Cairo 5 - 0 Chorzów

Weather conditions were fairly good for football, and Pyramid Road saw a crowd turnout of 52747. Stefano Rigamonti was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Ronald Surakka and Landuin Hofmann-Schäfer. Cairo decided to use a 3-5-2 set up. The following players took the field: Jezuit - Moura, Bartolí, Vlassenbroeck - Sjölund, Glendenning, Jachimczuk, Calderón, Carrião - Tolu, Kaliszuk.

A 3-4-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Chorzów. The following players had been chosen: Geoghegan - Merino, Mohell, Biscoito - Murray, Istrati, Di Stefano, Kilbane - Brolišs, Wardle, Correia.

Cairo broke through on the left 19 minutes into the game, with A. Tolu firing in from an acute angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. Things were deteriorating for the away team as Cairo scored another to make it 2 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for D. Kaliszuk after 28 minutes. Cairo managed to extend their lead to 3 - 0 when D. Kaliszuk cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. Cairo's D. Glendenning left the field after 38 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was O. Tolvanen. Cairo solidified their lead at the 41 minute mark, as J. Carrião dribbled the ball through the opposing central defence and scored to make it 4 - 0. After this, you could see that the players of Cairo were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. L. Biscoito of Chorzów received a yellow card after 43 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. 4 - 0 was the score after the first half. Cairo had most of the ball, with 69 percent of possession.

The bench was restless, and with 46 minutes passed Chorzów's coach gave J. de Diego the opportunity the player had been hoping for. B. Merino reluctantly left the field. With 50 minutes played, the Chorzów coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. P. Rothacher came on, N. Wardle had to leave the fray. After 55 minutes, Chorzów switched R. Kilbane with S. Barry, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. G. Geoghegan was caught napping as L. Vlassenbroeck lifted a ball over him following a free kick, but the ball hit the bar, rebounding into the keeper's arms. Cairo put themselves up 5 - 0 when S. Sjölund broke through on the right, leaving the entire defence trailing in his wake. Cairo's À. Bartolí had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 69 minutes having been played. J. Johansson was the replacement. Cairo's J. Carrião got himself booked for a foul. A. Tolu left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 77 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. A. Mínguez Ochoa was the replacement. Cairo claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 64 percent.

D. Kaliszuk performed admirably for Cairo. On the other hand, J. Johansson's play was disheartening. Chorzów's top performer was clearly P. Brolišs. S. Barry turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 5 - 0.
