An unusual scene drew attention at the premiere of the 2022 Alagoan Championship. In the match between CSA and Aliança, a bid at the end of the first half took over social media.

An act of fair play by goalkeeper Flávio, from the visiting team, with forward Clayton, who was playing at home, was greatly applauded by the crowd at the Rei Pelé Stadium. When Clayton suffered an injury to his left knee and the medical team took care of a teammate who was also injured, Flávio decided to help, since the stretcher cart had not been activated.


It was then that the goalkeeper lifted the opponent in his lap and took him to his team's bench, where he would be better treated by the medical team. In an interview, Flávio reported that: "I saw him screaming, calling the stretcher-bearer's attention, and the stretcher-bearer said he couldn't get in. So I went there, asked if he wanted help, he said he wanted it, because he couldn't walk, he was feeling a lot of pain... I had the attitude of putting the player in my arms and leaving it on their bench. Then Clayton really thanked me, said God bless me, that he noticed that I have a good heart... I hope he's okay and that nothing bad has happened to him."

The striker will be reassessed by the medical department of the CSA this Friday and can miss the club against Sousa, from Paraíba, for the Northeast Cup, at 18:30 on Sunday.
