Alecsandro returns to complete Vasco's deadly quartet
The foursome of Felipe, Diego Souza, Eder Luis and Alecsandro average a goal a game when they have been used together this season and there was an excitement around the Vasco camp today.
For Alecsandro, of his nine goals this season, seven have come when the other three have all been on the pitch and it is clear how important the combination is to Vasco's title-hopes.
"I do not remember the last time we all played together," said the Vasco centre-forward in an interview for Terra. "But, I do know we played well when we did."
"We have trained together all week and now we will try to keep improving [as a unit]."
"We know how we won the Copa do Brasil and now we must do the same in the Brazilian Championship."
Eder Luis was also happy to speak to the journalists about the return of his strike partner.
"When you stick these players together, it will surely lead to quality," said the speedster, on loan from Benfica.
"I just hope we can get back to playing as we were before."
Vasco take on Internacional away at the Beira-Rio this evening at 8pm London time.
