Fantastic!! I love it when the big teams fall. Petro is big, of course, but Agosto is bigger and has the "hotter" players. I think the last time Petro beat Agosto was in December.

Of course Mingas had a great game, but who is Morais? I've never heard of him.

It looks like Luís Magalhães is not having an easy task. I think he thought that after becoming back-to-back Portuguese champion he could go to Angola and do the same :rolleyes: From what I gather 1º de Agosto are currently 4th in the league, something which with the all-star team they have (some of the best Cape Verdian, Angolan and Portuguese (Jordão) players) is totally unexpected imo.

Zlim will you provide us regular news on the Angolan league? If so let me know, a thread about it should be created.

Carlos Morais is from the new generation but is already one of the best angolan players...he was with angola team in the last african championship and played also in Japan 2006.
