Colin Kazim-Richards Scores Winner On Debut in One of Brazil’s Biggest Derbies

Colin Kazim-Richards‘ long, varied and storied career took another twist last night when he scored the winning goal on his debut for new club Coritiba – in one of Brazil’s biggest derby matches.

The Turkish international left Celtic in the summer, having made next to no impact during six months in Glasgow, and joined Brazilian side Coritiba.

Coritiba are the twelfth – yes, TWELFTH – club the 29-year-old has turned out for in as many years, but he appears to have gotten off to a good start.

With his new team mired in the relegation zone after the opening 11 league matches, Kazim-Richards was on the bench for the biggest match so far –¬†Coritiba vs Atletico Paranaense, one of the fiercest and most bitter rivalries in Brazil.

After 64 minutes, the forward was thrown on in search of a goal, and before long, he provided just that:

It might not be the prettiest of strikes, but it secured Coritiba all three points and helped stave off fears of the drop.

Could it be that Colin Kazim-Richards has finally found a place he can call home?
