3 – Fortaleza, 14th round of Serie B, 2009

In third place is the goal that Alex Teixeira scored in the 2-1 victory over Fortaleza, in São Januário. The striker remembers that it was a complicated game, in which the crowd was already getting impatient with zero on the scoreboard. Until, at the end of the first half, he bet on the individual play and opened the count.

– The game was very difficult there in São Januário, the crowd was booing me, criticizing me. But I managed to score that beautiful goal – he narrates.

Vasco thrashed that game at Maracanã, a 4-0 with authority. Alex remembers like it was yesterday.

– My partner Ramonzinho gave the cross, I was able to anticipate the defender and head it – he says about his first goal in the game, before completing: – And the second was a counterattack that I took to the right and hit it cross.

Well, there are two goals. Which one did Alex choose? “Oh, the two of you are going (laughs)”, he replied.

The goal that guaranteed Vasco’s title in Serie B in 2009 is Alex Teixeira’s favorite. On the occasion, the potiguar team opened the scoring at Maracanã with Lúcio. Élton equalized for the hosts, and the match was heading towards a frustrating draw (which did not guarantee access mathematically) until Alex received it at the entrance of the area.

– In the final minutes, with the Maracanã full, I found that kick right in the corner. I managed to dribble the defender and kick in the corner – he recalls.
