In the midst of uncertainty in some aspects of one of the kids’ football future, it’s great that the other Jogo received excellent news today. Let’s see if anything materializes. As the aphorism would say: “Stay tuned until then”. Good luck against Philly tomorrow Jogo.
The rainy, windy and cooler weather conditions did not alter the enjoyment of our first family outing watching you play with FC Porto. The game lived up to the expectations; a feisty away game against the team currently sitting in 2nd place: Famalicao. The game, the teams and especially you did not disappoint and we were glad we could witness it. FC Porto had the majority of the possession but in the end, the team who scores the goals wins. The end result was not the desired one (1-0 loss) but we move on, we learn, and we improve. Thanks for this opportunity to watch you Johan; the family could not be more proud of the young adult you are becoming….
We are happy to see members of the family footballing away with their respective teams. While Jogo scored again (called back due to offside) against the US U17 MNT in Florida (3rd consecutive game scoring), Johan had a good assist on the Porto scrimmage (due to FIFA international break) as well. To top the day off, the third Jogo III had a hat trick. Goals are a team effort and sometimes circumstantial but they are not abundant; celebrate them while you can. In the end, we are happy that you guys are enjoying “the beautiful game” as it’s meant to be played…..btw, one less day to reunite the family.
