Everton Cibulinha is close to regaining freedom and joining the team. And the 25-year-old striker ended, on Sunday, a 14-day isolation that forced her to return from vacation in Brazil. He will therefore have the opportunity to train with the team twice before traveling to Russia on Monday to face Spartak on Wednesday in the first leg of the third qualifying round to reach the group stage of the Champions.
The Brazil international has shortened holidays to be available for his first official physical appearance. Everton, as is known, participated in the Copa America for Brazil, which lost in the final to Argentina at the hands of Nicolas Otamendi. Since July 19, he has been booked at the Seixal Training and Training Center. But he maintained a physical activity, following a physical and technical preparation plan. Getting fit wouldn’t be the main issue, considering he was in competition until July 10 and only enjoyed nine days of vacation with his family in northeastern Brazil. Everton have also been doing exercises with the ball, lacking only integration into the team.
On Sunday and Monday (before the trip) he will already work on the orders of Jesus, who hired him in the match against Spartak Moscow and on the first day of the tournament, three days later, against Moreirense, in Moreira de Canon. It would, as such, be another boost to Jesus early in the season.
