As Marcos Braz said after winning the tetra of the Copa do Brasil, Thursday was dedicated to a lot of celebration by Flamengo players. And, in order for the athletes to rest a lot, the re-presentation of the cast was scheduled for an unusual time: 4:30 pm (GMT) this Friday.
The day’s festivities started with a barbecue in a place next to Ninho do Urubu.

After an exhausting victory on penalties with players substituted due to physical problems, cases of Thiago Maia, Pedro (stomach upset), Arrascaeta and Vidal, the squad will work in the CT in the afternoon and travel to Belo Horizonte only at 22:30 (Brasília time) .
Flamengo takes on América-MG this Saturday, at Independência, in Minas Gerais, at 19:00 (Brasília time), for the 33rd round of the Brazilian Championship. As he did against Cuiabá in the last round, Dorival will send to the field a team made up mostly of reserves.
The related list has not yet been defined, but all line holders should be spared the trip once again. Recovered from a left ankle injury, Erick Pulgar has a chance to return to the team.
Team B starter Vidal, who sprained both ankles, will not travel. Other immediate bookings can also be spared.
