In the final minutes of Fluminense’s 2-0 victory over Avaí, Sunday, at Maracanã, for the 13th round of the Brazilian Championship, Fernando Diniz burned his last three substitutions with Wellington, Pineida and Willian Bigode (Matheus Martins and Martinelli already had been released before) on the team. This situation somewhat frustrated the fans who were present at the stadium, as many would like to see Fred enter. One of the most demanded by the tricolors, Wellington was effusively defended by the coach. Now, the ge portal has raised the numbers of the steering wheel in comparison with its position competitors in the season. Check out:
