Es Squad 5 - 1 ricky

A scorching day at Tammo Arena, where 60914 spectators were in place for today's match. Albrecht Schlumpf was the appointed referee. Everyone was excited about the upcoming Saint Catherine rivalry match and the crowd was divided evenly. A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Es Squad. They fielded: Iorio - Kadijk, Sasson, Sørensen - Tomasino, Drawz, Bråthen, Karniš, Breton - Diaconescu, Durand.

ricky had chosen a strategic 2-5-3 formation. Starters: Vandevenne - Regal, Kurbjuhn - Partein, Molaro, Welling, Švencbir, Broas - Mohamed, Kacperczyk, Jasiulewicz.

Es Squad saw most attack opportunities on the wings. Many thought A. Kadijk ought to have been awarded a penalty 8 minutes into the match, as he went down trying to beat K. Vandevenne after an attack through the middle gave him the one-on-one opportunity. With 10 minutes played, Es Squad's A. Tomasino received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. It was obvious that Es Squad had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 18 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from A. Bråthen, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased Es Squad's lead to 2 - 0 as F. Diaconescu finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. Everyone had expected a shot from the free kick 36 minutes into the game, but Es Squad sent the ball sideways instead, giving F. Diaconescu a clear look at goal with no wall in his way. He sent it through the keeper's legs for 3 - 0! M. Mohamed enjoyed the sunshine and demonstrated his stunning technique over and over again. 38 minutes into the game, ricky's attack got through on the right, but M. Mohamed couldn't control the ball and his feeble kick wound up in the keeper's arms. 3 - 0 was the halftime score. The statistics showed Es Squad in control of the ball, with 54 percent possession.

Es Squad's F. Diaconescu was delighted to score as he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing keeper and into the net, following some good attacking movement on the right wing. 4 - 0 after 54 minutes. That was his third goal of the match - a hattrick for F. Diaconescu! That's the name of the game! By now, the players of Es Squad felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. The away team improved the scoreline to 4 - 1, as M. Molaro was able to strike home thanks to a good play on the left 73 minutes into the match. 79 minutes into the game, Es Squad were awarded a penalty that E. Sasson converted into a bigger lead without so much as a how-do-you-do to the visiting keeper. It's 5 - 1 now! Possession in this half belonged to Es Squad, who had the ball 51 percent of the time.

F. Diaconescu performed admirably for Es Squad. However, A. Kadijk made a disastrous appearance. Most important ricky player was M. Mohamed. On the other hand, K. Vandevenne's play was disheartening. The match ends 5 - 1.
