Walter double sees Goiás defeat Grêmio
Goiás striker Walter continued his impressive run of form, after grabbing a brace to give his side a 2-0 win over Grêmio.
A mistake by Grêmio’s former Milan and Brazil international goalkeeper Dida, gifted Walter his first goal.
The keeper’s botched clearance presented Walter with a chance from just outside the area, which he duly took, rounding the stranded Dida before curling the ball into the goal with his left foot.
His second was a fierce right footed effort from a similar position on the edge of the area, but this time the goal was all his own work.
The powerfully built striker knocked the ball past onrushing Grêmio defender Rodrigo, before applying the finish.
These two strikes mean Walter now has a total of eight goals for Goiás this season, and he's becoming something of a cult figure in the league thanks to some outstanding performances in his substantially sized green shirt.
Goiás move up to 6th in the table, whilst Grêmio remain in second after winning their three games prior to this.
