Wiggle 3 - 1 Majide

Clear skies welcomed the 34936 spectators who had made their way to Mimi`s House. Casper Larsen Nielsen was the appointed referee. Gentlemen prefer blondes and Wiggle prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Lusuardi - Hiratasuka, Jakeš, Roberts - Matsura, Anzai, Kurogane, Okimasa, Tandberg - Neubert, Vázquez Armero.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Majide will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Renicker - Pontremoli, Huch, Baronio - 山本 (Yamamoto), 山口 (Yamaguchi), Khoperia, Taku, 吉本 (Yoshimoto) - Bell, Mesa.

Majide were mostly trying to use their world class skill at attacking on the flanks. Majide had a magnificent opportunity with 28 minutes gone as P. Pontremoli hit the ball hard from the edge of the penalty box. However, the shot went wide. Many thought A. Neubert ought to have been awarded a penalty 34 minutes into the match, as he went down trying to beat S. Renicker after an attack through the middle gave him the one-on-one opportunity. Wiggle took the lead 39 minutes in, as T. Anzai broke through on the left and put his shot just beyond the reach of the outstretched keeper, bringing the score to 1 - 0. 1 - 0 was the score after the first half. Wiggle set the tempo, maintaining 61 percent of possession.

50 minutes into the game, Wiggle's N. Okimasa tried to nail the coffin shut, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased Wiggle's lead to 2 - 0 as A. Neubert finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. 70 minutes into the game, S. Renicker had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came K. Tagawa. After 85 minutes, Majide sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. In what looked like a well-rehearsed move, the ball was headed backwards and reached J. Mesa, who had plenty of time to shoot and score - 2 - 1. Majide's coach was furious with K. Taku after he picked up a yellow for saying one too many words to the ref. Cheers filled the stadium as Y. Kurogane broke through the visitors' central defense to put away the 3 - 1 goal for Wiggle. Confident in their lead, Wiggle's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Wiggle would have 64 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Y. Kurogane performed admirably for Wiggle. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because T. Hiratasuka seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Majide's best player was 斉. 山口 (Yamaguchi). Speaking of stinking up the place, K. Tagawa sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 3 - 1.
