Anderson misses penalty on Internacional debut

Published 4 Comments

Anderson's fresh start in Brazil has not gone entirely to plan. The Manchester United misfit, who finally left Old Trafford after a less than impressive eight year stint at the club, endured a nightmare debut for new club Internacional last night.

Better than Rooney...

After coming on as a second half substitute, the man that was once tipped to outshine Wayne Rooney at Manchester United, was handed the perfect opportunity to stamp his mark back in his homeland of Brazil. 

With the game scoreless, Internacional were awarded a penalty with just 15 minutes of the contest remaining...I think you know where we're going with this. 

Up stepped Anderson who struck his effort to the goalkeeper's right, only to see the Cruzeiro shot-stopper claim a strong arm to the ball to send it over the bar. 

Ultimately, the game finished goalless in what proved a nightmare cameo for the former Red Devil. Things can only get better, can't they?

The future 

At 26-years of age, the flamboyant Brazilian will be desperate to get his career back on track sooner rather than later. Once upon a time he was destined for greatness, but now he will just be hoping to secure consistent first-team football. 

There's no doubt about it, he will have to get his head down over the coming weeks and month...and perhaps practice his penalties.
