There are 100 of them, less than that, you can’t be in the previous team. Taking a pencil and distributing 100 (goak) is one of our players. It’s a little hard, but it’s easy, “said the coach after the draw with Atletico-GO.

Another issue of the Colorado attack concerns gunners. Near the middle of the calendar, In 2022 the team’s top scorers have only three goals. The roster has six players: Edenilson, Rodrigo Dourado, Mauricio, Taison, Wanderson and Alemão.

The low attacking efficiency results in a lack of conviction to secure the coach’s starting striker. Four players have already played the role. Wesley Moraes, hired heavily, started the year as the owner of the position. He was the one who played the most, with 11 starts.

However, with just two goals in the season, the 9th jersey lost its place. In fact, the management is already considering returning to Aston Villa from England and has put Leandro Damião, Abel Hernández and Brenner on the radar in the second half.

David It has often been cited as a reference in the attack, despite its cutting edge characteristics. In nine games, he was the first striker.

Alexandre Alemão he had four consecutive games in the team and experienced a scoring moment. He scored three goals in a row this season. After that, once vacated, he returned to the reserve, was injured, but the owner can recover.

Already Matheus Cadorini He had his first chance with Mano at the start of the duel against Atlético-GO last Monday. However, he helped little and replaced him during the break. As a starter, the youngster adds four games.
