It had rained all day, but 65000 hardy fans still made it out to ZDRAVÍ-SÍLA-KRÁSA. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, KOPŘIVNICE decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players took the field: Holý - Lesniak, Páleníček, Záruba - Vincent, Protiva, Gregor, Čihák, Berenguer - Tokoš, Kalvoda.

Our studio analysts were correct. Gambiti has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. Starters: Konáš - Porázik, Kromonen, Pirkl - Belderink, Romoli, Gleditsch, Trane, Gripenbratt - Canà, Nascimento.

The game was characterized by rough play and many physical challenges on the wet field, but K. Gregor showed great heart and had a good game. Gambiti's G. Canà could have put the guests one up 22 minutes in after chasing a through ball from the right, but M. Holý was as quick as a snake, grabbing the ball from under his nose. While the mud made for some stunning slide tackles, it robbed the crowd of witnessing G. Canà's breathtaking speed. R. Vincent was very close to giving KOPŘIVNICE the lead with an ingenious free kick routine after 36 minutes, but the ball just grazed the bar. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 0. This part of the game was a standoff between the teams as far as possession.

0 - 1 was the score after 52 minutes, when Gambiti's G. Canà cut through the central defense and pounded one in. The KOPŘIVNICE players listened closely to their manager, as he gave new tactical instructions for the team. The KOPŘIVNICE coach was desperate to reverse his team's fortunes in the game, and ordered his team to change their strategy. Always quick and a menace to his opponents, G. Canà got through after 64 minutes, but the keeper deflected his shot and a defender took care of the rebound. A thrilling play through the middle after 75 minutes gave Gambiti's G. Canà a chance to increase the lead, and he happily obliged. The score was then 0 - 2. With 80 minutes played, a typically brave header by KOPŘIVNICE's V. Kalvoda from R. Vincent's centered ball looped just over the opposing goalkeeper's desperate reach, making the score 1 - 2. A series of fine plays up the middle should have led to a goal for KOPŘIVNICE, but V. Kalvoda's shot went over the bar. Good work by Gambiti's defensive line after 85 minutes produced a good counter-attack chance, one of which cut elegantly down the middle of the field and found W. Pirkl alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of rabid shoppers at a Wal-Mart Black Friday sale, KOPŘIVNICE's E. Protiva finally got himself booked for a foul. The crowd gasped as R. Nascimento of Gambiti was flattened by an opponent after 88 minutes and had to be helped off the field. J. Pagacz hopped from the bench to replace him. The Gambiti captaincy was handed to J. Konáš. KOPŘIVNICE set the tempo, maintaining 53 percent of possession.

The most outstanding KOPŘIVNICE player was without a doubt K. Gregor. It wasn't Star Wars night, but L. Berenguer sure smelled like bantha poodoo. Gambiti's top performer was clearly G. Canà. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by B. Belderink today. The match ends 1 - 2.
