These are the most memorable eleven players from 99/00 season in verde e brancos hearts. It's hard to choose only eleven, specially in a season that started with a low, and ended in one of the most unforgettable moments in portuguese football. After 18 years without being champions, and after a slow start, the lions speed up to become the portuguese champions and loosing the portuguese cup to Porto (former five times champions) in a tie breaker final match.
This is not the best eleven players for that season. Mbo Mpenza, number 48 was a key role in the last half of the season, but number 9 Iordanov belongs to the hearts of the most romantic Sporting fans. Not only for what he played in previous seasons, but because, on the celebrations of this title, he climbed to Marquês Pombal statue and placed a green and white scarf around the lion.
The goalkeeper, coming from an european title with Man United, was the Great Dane, Peter Schmeichel. In the defense: Cesar Prates, Rui Jorge, Beto and André Cruz (that kicked out free kicks like they were penalties). The midfield had the heart of Vidigal and the creativity of Aldo Ducher and Pedro Barbosa (the captain). In the front, as we said before, Mbo Mpenza, instead of Iordanov, De Franceschi and the killer striker Alberto Acosta.
