Clouds darkened the skies at Pyramid Road as 55200 spectators turned up for the match. Pau Guix was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Medard Modlitba and Henri Fontaine. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Cairo will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. Starters: McMahon - Moura, Bartolí, Vlassenbroeck - Sjölund, Glendenning, Jachimczuk, Calderón, Carrião - Mínguez Ochoa, Kaliszuk.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Justified formed up in a 3-4-3 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Nicot - Küttner, Nucaro, Ichim - Pincella, Poiares, O'Connor, O'Clery - Pretel, Pradas, Korte.

Justified used their divine ability to concentrate their attacks in the middle of the field. Though it was beautiful soccer, the home crowd did not enjoy C. Nucaro's goal after a run down the left with 34 minutes on the clock. Justified lead, 0 - 1. Cairo's L. Vlassenbroeck had a hard, curved free kick 36 minutes in that would have paid off, had it gone just a little lower. 40 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 2 as R. Korte finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular bicycle kick. Cairo's D. Kaliszuk sliced towards the middle after 41 minutes, receiving a sensational pass and carving through the visiting team's central defense, putting the goal away to make it 1 - 2. After 42 minutes, Justified's G. O'Clery burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 1 - 3. 1 - 3 was the halftime score. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Cairo had 62...62 percent possession. AH AH AH!

L. Calderón challenged the visitors' central defense eagerly, producing a good chance 53 minutes into the game as he raced for a through ball. But, like so many times before, the guests' defensive positioning was just too good. Cairo didn't give an inch and after 58 minutes A. Mínguez Ochoa was able to put the 2 - 3 goal away after a fine individual play on the right. S. Sjölund of Cairo received a yellow card after 60 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Cairo's A. Mínguez Ochoa was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 77 minutes. A. Tolu was given a chance to change things around. With a shot lofted in from just outside the penalty area 82 minutes in, À. Bartolí of Cairo evened the score to 3 - 3. O. Tolvanen was called on to replace Cairo's D. Glendenning after 86 minutes following a nasty collision. D. Kaliszuk is making an astonishing dash. The fans are chanting his name. You can hear it reverberate around the stadium. Now a manic sprint up the middle and into the box. Oh! He's thrown open the door! He's thrown open the door, shot the ball through, and slammed the door shut on Mr. Tumnus! Cairo has taken the lead 87 minutes into the match, 4 to 3. There'll be no Turkish Delight after the match for the keeper! Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Cairo would have 60 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Cairo's best player was D. Kaliszuk. Good thing A. McMahon isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The most outstanding Justified player was without a doubt E. Pretel. I can't remember K. Küttner ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 4 - 3.
