BayBrazil teamed up with San Jose Earthquakes to organize a Brazilian Heritage Night!
Date: SUN, March, 10h, 7:00pm
Location: Buck Shaw Stadium, Santa Clara Univeristy
On March 10, the Earthquakes played against the New York Red Bull, which hired Brazilian soccer star Juninho.
Juninho began his career with Sport in 1991 before heading to Vasco da Gama in 1995. He won the Brazilian Championship with the Rio de Janeiro-based side in 1997 and 2000 and the Copa Libertadores in 1998. On the international stage, Juninho made his Brazilian National Team debut in 1999 and earned 47 caps for Brazil, notching seven goals. He was a member of the 2006 FIFA World Cup squad. On March 10, he will be joined by another soccer star, Thierry Henry, former captain of the French National Team and the country’s all-time leading goal scorer.
What a fun family event last night!
Many thanks to those of you who joined us at the Buck Shaw Stadium.
