Kyrian Nwoko put Floriana ahead but the Spartans, aided by their young players in the squad, turned the game around in the closing stages of the match.

Emerson Marcelina equalised from the penalty spot after substitute Mattias Ellul was brought down inside the area.

And then it was the turn of Barros to fire home the winner following a free-kick action.

Shaizen Attard’s curling drive hit the bar but Barros was on hand to poke home.

From then he moved to Caucaia, Gremio Anapoli and Concorcordia.

Barros is the fourth Brazilian player to join the Spartans in the close season following goalkeeper Celio, defender Mayron, and forward Vitor Manarin.
