With a well-established, solid team that even submitted to Banfield In his own court, Boca left a better image with kids than with his “headlines.” Not even Russo was on the bench, it was all for the love of the jersey and to lend a hand in a difficult moment. To think.
It was not the best context in which they had to go out on the court. But believe me, even though I’m not a Boca fan, I was glad to see how a group of kids represented their club at a difficult time. Away from the colors, without any chicanes: Boca’s youth were up to the task, defeated Banfield on their court and showed that they can play even better than the “professionals” of the squad led by Miguel Ángel Russo.
Sometimes football is unfair and names are imposed over skills. Until maybe Sebastián Battaglia is covered by a technician who no longer has ideas as before and who is questioned even after having won twice in a row in Argentine football. Michelangelo Russo could not give the fans the identity that felt this Saturday at Florencio Sola.
Few names were known, practically none. Boat and not much else. And the kids from Boca played, without fear and without fear, knowing that it was their great letter of introduction. They did not let Banfield advance, who arrived little and nothing at the Lastra arch. Even the goalkeeper had a great game! The few that reached him, he was able to contain them.
It is to think about this topic of the names, the professionals, the expensive contracts… Everything for what? If later a couple of kids come willing to leave everything and expose the shortcomings and comforts of eleven guys who already have their lives saved. The kids from Boca were pride not only for their club: they were also proud for all of Argentine football.
