Alexandre Rodrigues da Silva or Alexandre Pato nicknamed "the duck" is going to be the secret weapon for South American champions Internacional in their game against Egypt's Al Ahly in the Club World Cup on wednesday.Alexandre is being called things like " a great new brazilian discovery" since his extraordinary debut for Inter last month where he scored with his first touch after 94 seconds and set up two more goals in a 4-1 win at Palmeiras. (video here).
Victory on Wednesday could possible bring 'The Duck' and his team into the finals against the favourites Barcelona .For now ...the media is being requested not to put the pressure of too much expectation on Alexandre...so the word going around is "don't muck with the duck"...!
