Dark skies made the crowd of 12000 at TROPEZÓN STADIUM a little nervous, but the rain held off. Jaromír Šebesta was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Ron Sandhar and Sabah Yahlaoui. The match took place on neutral ground. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, U-20 Česká republika decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Valuch - Minx, Modrý, Járka - Kukol, Pachman, Raabrede, Šteffl, Barek - Hanzal, Vajčner.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! U-20 Dhivehi Raajje will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Al-Saleh - Hussain, Dias, Hamdhaan - Qaim, Devchake, Mohamed, Atrabulusi, Omar - Ghani, Solih.

It was an obvious ambition of U-20 Česká republika to play a wide game with their magnificent ability to attack down the wings. A beautiful, arcing corner kick from S. Járka found O. Barek at the far post, soaring to meet the ball. The keeper is late and he's headed it in for 1 - 0! It was 1 - 0 at the break. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that U-20 Dhivehi Raajje would have 53 percent possession in this half was spot on!

With 58 minutes on the clock, S. Járka could have extended the lead, but his rocket of a free kick went just over the bar. The U-20 Česká republika players could smell victory in the air. F. Vajčner wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for V. Václavík after 70 minutes. U-20 Dhivehi Raajje needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 75 minutes M. Hamdhaan made way for M. Hussain. S. Járka let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. The U-20 Česká republika coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 80 minutes, H. Lysáček came on for Š. Pachman. A bit of trash talk erupted into a fight as players from both sides congregated in the center of the field 81 minutes into the match. After separating the two sides, the referee and his linesman discussed the scurrilous chain of events - this eventually led to the referee calling U-20 Česká republika's J. Minx to one side and giving him a straight red card. M. Atrabulusi's knee will be throbbing for days, but thankfully for U-20 Dhivehi Raajje, he bravely continued in the match. S. Raabrede was not content with his team's lead, and tried to extend it 84 minutes into the game after a nice run through the middle, but his shot went wide. U-20 Česká republika's A. Kukol wanted to play on, but after 85 minutes the decision was made to give G. Štursa a chance in his place. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that U-20 Dhivehi Raajje had 51...51 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding U-20 Česká republika player was without a doubt B. Valuch. Speaking of stinking up the place, O. Barek sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important U-20 Dhivehi Raajje player was K. Al-Saleh. I can't remember M. Hussain ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 1 - 0.
