Fluminense coach: Team performing close to their best
Fluminense coach Abel Braga has praised his team's performance after their 2-1 victory over Coritiba in the Brasileirão last night.
Braga told reporters after the win: "The players, in general, are performing close to their best unlike in earlier games where many players were below par. To choke is normal when the team concedes a goal after being 2-0 up."
The coach also praised youngster Wellington Nem who scored the opening goal and also assisted Thiago Neves' goal: "He had a very good performance. He wasn't playing well when he came back from injury but he has now recovered and playing to a high level.
"He is a player with great intensity and we know we can count on him, which has been a fundamental part of our performances this season."
Title leaders Fluminense will now wait on the result of Atlético Mineiro's game against Flamengo before playing São Paulo next week.
