GB 8 - 0 Phoenix

Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 19167 at Rastha Arena today. Fabian Groener was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Julijan Viler and José Antonio Guamanga. GB had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Houttekier - Thadewald, Dalla Rosa, Lācis - Carvalho Barbosa, Gomes Figueiredo, Nerettig, Liber, Mäiseli - Zabala, Femìa.

Phoenix tactics involved an interesting 2-4-2 combination. The following players took the field: Göçmen - Jeanpierre, Škerlak - Văduva, Csáky, Kyhling, Iluz - Kuich, Adami.

GB took the lead 2 minutes in, as A. Femìa broke through on the left and put the 1 - 0 shot just beyond the reach of the outstretched keeper. GB managed to extend their lead to 2 - 0 when Z. Liber cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. After 28 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Phoenix found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to inadequate. Things were going to get worse for the visitors. A. Femìa squirmed through their central defence after 31 minutes, increasing the lead to 3 - 0. After 33 minutes, E. Dalla Rosa put GB ahead 4 - 0 when he rose to head in a cross from the right wing. The players of GB now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. C. Zabala unleashed a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. GB solidified their lead at the 38 minute mark, as C. Zabala dribbled the ball through the opposing central defence and scored to make it 5 - 0. It was 5 - 0 at the break. GB claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 74 percent.

The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that Phoenix had solid organisation. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in GB's A. Femìa increasing the lead to 6 - 0. That was his third goal of the match - a hat trick for A. Femìa. 56 minutes into the game, Phoenix seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a inadequate level of organisation. M. Gomes Figueiredo of GB received a yellow card after 67 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of GB to 7 - 0 as M. Gomes Figueiredo finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. 79 minutes in, Phoenix appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only weak. GB's C. Zabala increased the lead to 8 - 0, after he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing goalkeeper following some good play down the right wing after 80 minutes. GB enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 75 percent of possession.

C. Zabala performed admirably for GB. However, A. Carvalho Barbosa made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating Phoenix player was without a doubt R. Kyhling. A. Jeanpierre was a disappointment, however. The match ends 8 - 0.
