Washington, D.C. (Stone Sports Management, LLC) – March 30, 2015

Adailton's first match after receiving his wife and son from Brazil was a special one. Not only was this the first time he played in front of his son, but the 31 year-old Brazilian earned Man of the Match, after scoring the game winning goal from a Harrison Shipp corner-kick and leading the defense to its first clean sheet of the season.  Head Coach Frank Yallop praised the central defending pair of Adailton and Fire Captain Jeff Larentowicz after not allowing a shot on frame against the Philadelphia Union helping the side earn its first victory in 2015 with a 1-0 win.

Adailton’s goal, just the Fire’s second of the season, was extra special as he had his family watching from the Toyota Park stands for the first time.  “I’m so excited,” the 31-year-old said. “It’s so funny because my family arrived on Friday, my son, my wife and my mother-in-law, and before the game I said, ‘Today I will score for you,’ I said to my baby. And when I scored, it was such a nice moment I will never forget.”

Adailton has received praise for his performances so far this season, as he was brought in by Head Coach Frank Yallop and his staff to solidify the backline after a dismal 2014 performance.

"I am so happy for Adailton to welcome his family to the United States by scoring a goal for them and to help the Chicago Fire earn its first clean sheet," praised SSM's President and Players' Agent Justin B. Stone.  "This is a sign that Adailton is adapting to Major League Soccer, and I expect him and the Fire defense to get stronger as the season progresses."
