|TEAM||Clube De Regatas Brasil||SEASON(S)||2007 ?|
The next stop on our tour of the more obscure backwaters of Brazilian football is in the city of Maceio in Alagoas state. Bira, my Brazilian friend, has sent the CRB shirt for the collection and I have to confess I really don't know too much about them. As for the shirt, it has a distinctly Middlesbroughy/Spartak Moscowy feel to it. I like it very much. Many Brazilian clubs started as rowing clubs and I suspect that CRB are one of these. The St Georges cross at the top of the badge also suggests that club's heritage has some travelling Englishman somewhere in it.
