The 32928 fans in attendance at Barbados Arena were roasting in the hot sun. Carlos Fernández was the appointed referee. Our studio analysts were correct. Barbados has taken the field in a 5-4-1 alignment. They fielded: Stănescu - Radwan, Meurant, Zakurdaev, Goritskiy, Osca - Chechulin, Vikuliev, Arestov, Hubbeling - Bereslavskiy.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Gorizont formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Örfi - Zuya, Juárez Sierra, Stupka - Solomyanko, Pyatunin, Theillard, Orengård, Devyatyarov - Blaas, Ali.

Barbados saw most attack opportunities on the wings. Today, Gorizont's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks. Down the middle came D. Devyatyarov, making a fantastic play that nearly saw Gorizont take the lead after 6 minutes, but A. Stănescu preserved the tie. Oh, it's a stupendous shot on goal! A Caravaggio! A Michaelangelo! A Venus on the Half Shell! 20 minutes into the match and M. Bereslavskiy has created art for the ages for Barbados, putting them ahead 1 - 0. I'm weeping. I can't stop my eyes. Proving that a foot massage and a pre-game pedicure can work wonders, W. Hubbeling sent a rocket into the box from the corner, finding P. Goritskiy, who headed it past the keeper with extreme prejudice. 21 minutes in and it's 2 - 0! The score became 3 - 0 with 25 minutes played, when Barbados were given a penalty. W. Hubbeling made no mistake and increased the home lead. C. Meurant could have put Barbados up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 27 minutes. Gorizont fought on, and after 33 minutes, D. Devyatyarov was able to increase the goal tally to 3 - 1 after some excellent moves on the right side were finished off with a smart lob. 3 - 1 was the score after the first half. Barbados were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

Gorizont had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to go down the wing instead. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased Barbados's lead to 4 - 1 as A. Radwan finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. W. Hubbeling of Barbados received a yellow card after 52 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. With 65 minutes played, the Gorizont coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. A. Wisutrangsi came on and Z. Ali had to leave the fray. A. Wisutrangsi became the new Gorizont captain. The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show Gorizont in control of the ball, with 56 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

The local beauty queen presented Barbados's D. Osca with a prize turducken for being named Man of the Match. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because W. Hubbeling seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The most outstanding Gorizont player was without a doubt K. Orengård. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by J. Theillard today. The match ends 4 - 1.
