The following players had been chosen: Kjærside - Wernersgrüner, Oikari, Férez - Pomelnikov, Lykke Frandsen, Gheorghe, Travaglini, Darkowski - Gomes, Tomasson.
Tante took a creative approach on the field.
Seagal's R. Gomes
could have put the guests one up after 20 minutes after chasing a through ball from the right, but L. Pliefke
was as fast as a snake, grabbing the ball from under his nose.
The referee showed Seagal's K. Oikari
the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge.
A badly positioned defensive formation on a free kick after 35 minutes led to Seagal's S. Tomasson
giving the visitors the lead 0 - 1.
The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 1.
Seagal had most of the ball, with 72 percent of possession.
After 48 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for S. Tomasson
who increased Seagal's lead to 0 - 2.
After 56 minutes a well-practised indirect free kick routine by Seagal was easily anticipated by the defenders. The players forward were so well marked, they were left with few viable options.
65 minutes into the game, Seagal were awarded a penalty and S. Tomasson
was able to increase the visitors' lead to 0 - 3 rolling the ball in by the right post.
By then S. Tomasson
had scored three goals - a hat trick!
