Defensive midfielder Rafael Brito, 20, from the B team, was the big new addition to Nélson Veríssimo’s squad for Sunday’s game against V. Guimarães. Although he did not come off the bench, it was his first appearance on the tally of a first-team match.
Regular holder of the B team, Rafael Brito did not play in Chaves during this day to be able to enter the options of Veríssimo considering the suspension match that Weigl carried out during this day. This is the reason why he was called up for the main team training in the days before receiving V. Guimarães.
But there was another start from a young man in training. After playing for the main team for the first time against Covilhã, in the League Cup, central Tomás Araújo has now played his first game in the league. With the match coming to an end, in the compensation period, he almost did not enter, but he was even released in place of Vertonghen.
