It’s Not MESSI!!! It’s Not Kun!!!! It’s……

Here are the latest news and goal scorer from Sunday’s fixture throughout Europe.

In Spain, Kun AGUERO scored for Atletico Madrid in their 3-1 win over Sporting Gijon. Jose Leonardo TALAMONTI was the hero for Atalanta scoring the only goal in their 1-0 win over Lazio. In the French Ligue 1, Toulouse captain Mauro CETTO save his side a point in their 1-1 draw with Lorient, scoring in the 89th minute.

While in Portugal, Lisandro LOPEZ scored twice for FC Porto as they defeat Vitoria Setubal 2-0 to maintain their position at the top of the Portuguese Liga. In Russia, Hector BRACAMONTE was the scorer for FC Moscow in their 2-0 win over FK Tom’ Tomsk.

The Greek Super League has plenty of Albiceleste goals to offer. Javier CAMPORA was the toast for Aris Salonika against Panthrakikos. Aris were 2-0 down at half time among which the first goal was scored by Sergio PONCE but manage to pull one back in the 62nd minute. CAMPORA then went to equalize in the 89th minute and then completed the comeback in injury time.

Asteras Tripoli went down at home 3-4 against Panionios with Mauro MILANO scoring twice for them. Luciano GALETTI scored from the spot for Olympiakos in their 2-0 win over Thrasivoulos.

Finally the last goal scorer is the one that caught my attention this weekend. Of course he may not be the high profile scorer but for many of us (the Albiceleste supporters here in Malaysia), he holds a special place in our heart.
After all he was the hero and scored the winning goal for our Under-20 in the final of the 1997 World Youth held here in Malaysia.

The name is Diego QUINTANA. My goodness, where have you’ve been? It’s been a long time since we’ve heard any news about him as these days in his is playing his club football for FC Xanthi of Greece.

On Sunday he was amongst the goal scorer in their 4-0 win over Iraklis. I was thrilled and happy to know that he is still kicking alive today. Judging from the video, it seems he hasn’t really changed that much (still keeping the mop hairstyle which he was famous for back them).
