Santos Win Copa do Brasil

August 5, 2010

L to R: Andre, Neymar, Paulo Ganso and Robinho: jogo bonito!

The ‘Santastic’ Santos do it again – in style!

Despite a 2 x 1 loss to Vitoria tonight, in the 2nd leg of the final match of the Brazilian Cup, the Vila Belmiro boys came out victorious due to a 3 x 2 aggregate score.

Sadly, that was the last we will ever see of the ‘fantastic four” Andre, Robinho, Ganso and Neymar together at Santos. Robinho will leave for Manchester this week, rejoining Man City, and Andre has been Ukraine-bound since June, set to join FC Dynamo Kyiv as soon as he’s done celebrating tonight’s glory!

BUT…here’s the catch, this is not the last we’ll ever see of these four ‘santastic’ boys. In 6 days they’ll come together again, and they’ll all be wearing golden jerseys…

Brazil’s new manager, Mano Menezes, has selected them for his Seleção, as he intends to use their Santos chemistry as the foundation for a new Brazil that – unlike Dunga’s – will hold an attacking mentality and bring sexy back to the Canarinhos – starting on August 10th, at a friendlty match against the USA in New Jersey!

Expect to see at least three of these great players at the World Cup in four years. Mark my sweet words…
