After the match, coach Abel Braga and the players praised the atmosphere he created, but for one of them it was even more special: Fabio. Former goalkeeper Vasco is back playing a game in Sao Januario with the fans after 18 years. He saw the atmosphere in the stadium as one of the origins of the three-color classification:
– The weather was exciting. An environment like this is basic, with this support that started even before the match, when we got to the stadium. This atmosphere made the stadium come alive, and they (the fans) helped us a lot in achieving our goal which was qualifying. And the team responded on the field with such force that came from the stands – this was stated in an interview with the club’s official website.
Fabio He played 150 matches in Vasco between 2000 and 2004, and in the last game in São Januaro he did not concede: that was in the 3-0 win over Atlético MG on August 19, 2004. The goalkeeper returned to the field at other times defending Cruzeiro , but without controlling the field anymore.
