Vasco recently lost Andrey, one of the exponents of the club’s famous “98 generation” along with Evander and Matthias Vital. Another good value born in the same year and who has also left Colina, attacking midfielder Matthew Moresh, began a challenge in Australia in October, where he defended the Central Coast Mariners.
And the first steps have been encouraging. Central Coast are doing well and have won six of Moresh’s eight matches. And the 23-year-old has scored two goals and one assist so far.
I had a great start in Australia. Even though I am the last one to come (by signing) and I haven’t done pre-season with the team, I am doing really well, thank goodness. I already have two goals and one assist, and the team is winning. We have just won three in a row and I hope this is just the beginning.

Despite living in Oceania for a few months, Moresh says he is very adapted and excited for what he has been there so far.
– I have a two year contract here, I absolutely love the country and club and city I live in. My intention is to create the best championship possible, both individually and collectively.
Although he hasn’t worked for Vasco since 2019, Moresh’s roots are still in So Januario. In addition to the recognition and love he swears by Cruz de Malta, the athlete sees even more reason to support the club after the arrival of two professionals: Carlos Brazil, general manager of football, and coach J. Ricardo.
– I’ve been following Vasco a lot, in fact I’ve always followed him. Now I’m going to do even more follow-ups because there are two people who were important to me in becoming a professional, which was Ze Ricciardo and Carlos Brazil. That’s why I do a lot for them. I don’t think it’s up to me what was lacking for Vasco’s rise because I don’t stay at the club, but I believe and hope that this year Vasco will be back where he should have been. I still have many friendships out there, I always talked to everyone who sent messages of support and wanted to know how they were and how the club was doing. I really love Vasco and Vasco fans.
