The victory of Flamengo about Youth, 3-1 at Maracanã, had as one of the highlights Andreas Pereira, who commanded the midfield and scored a great free kick, breaking a club fast that had lasted 1221 days. The perfect shot generated a series of reactions from club mates, such as Arrascaeta, and even from international stars, such as Lukaku and Pogba.
– Good! Very good! But I’m still waiting for my shirts! – replied Paul Pogba, star of Manchester United, in a publication by Andreas Pereira.
The Belgian center forward Romelu Lukaku, who also played with Andreas Pereira at United, but now plays for Chelsea, was briefer, publishing a curse word in Portuguese followed by emojis of “little faces crying with laughter”: “*QP!!!”
Lucas Leiva, former Liverpool and Brazilian national team player and now Lazio player, Daniel James, of Leeds United, and Arrascaeta, who was out of the game against Juventude due to injury, were other athletes who reacted to the free kick.
