João de Deus's side pay proud tribute to 1964 Cup Winners' Cup

Sporting B were held to a 2-2 draw against MTK Budapest this week, in the inauguration of the Új Hidegkuti Nándor Stadium. Sporting's goals were scored by Ronaldo Tavares (23') and Matheus Pereira (50'), while József Kanta and Poór Patrik netted for the hosts.

The match brought back memories of Sporting's 1964 Cup Winners' Cup victory against the Hungarians and the famous goal scored directly from a corner by Morais.

On the whole it was a slow paced encounter, with the 9º temperatures sapping most of the pace out of both sides. Matheus Pereira put in another one of his typically brilliant performances and at the final whistle both sides could walk away happy with the result.
