With two goals, Hulk left the field as the highlight in the victory over Fluminense, which marked the reaction of Atlético-MG in the Brazilian Championship. But the Rooster had other important characters. One of them was decisive for the victory: Everson.
Minutes before Hulk opened the scoring, the goalkeeper made a save of great sporting and emotional weight for the team. A goal conceded at that moment could repeat the film of past games, in which Atlético had been playing well, but was down after having the net swung.
– My responsibility to defend Atlético is very big, even more in this phase that we have been living. We know that taking a goal, you lose a lot of confidence, that happened in the last game – said Everson.
“I was able to give my share of contribution, a ball face to face, reduce the angle of the attacker, make a defense and help our team. After five minutes, we opened the scoring with Hulk.”

“Let’s go Brasileirão! The biggest offer of games for a price that gives game. Sign the Premiere!”
The goalkeeper’s decisive intervention was mentioned in Cuca’s press conference. The coach spoke precisely of the rescue of Everson’s presence to save the team.
– At some point, they found this space. Then, Everson appeared, which has been around for so long, you know… Last year, he appeared so much.
Atlético is now looking to confirm the reaction in the Brazilian, since the team has the spot in Libertadores as a goal. Next Wednesday, at 21:30, Galo will face Santos in Vila Belmiro.
– Sometimes we don’t have to play better than our opponents, but win. Today we didn’t have that much volume, but we won. It’s been a long time since we won at home, a victory to continue our purpose, which is to take the club to Libertadores – said the goalkeeper.
