GB 8 - 0 Phoenix

Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 19167 at Rastha Arena today. Fabian Groener was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Julijan Viler and José Antonio Guamanga. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! GB will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Houttekier - Thadewald, Dalla Rosa, Lācis - Carvalho Barbosa, Gomes Figueiredo, Nerettig, Liber, Mäiseli - Zabala, Femìa.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Phoenix formed up in a 2-4-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. 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 his shot just beyond the reach of the outstretched keeper, bringing the score to 1 - 0. GB managed to extend their lead to 2 - 0 when Z. Liber slid 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 organization level dropped to inadequate. Things were going from bad to worse for the visitors. A. Femìa was able to squirm through the central defense after 31 minutes and score, bringing the lead to 3 - 0. After 33 minutes, E. Dalla Rosa put GB ahead 4 - 0 when he rose to head in a hooked ball, the result of an effort from the right side. GB's players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. C. Zabala let loose 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 snaked the ball through the central line of defense and finished for 5 - 0. It was 5 - 0 at the break. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that GB had 74...74 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Phoenix's coach went over the strategy again during the break, and after that his players had solid organization. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in GB's A. Femìa bringing the lead up to 6 - 0. That was his third goal of the match - a hattrick for A. Femìa! That's the name of the game! 56 minutes into the game, Phoenix seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a inadequate level of organization. M. Gomes Figueiredo of GB received a yellow card after 67 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased GB's lead to 7 - 0 as M. Gomes Figueiredo finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. 79 minutes in, Phoenix appeared unsure on how to play and their organization was only weak. GB's C. Zabala was delighted to score as he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing keeper and into the net, following some good attacking movement on the right wing. 8 - 0 after 80 minutes. GB set the tempo, maintaining 75 percent of possession.

C. Zabala performed admirably for GB. Good thing A. Carvalho Barbosa isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The most outstanding Phoenix player was without a doubt R. Kyhling. Speaking of stinking up the place, A. Jeanpierre sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 8 - 0.
