Santos get first win after Lux's return

RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Santos beat Mogi Mirim 2-0 in the Paulista championship on Sunday, giving coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo his first win since returning to the club in December.

Wendell opened the scoring in the 15th minute and Luis Alberto added the second early in the second half for Santos, who have made 15 new signings for the 2006 season.

Luxemburgo, who won the Brazilian championship with Santos in 2004, rejoined the club at the end of 2005 after being sacked by Real Madrid, where he had been in charge for 11 months.

Santos were held 1-1 with Sao Bento on Thursday when Luxemburgo made his return.

Brazilian champions Corinthians, who kicked off with a shock 1-0 defeat to Noroeste on Wednesday, bounced back to beat Portuguesa Santista 5-1 with a hat-trick from Nilmar.

Corinthians were without Argentine forward Carlos Tevez who was allowed to return to Buenos Aires to continue his preparations for the new season as he is still not yet fully fit.

Rafael Moura and Elton completed the scoring for Corinthians while midfielder Carlos Alberto missed a penalty in the second minute.

Noroeste and Palmeiras, who came from behind to beat Marilia 2-1, lead the table with six points from two games. World club champions Sao Paulo have still to play their first match.

The state championships kick off the marathon season and act as a prelude to the Brazilian championship.

Thirty-nine-year-old striker Romario, who finished as top scorer in last year's Brazilian championship, failed to hit the target as Vasco da Gama kicked off the Carioca (Rio de Janeiro) championship with a 3-1 win over minnows Madureira.

However, Romario, who claims to have scored 951 goals in his career and is aiming to reach 1,000 before he retires, set up the third goal for Alex Dias.
