Brazil football feud ended by court after 30 years

“Thirty years of hurt” the song goes, and it’s just as relevant in Brazil as it was for England back in 1996.
A bitter feud for Brazil’s 1987 football championship has finally been laid to rest by judges.
Brazil had competing leagues back then and the Supreme Court has ruled that Sport Recife, and not Flamengo, be deemed the overall champions.
The judges said this was the final whistle on the matter, but the clubs’ Twitter responses begged to differ.
