Vasco wins II Copa Brasil

The current champions of the Mundialito de Clubes grab the cup in Manaus after beating Sampaio Correia in the final


Vasco da Gama is building a very prestigious name in Beach Soccer. The ‘Gigante da Colina’, proud winners of the I Mundialito de Clubes, beat yesterday Sampaio Correia to claim the cup in the II Copa Brasil, held in Manaus (Amazonia, Brazil). More than 18.000 spectators sat the final facing the ‘Vascaínos’ and surprising Sampaio Correia, the only team who had lost no single game during the whole competition. Two goals by Mauricinho, awarded as the tournament’s MVP and top scorer, together with Bruno Xavier’s, Rafinha’s and Bueno’s nets secured the gold for the carioca side in front of the ‘Nordestino’ side’s tinier booty (Daniel and Dinei).

In turn, Flamengo snatched the third place, after bending Cruzeiro in the 3rd/4th place final. The ‘Rubro-Negro’, surprised by Sampaio Correia in the semifinals after having achieved the first place in group A, even beating champions Vasco da Gama in last league stage match, could get even with the bad taste in their mouth, at least partially. Diego, Juninho and Moska’s hits were worth the bronze for Fla, whose crowd was one of the most spectacular in the Centro Cultural Povos da Amazônia.

Just as it was last year, the Copa Brasil was a huge party, with a crazy 30.000-people atmosphere, packed, colourful stands, a noisy crowd and, above everything, the irrefutable demonstration that beach soccer is much more than a sport: it is a strong feeling, something worth experiencing.

Together with Vasco da Gama and the sport, another of the unmistakable winners in the tournament was the village of Boca do Acre, who received two tons of non-perishable aliments in a initiative raised in order to help the affected of the overflow of the Rio Branco.
