Melgar took a huge step by defeating Internacional 3-1 in a penalty shootout for the South American Cup 2022 and achieved its classification to the semifinals, an achievement that we enjoy, celebrate and applaud. However, the same did not happen in Brazil, where a journalist sympathetic to the former soccer team Paolo Guerrero ranted against the mistians.
The red squad played to a full stadium and their fans blindly believed that they would advance to the semifinals without problems. What they did not prevent was that they would run into a team that has been working for several years, with high performance in each area of the field and with a hunger for glory. They demonstrated this as a local and solved it as a visitor through the twelve steps.
This elimination generated anger in the fans of International and even in a journalist who is a supporter of the club.
“Tragic elimination of Internacional, a fiasco in front of 43,000 people at the Beira-Rio Stadium. With so many bitter moments that we fans have had to live through in recent years, Inter doesn’t deserve the fans it has. We are seeing an Internacional eliminated by a ‘timeco’ (small team, derogatory term used in Brazil) How is Melgar? Communicator started.
“We were eliminated by a street club, which does deserve the classification, but it is a club of this size (and with its hand it indicates that it is small), to which Internacional in 90 minutes could not score even a measly goal”, pointed out the Brazilian.
