Vieirinha on a roll, with consecutive Regency Casino Best Goal award
Adelino Vieirinha is hot right now and his opponents suffer the consequences. In February, he landed two individual accolades, claiming Regency Casino Best Goal again. Users of paokfc.gr and PAOK FC Official App voted his goal against Aris as the best of the month.
Last season, before the Greek Cup final in the Olympic Stadium of Athens, he said he should score in the final, because he never finishes a season with just one goal under his belt. And he did deliver!
In the first six months of the current season, Adelino Vieirinha didn’t score and that upset him. The bad break stopped in January. After Aleksandar Prijović’s departure, there was a need for scorers in the team. PAOK skipper stepped forward and, in a span of two-and-a-half months, he has already scored five goals. Far from ordinary goals…
A direct free-kick secured the Regency Casino Best Goal of January award for him. A volley against Panionios in the league, a spot kick against the same opponents by the end of extra-time in the Greek Cup, a long-range shot in the derby against Olympiakos and the beautifully crafted and executed goal against Aris that landed him yet another award…
The Yellows had closed up spaces, PAOK were in need of solutions and Vieirinha took over. Omar El Kaddouri served him the ball and he unleashed an astonishing long-range drive to beat helpless Cuesta.
In the poll for Regency Casino Best Goal of February, the voters were clear. They picked the Portuguese player’s finish as the best of the month with a staggering 62,87% of the vote, leaving Chuba Akpom’s goal against Olympiakos in second place. Sérgio Oliveira’s maiden goal for PAOK in Rizoupoli against Apollon Smyrni completed the podium.
