Things don’t always go smoothly, but the match against Vizella was quite revealing why a Porto player with different characteristics for Francisco Conceicao.
The coach’s son has been something of a dragon opener, that’s the active form he takes on the field and manages – for the most part – to create imbalances and put his teammates in front of goal.
This is exactly what happened against the Minho people last Saturday. While there was still uncertainty on the scoreboard – despite FC Porto having already won 3-2 – the young magician of the Whites and Blues, in a purely genius move, got rid of two opponents and scored two goals, with Mehdi Tarimi tracking the trajectory and diverting the ball To Pedro Silva’s goal, leaving the audience in utter ecstasy as a dragon slamming at the seams.
Formed between Sporting and Porto, Francisco Conceição has worked hard to reach the highest level in Portuguese football, with the allure of being coached by his idol, his father. Dexterity, incredible dribbling ability and speed are some of the traits of the Blue and White No. 10, who in the tournament is the player who jumped most of the time off the bench (23).
