Santos’ absolute starter, defender Joaquim was thrilled with the goal scored in the 1-0 victory over Água Santa, on Wednesday night, at the 1º de Maio stadium, in São Bernardo do Campo, in the fourth round of the Campeonato Paulista . The move came from a corner kick by Felipe Jonathan.
– We know the responsibility of defending Santos’ mantle. We arrived at the stadium with rain, a soft field, interfering with our game. But, thank God, we fought hard and scored from a dead ball. We train a lot on this – said the defender, in an interview with Record.
