FC Irlande Men 1
Firsts had a good win against a strong Choule side, who we were level on points with ahead of kickoff. Having to soak up pressure from the outset, we opened the scoring after a flowing move that saw Erik convert from a Bono cross. Our start to the second half was much better, with three quick fire goals from Alvaro (after a super Seb pass), Arjan and Rachid killing the contest. Missing countless chances left the game open, with Choule getting two in the last ten minutes from some sloppy defending, but the boys in green made it three wins from their first four by full time.
Firsts win the derby against the British! After a bad beginning from FCI 1, Arjan managed to go on two great solo’s giving us a 2-0 head start. Second half the boys picked it up better resulting in multiple chances. Later on Arjan gave a cross that one of the British was friendly enough to kick in himself. Then Arjan missed a penalty and the usual suspects (Arjan, Siggy and Rachid) got a yellow card. As you can read it was a lot about Arjan this game, making him the man of the match as well. Solid performance of the lads! FT 3-0
Special mention for the Brits centre back who got off with a head injury. Wishing you agood recovery!
1sts played Brussels LTC1 today, hot weather didn’t stop the boys from attacking LTC1 from the beginning, Rachid dribbled and drilled in a low cross forcing an own goal. 1-0. 2nd half we became stronger, creating chance after chance, finally Bonaldi with a great cross, Sylvain scoring a nice half volley. 2-0. We immediately conceeded from a deflected shot from a corner 2-1 but we attacked straightaway, Arjan winning a penalty and scoring it. Great performance from the boys !! 3-1 FT !!
1sts were playing Portugal away on a nice sunny afternoon. We had a chaotic start to the game, finding out bono is suspended, started the game with no subs. We conceeded from a scrappy ball behind the defense that resulted in pass back in the box that helped them to go 1-0 up. We fought back, took control of the game, scored from a lob by Seb (brilliant assist by Tiago). 1-1 HT.
2nd half was tough, we missed a great open goal chance, but could’ve conceeded as well, goal line save from Erik and a flying stop from Ricard. In the end we managed to hold on to get a point 1-1 FT. New signing Rob played a great game in the defense with fellow 45-year-old Siggie.
