O Corinthians Santa Fé, from Colombia, did not give a chance to take away the taste of the “three-time champion” of Libertadores Feminina. This Sunday, in Montevideo, Timão won 3-0, with goals from Adriana and Gabi Portilho, and cemented the hegemony of results and performance on the continent. And Adriana commented on the overcoming that she had to go through after suffering a racist insult last week.

Pointed out by Corinthians, the racist act occurred after Adriana scored, charging a penalty, the sixth goal of the Alvinegra victory over Nacional-URU – ended 8-0, with a fist gesture by Adriana, in protest accompanied by the rest of the Corinthians cast in demonstration.

– We feel very sad, because we work hard for this, a championship as important as the Libertadores… I think it’s a reflection for Conmebol to make the appropriate punishments for athletes, and for us to do our best on the field – commented Adriana, at a press conference given right after the title in Montevideo. And amended:

– It means a lot, since the beginning of the year we were choked with the Libertadores that we lost (it was in the semifinals in the 2020 edition), we came here to be champions… in fact, three-time champions. We worked a lot during these 21 days, going through an uncomfortable episode for me. Not just for me, but for everyone in the cast. We showed our determination and will on the field. That’s what makes us different.

Finally, Adriana also commented on the level of the tournament.

– I think it improved a lot the first time we played. The other teams evolved a lot, you can see, they weren’t as high as we did in the other Libertadores, there was a growth. We are sure that the games will get harder and harder and the level will go higher.
