Luanda — The President of the Republic, João Lourenço, Sunday congratulated the management of the Lunda Norte club Sagrada Esperança for their victory on Saturday of the National Football Championship (Girabola2021).
The Angolan Head of State wrote on his Twitter page: "Great are those who work hard to deserve the victory," referring to Sagrada Esperança's achievement.
The green and white team won the title thanks to a 1-0 victory over Petro de Luanda, for the 30th and final round match of the competition, played at the 11 de Novembro Stadium, in Luanda.
