Arturo Vidal was the target of criticism in Brazil

Arturo Vidal certainly hasn’t had a good time in Brazil, and that’s just weeks after he was hospitalized for an elbow infection, with some media criticizing his performances at Flamengo.

Questions about the “King” hardened after Mengao’s 3-2 defeat against Botafogo this Sunday, a game in which “Fla” ​​fans whistled against the Creole midfielder.

For its part, Globo Esporte rated the national team with a 5.0 note, noting that Kolo trained in Kolo “became the most creative midfielder in the absence of Gerson and did not perform. He lacked reaction in defense”. Was “.

“He had a promising start, sending a shot over the crossbar and finding himself in danger in the opponent’s area.”

“However, little by little he stopped making choices and was successfully contained by the Botafogo defense,” said Lance, who gave him a 4.5 rating.

Arturo Vidal and Erik Pulgar’s Flamengo added another defeat in the Sampaoli era, losing 3–2 against Botafogo, a game in which the “King” started as a starter and played a total of 81 minutes before being substituted.

From the initial whistle, just five minutes was enough for the Chile midfielder to score an unbeatable goal opportunity, with a powerful shot into the area that hit goalkeeper Lucas Perry’s right post. Maracana with a penalty Tiquinho executed correctly in only half an hour of commitment. Seconds earlier, Wesley scored on Victor Sa on offense in the zone.

Minutes before the end of the first half, the visitors made it 2–0. Following a corner, Eduardo took a cross that was connected in the area by Danilo Barbosa with a deadly front strike that left the local side in silence.

In the add-on, hope was reborn for Flamengo, firstly due to the removal of Rafael Cabral for a double yellow card, and secondly due to a disallowance made by Leo Pereira with a left-footed shot before a cross by Fabricio Bruno.

But a new lunge by the “Lone Star” would appear in the 71st minute, as Tiquinho scored his second goal of the night with a right foot, which was propelled by a precise cross from Tche Tche.

Bad outlook for those from Rio de Janeiro. Eventually, in the 81st minute, Arturo Vidal would leave the field of play when he was replaced by Matheus Franca, and a new offside would also come for Flamengo, a cross from Everton Ribeiro following Leo Pereira’s header.

With this result, “Fla” ​​lies in thirteenth place with only three points out of nine. The next challenge for “The King” and his team will be this Thursday at 6:00 PM when they visit Racing for the Copa Libertadores.
