Verón returns as Estudiantes see off Bahia in the Florida Cup thanks to own-goal howler (VIDEO)


Estudiantes’ supporters finally got to see Juan Sebastián Verón back in red and white as El Pincha signed off Florida Cup duty with a 1-0 win against Brazilian club Bahia.

Victory came courtesy of Tinga’s calamitous own goal as the young defender thumped a header into his own net but the main talking point was the 45 minute appearance of president Verón. There is a long way back for the 41-year-old but in the first half the veteran showed off at least part of his range of passing from a deep lying position.

Despite closing their preseason in Florida with a win, Estudiantes will be concerned by Lucas Viatri being forced off with an elbow injury. El Pincha face Boca Juniors next Saturday in Mar del Plata.

Estudiantes  1 – 0  Bahia
