Belenenses won on Friday the second edition of Vicente Lucas Cup by beating Real Sociedad on Restelo by penalty kicks. Given the 0-0 after 90 minutes was necessary to resort to 13 maximum punishments to find out who would be the blue to lift the trophy at home, named after the former Portuguese international.
Defender André Geraldes made the 7-6 consummated victory after Carlos Martínez shoot the last penalty of the Basques out.
The game marked the debut of Eusebio Sacristan as head coach of the formation of the first Spanish league.


The Vicente Lucas Cup, which will be played today, starting at 19 hours, between Belenenses and Real Sociedad at the Restelo Stadium, marks the reunion of champions. We refer to Ricardo Sá Pinto and Bruma. This also brings to mind the three seasons - between 1997/98 and 1999/00 - in that the current Blues coach represented the Basque club.

Goes back in fact to the season of 2011/12 contact between Ricardo Sá Pinto and Bruma. The first was to take the first steps in coaching career after holding the deputy Speaker Peter functions in U. Leiria, while the latter emerged as one of the Sporting Academy of pearls. The result of this combination could not have been better and ended by winning the National Junior Championships.

Born in Lourenço MarquesPortuguese Mozambique, Vicente played for C.F. Os Belenenses in 13 Primeira Liga seasons, making his debut in 1954 and winning thePortuguese Cup six years later. He gained 20 caps for Portugal, his debut coming on 3 June 1959 in a 1–0 win against Scotland.[1]
Vicente was picked for the squad that appeared in the 1966 FIFA World Cup in England. As his adopted nation's team went on to finish in third position, he played in all the group stage games plus the 5–3 quarterfinal win against North Korea;[2] he was accused of fouling Pelé in the 3–1 group stage win, when it was in fact his teammate João Morais who was responsible.[3]
Vicente quit football after the World Cup due to a serious eye injury after a piece of glass hit the organ in a car accident, aged only 30.[4] He was remembered for several perfect markings of the best players of his time without making any foul, and was cited by Pelé as the greatest defender that he ever played against.[5]
