FC Irlande 1sts
1sts faced top of the table LXG on a sunny afternoon in Schaerbeek. Things started badly when they scored after a few minutes with a simple over the top ball which caught our defence out and their striker put it away. The rest of the 1st half was pretty even as we fought our way back into the game. 2nd half we probably were edging it in a well contested highly competitive game but chances were few and far between. We got an unexpected opportunity to equalise 5 minutes from the end when we were awarded a dubious penalty after one of their defenders was adjudged to have handled. Unfortunately we missed and barely 2 minutes later they were awarded a penalty which was well saved by Victor. Game ended 1 0. We could and should have had something from the game but its just not going for us. A lot of good individual performances today and debuts for Liam and James Brett ,son of ex player Sean Brett,who was captain of the Vets over 20 years ago . James Shallow was at the heart of most of our play and deservedly was voted MOTM.
Firsts had a tough 0-1 loss against a very strong Ambience Auderghem. We conceded after 15 when their #17 ran through to slot. He had a few other chances in before ht. We pressed without creating too much in a very even 2nd half, a good performance overall & an indication of the level we need to get to.
The firsts had a great 1-0 win away to LTC 1. Very even game, we took the lead after 15 with a lovely goal, Nair header from a Mo cross from the left after a great ball from James. Very even game throughout, we had to dig deep, they dominated but we defended really well, we should have scored on the break a few times. Naim in midfield had his best game so far in a green jersey, 1-13 contributed hugely. Let’s kick on from here.
1sts lost 1-3 to Grez.We started well pressing them high into mistakes but we conceded a sloppy goal at the back 0-1. Missed a penalty after that and shortly conceded a penalty. 0-2. We got one back to make it 1-2 but conceded just after to go 1-3 down. No goals in the 2nd half as they dropped back and we lacked creativity up top. Disappointed but everyone is eager to fight for the next game.
A friendly against a strong squad well organised and sharp.
They scored twice in the first half, a free-kick that Alvaro pushed in his own goal and a flick counter-attack. We scored a goal after a penalty by Alvaro, we conceded a penalty and another goal. They were sharper without any doubt.
Goal : Alvaro
