Latest results

FC Irlande 1sts were back at home after 2 great away wins to face Higgins 1 on a slightly cold afternoon at Nosseghem. The game started on a positive note with our high press catching out the Higgins defenders and it led to some early pressure on them. We ended up with lot of passing on the top of their box but couldn’t really punish them.
Slowly Higgins started to play out from the back and beat our high press. Eventually one such occasion, they managed to put their speedy striker through who scored a good goal. 0-1.
After going down, FCI retained complete ball possession but were met with 2 lines of deep lying defence. It was a difficult challenge to find any space and it needed high intensity passing & movement which we lacked to be fair. After some good work in the middle from James & Rachid , we managed to find an opening through Alvaro who crossed it to Thomas to equalize. 1-1.
Great tackle from Lennart in the box helped stop another counter attack from Higgins as we approached HT.
Kevin came on for Alexander at HT.
Our objective was to go for the win but a slow start after HT led to a quick goal from Higgins to make it 1-2. After this point, Higgins made it extremely difficult at the back. Mo and Cillian came on to get us the equalizer. We had plenty of half chances, a fine save from Rachid’s long range effort, a close miss from a corner.

FT 1-2. A forgettable afternoon for the boys, we were just off the pace from the start and must simply start to look at all teams in this league with equal fear & respect.
Having said that, we have played some good football in the last weeks in tough situations.
We can definitely learn from this experience and adapt ourselves better for next time.
See you all in training and lets go again at LXG next week.

Thomas P is on fire🔥🔥🔥and our top scorer now. Keep it going Thomas
