4ths travelled to Wallonia to take on Chenois SC 2.
Two fairly evenly matched teams traded early blows but neither team could assert any real dominance. The breakthrough came eventually came for Chenois from a corner, with an unfortunate FCI CB glancing the ball into his own net. Half time 1-0.
The 2nd half started brighter for 4ths with more of the ball and pressure slowly increasing on Chenois. But the ball would just not go in and they were not helped the odd questionable blindness from the official.
A couple of injuries threatened to derail the FCI progress and then
Chenois then managed to get a breakaway goal advancing down the Irish right before finding a pass to an unmarked attacker in the box. 2-0 to Chenois and that basically was game over.
We will pull ourselves together and go again next week 💪🏻💚

4ths needed to bounce back at home today after last week’s loss.
We started the game very well with probably our best 20 mins of the season and got awarded a penalty after a foul on Cosimo. Tiago took it for the 1-0. That was the score at HT.
The opponent equalized just after the HT and it was a very even game until the last 15 mins.
Good fight on the left side, we got the ball from the opponent after a nice pressing. Karim dribbled the keeper and put it in for the 2-1. His first goal for the 4ths, a very important one. It became then easier and Carlo on a long range shot and Tiago in a counter added 2 more goals for the 4-1.
4-2 final score after the opponent score a last minute header.
Good team reaction!!

1st real (😬) season loss for the 4ths today.
We changed our formation due to the absences of almost all our offensive players and it didn’t work.
Opposition dominated the beginning of the game and took the lead quite early.
They were solid but not really impressive.
Just more efficient than us as we had 1 goal refused for offside and 3 face to face missed.
They scored the 2nd goal with a direct free kick in the 2nd half.
It was a close game, similar as last weekend vs Saint-Georges.
This time they were more efficient than us.
Wake up call to bounce back in a week at nosseghem.

4ths played their first home season game against a good saint-georges team who finished 2nd in D3 last season.
Game was really even for the 1sts 25 minutes and close to the half time we, as last week, decided to be a nice host and give the opponent a goal after a bad pass in our defense.
We didn’t put our head down and started attacking more.
Just before HT we got a corner shot by Manu. GK saved a header and the ball bounced on the goal line. Tiago was there to tap it in and make the 1-1.
2nd half was better for us, we dominated the game and got the reward with 10 mins to go with Peppe dribbling on the right wing, and went on a 1 vs 1 with the keeper. Keeper touched the ball and deflected just enough to not pass the goal line. Again, Tiago was there to push it in.
The last 5 mins were just defending. Not beautiful but…who cares?
Great team and fighting spirit today.
2-1 win.

4ths faced Syb RFC in sunny Anderlecht for the season opener. The boys in green started slow with low intensity. The very dry and bumpy pitch didn’t help either to regain possession. After around 20 minutes, Syb capitalised from a mistake in the back line and managed to take the lead.
A more courageous performance in the second half led to some chances for the fourth but it needed captain Thomas to score with an outrageous volley after a Nick cross. His first goal in 5 years and we will hear about it for another decade.
In the end a deserved draw to start the season. Not the best performance but we showed great team spirit.
