Simão Sabrosa a sua titularidade pode implicar a passagem de Simão para uma função de número 10, isto é de apoio ao ponta de lança, posição para a qual o Benfica tem manifestas carencias. Kariaka esteve em Portugal no Euro 2004 integrado na selecção da Rússia (jogou com o número 5 na camisola) que somou apenas uma vitória e logo frente à Grécia que curiosamente viria a ser Campeã da Europa.

Andrei Kariaka nasceu em 4 de Janeiro de 1978, tem 1,80 m de altura e 72 Kg de peso.

 

Não Sei se é Amor que Tens

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 3:57 am

Não sei se é amor que tens, ou amor que finges,
O que me dás. Dás-mo. Tanto me basta.
Já que o não sou por tempo,
Seja eu jovem por erro.
Pouco os deuses nos dão, e o pouco é falso.
Porém, se o dão, falso que seja, a dádiva
É verdadeira. Aceito,
Cerro olhos: é bastante.
Que mais quero?

Ricardo Reis (um dos heterónimos de Fernando Pessoa)
