Seedorf on target in Botafogo victory

Feb 8 2013, 1:50am CST | by

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 8 (IANS) Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Clarence Seedorf continued his prolific goal-scoring form as Botafogo rallied to defeat Resende 4-2 in Rio's Campeonato Carioca.

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 8 — Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Clarence Seedorf continued his prolific goal-scoring form as Botafogo rallied to defeat Resende 4-2 in Rio's Campeonato Carioca.

Resende led 2-0 late in the first half but goals from Seedorf, Marcio Azevedo, Cidinho and Sassa ensured victory for Botafogo at the Engenhao Stadium Thursday, reports Xinhua.

Seedorf, 36, has now scored four goals in his past two matches, having netted a hat-trick in his team's 3-1 win over Macae Sunday.

"We can't afford to start matches so slowly," said the former Dutch international, who is relishing the advanced playmaker role accorded to him by Botafogo coach Oswaldo de Oliveira.

"We responded well after conceding two early goals but we have to learn to start matches with more conviction," he added.

In Sao Paulo's Campeonato Paulista, Marcio Araujo and Henrique struck first-half goals as Palmeiras overcame Atletico Sorocaba at the Pacaembu Stadium.

Oct 21 2014 1:37pm CDT | Source: forzitalianfootball

AC Milan director Umberto Gandini feels Keisuke Honda’s recent performances are a result of an understanding with coach Filippo Inzaghi. The 28-year-old joined the Rossoneri in January this year, having been linked with a move to the side for a long period, when there was a high level of uncertainty around Clarence Seedorf. “He arrived at Milan after a long courtship which lasted for months,” Gandini told Milan Channel. “He had a great desire to join in the summer window but this didn’t happen ...

Oct 8 2014 8:50am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Much was expected of Keisuke Honda when he was brought over on a free transfer last January from CSKA Moscow to join AC Milan. After all, the Japanese international was one of the best players in the Russian Premier League, and he had showed on an international level how good he could be linking up with teammates and excelling as a set-piece specialist. Unfortunately, Honda wasn't able to acclimate to Serie A at all in his fir ...

Empoli vs. AC Milan: Winners and Losers from Serie a Match

Sep 23 2014 4:32pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

No one really understands AC Milan just yet. They have scored 10 goals in four Serie A games but they have also conceded eight. Both numbers are the highest in the league. What is certain is that Milan are exciting again. They play a sort of kamikaze football under coach Pippo Inzaghi, and the trend continued on Tuesday when they played and drew 2-2 with Empoli. Milan let in yet another goal off a set piece and Dani ...

Juventus travel to Milan on Saturday in what is already a top-of-the-table clash. The teams are joined by Roma as the only sides to have gleaned maximum points from the opening two rounds of Serie A. While the Bianconeri have seemingly sat atop the division without interruption for the last three years, it has been a very different story for the San Siro giants.
