Nigeria’s duo of Aruna Quadri and Bode Abiodun made it five Portuguese Cup title in a row at the weekend after their team Sporting beat GDCS Juncal 3-0 to retain the Portuguese Cup.

Sporting has won the last four editions of the competition to increase their titles to 26 in the Portuguese Cup.

The team is made up of Nigeria’s duo of Aruna Quadri and Bode Abiodun as well as Portuguese internationals Joao Monteiro and Diogo Carvalho.

Playing the first game against Russian Andrei Bukin, Aruna Quadri wasted no time to dismiss the Russian with a 3-0 (11-5, 11-2, 11-6) bashing.

It was not same story for Diogo Carvalho who had to dig deep to defeat Romanian Mihai Sargu 3-2 (11-4, 8-11, 11-2, 11-13, 11-7).

The partnership of Bode Abiodun and Diogo Carvalho completed the rout for Sporting when they overcame the duo of David Bessa and Andrei Bukin 3-0 (11-2, 11-4, 11-9) to lift the trophy for the fifth time in a row.

Meanwhile, Sporting had defeated ADC Ponta do Pargo in the semi-finals (3-1), the CD São Roque in the quarterfinals (3-0) and CTM Lagos in the round of 16 (3-0).

Sporting Clube de Portugal women’s team won the trophy for the 13th time, finishing the reign of CTM Mirandela who won the Portuguese Cup in the nine years above. From 1992-1993 the team “leonina” did not win the Cup.

  1. Howdy,

    Must say your website looks quite ok. Good job.
    However, if you want your website to be really successful, then make sure you use the best tools to optimize your online content.
    Otherwise it won’t be on the top of Google search results and no-one will know about it. I’m sure you didn’t create this website to just be online, but to attract new people/customers.

    Few months ago my friend convinced me to use tools from below article and I have to say it helped me soo much:

    I hope it will help you as well.
    Keep up the good work and you will eventually build a big online business.
