Last month we told the first part of Westway football coach Maz Bettache’s adventure to Brazil. He played for his side, the Corinthian-Casuals, in a special friendly match against Brazilian powerhouses, Corinthians Paulista. The match was organized to honour the origins of both clubs and to remember the players that were lost during World War One.
