We are an international amateur football (soccer) club based in Brussels, Belgium. Every week-end 8 teams (2 ladies and 6 men’s) take to the pitch to defend our famous green jerseys. We pride ourselves on our fair play and showing our great spirit on and off the pitch! Not only do we get to make friends but we also discover some of the delightful and sometimes quirky places in and around Europe’s capital. Enjoy our website and if you’re interested in playing or helping out don’t hesitate to get in contact and become a member of this fantastic community.
Ladies 1 had a hard game in tough conditions (wind against – bad pitch) and got dragged into a false rhythm by opponents who opened the score on an individual mistake. Girls in green bucked up and scored 2 before half time (Virginie, Linette on penalty). Second half was better and we scored 3 more (Sofie – Linette – Virginie). They scored again on another individual mistake but 3 points were in the pocket.
1sts had a disappointing result after their recent good run when they lost 1 – 0 to LXG. Conceding an early goal they never got into a good rhythm . Tim’s late introduction from the bench brightened things up and we came close to getting an equaliser but it wasn’t to be.
2nds came back to form with an impressive 5 0 victory against Chiefs. We started very well with an early goal from Neil and then added a quick 2nd from Benji . Opposition went down to 9 men in the 2nd half and it was an easy stroll with further goals from Benji,Sean and Lorenz to seal the points
The 3rds won 1-0 and delivered a very solid performance. It could (should) have been 2 with many opportunities but it could have been 1-1 had Villu not miraculously deflected a close range shot. Well deserved victory and 3 precious points.
4ths lost 2/3 today for the 1st loss at home this season. Both goals were scored on direct free kick by manu and nick. We had some clear opportunities that didn’t finish inside the goal. The opponent was more efficient and luckier than us today. Now heads up and lets finish 2018 in a good way next week!
Vets 1 faced probably the best team in the Vets Division this afternoon. Mutuelle had already scored 76 goals in their previous 13 games and it was always going to be a very tough challenge. The first quarter of an hour we kept them at bay with some solid defensive play but once they scored their first goal others followed quickly and it was 0-5 at half time. Second half they scored early but we pulled one back through Carlos after a defensive scramble. They then scored 3 more to make the final score 1-9.
Vets 2 won 2-1 .
Ladies 2 picked up another good win with a 3-2 victory in the rain late on Saturday evening.
