In the States, they say Soccer Team, in Europe if you say football they will know what you are talking about!;) The game was not at Maracanã Stadium...It was quite far from the city centre, in a Stadium called PORTUGUESA.

I remember we won, something quite rare as Botafogo is not so good in our national championship, now the whole country is stopped due to the World Cup.

But once you belong to a team here, you will end up with this team..We are very faithful to our football teams.
