Whilst in Natal one evening we took in an ABC football match in Ponta Negra – Phil´s new adopted team! My team is Natal´s other outfit America Futebol Clube Natal, who I saw on my first visit to Natal 8 years ago. We’ve even got the shirts!
We were not lucky enough to take in a derby game, but we are keeping a close eye on who is going to finish highest in the league this season. The game we watched ended all square thanks to some heroics from the visiting team’s keeper.
Great fun and a great evening’s entertainment was only marred by the huge traffic jams after the match. The stadium Estádio Dr. João Cláudio Vasconcelos Machado is only 1.5km from the beach. That´s walking distance after a game!!
