Simão secures Benfica future



As SL Benfica prepare for Thursday's UEFA Cup third round first-leg tie with Rosenborg BK, the Portuguese club have been boosted by the news that winger Simão Sabrosa has extended his contract until June 2010.

The 24-year-old midfield player's existing deal was due to expire in 2006. However, he has been an invaluable asset since arriving from FC Barcelona in 2001/02, and is the Lisbon club's top scorer this season with ten goals.

In his first campaign with Benfica, Simão registered eleven goals, with 18 following the next term. He is also a regular in Luiz Felipe Scolari's Portugal squad, having won 24 caps, and is expected to figure in his country's UEFA EURO 2004™ campaign this summer.
