The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 36368 had shown up at Chérie-Paris Las Vegas for the match. Davorin Solic was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Folke Grünberg and Freddie van der Berken. Europe tactics involved an interesting 5-2-3 combination. The following players took the field: van Driezum - de Geer, van der Borgt, van der Weert, van Kolck, Vermeeren - Bakhuis, Zeldenrust - Berends, Copejans, van Campenhout.

Pannekoeken had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Lipperts - Yzer, Hafkamp, Geerling - Rousselot, Zielhuis, Stanovnik, Öreg, Neidel - de Kieviet, Thöny.

Europe clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could. It was an obvious ambition of Pannekoeken to use their ability at attacking on the flanks. T. Thöny's fine footwork caused nothing but headaches for M. Vermeeren. The keeper wasn't fooled however, and confidently scooped up the ball. They were singing the praises of D. van Campenhout 26 minutes into the match after his speculative chip from the middle of the penalty box found its way over the visitors' keeper to make the score 1 - 0 to Europe. Pannekoeken's right side looked dangerous 30 minutes in, but M. van Driezum made a good save on T. Thöny's hard shot to the top corner. W. Yzer tied the game at 1 - 1 after 32 minutes, when he converted an incredible pass from the right. 39 minutes of the match played, and a comedy of errors by the home side gave the visitors a chance at the lead, but T. Thöny, after finding himself dashing down on goal from the left with only the keeper to beat, sliced his shot horribly wide. Europe almost scored after a swift counterattack 40 minutes into the game, but D. van Campenhout put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. The referee showed Pannekoeken's G. Rousselot the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. 1 - 1 was the halftime score. Pannekoeken claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 65 percent.

L. Stanovnik had a good try after 57 minutes, coming in on a fine move from the left, but the ball went wide. With 58 minutes gone, B. Berends suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counterattack by Europe caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. C. van der Weert behaved like an inexperienced youth player after 60 minutes as he gave the ball away to T. Thöny. Lucky for him though, there was no goal. J. de Kieviet came close to putting the visiting team one up 63 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but M. van Driezum managed to tip the ball to a corner. Europe's F. de Geer was shown a yellow card after 65 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Europe mounted an inspired counterattack down the right wing after 68 minutes, but B. Berends was unable to convert from short range. As the 70 minute mark approached, the Pannekoeken coach decided it was time for a substitution. G. Rousselot reluctantly made way for F. Ibarra on the pitch. D. Lipperts became the new Pannekoeken captain. With 74 minutes played, the visitors broke through on the right after some poor defending. L. Stanovnik put the ball away for 1 - 2. L. Bakhuis of Europe received a yellow card after 80 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. A drive down the left side allowed P. Öreg to get in close and score another goal for Pannekoeken after 81 minutes, taking the score to 1 - 3. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Pannekoeken, with 66 percent of the ball.

The most dominating Europe player was without a doubt B. Berends. On the other hand, D. van Campenhout's play was disheartening. Pannekoeken's best player was J. de Kieviet. P. Öreg on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 1 - 3.
