In the match against Bahia, on the fateful day of the boot that looked green, the 77th jersey played its first match at the start of the new coach in 11th place. The 0-0 draw did not have the ball in the net, but already gave signals that the striker could surrender under a new leadership In Timão, and in fact, he ended up.
In the next duel, against Sport, he was kept in the starting line-up and ended up failing. This was the second 2-1 win, which ended with a three-point win at the New Coimica Arena. Something similar happened in the next match, against Fluminense, when Joe scored a penalty kick that opened the scoring in the 1-1 draw, in Rio de Janeiro, to secure a point.
Against Sao Paulo, the derby ended 0-0 and Joe ended up losing for the second time in the series, but the fast didn’t last long. Last Saturday, against Internacional, he was responsible for Timon’s equalizing goal in the second half, leaving the score 1-1, in addition to securing at least one point for the team with the goal, reaching a milestone in Neo’s history, the Arena Harmony.
This is because the shirt number 77 reached his 27th goal on the field, which is equivalent to Romero in the historic artillery of Itakera, which Paraguay has led alone since 2018. The difference is that Joe reached the number in fewer games, in other words, he has… highest rate. In addition, if he maintains this good stage, the striker at the top will soon be isolated, still in Brazil.
Joe’s performance and delivery by the team earned coach Sylvinho acclaim in his post-match press conferences and as a result, he has been kept in the starting line-up and is increasingly re-establishing himself as the team’s “goal man” under the new coach. Next stop now is Chapecoense, next Thursday, at 9 p.m., at Arena Condá.
