young x 1 - 3 FC TOP

The skies were cloudy, but it wasn't raining. The 194 spectators at young xargon stadium today seemed reasonably pleased, at least with the weather. The lucky starting players: Scarabelli - Matzeu, Rambaldi, Caria, Fortino - Bottini, Giomi, Demarie, Nasti, Partigianoni - Custode.

The coach fielded the following talents: Kosova - Vidinovski, Lazarovski, Gulabovski - Kolev, Josifovski, Mahmudi, Lambreski - Zikov, Batrović, Desnoski.

young xargon started the game in a 4-5-1 formation, whereas FC TOPLICA U18 lined up in a 3-4-3 formation. The FC TOP boys clearly preferred using their ability to attack in the middle. Gianluca Caria really should have scored there - Pier Nicola Demarie redirected it perfectly to him following a corner, but the poor kid's finish flew high above the bar. FC TOP had a few good opportunities to take the lead, especially in the 19:th minute when Dejan Zikov got the ball clean in front of goal and struck it blindly, only hitting Giorgio Scarabelli. The coach of young x was embarrassed to see his players fail the tactical setup. Many played out of position and the organisation level of the team dropped to solid. Did someone forget the pre-match briefing today? The FC TOP lads didn't seem to have a clue what to do, and their organisation level dropped to solid. After 27 minutes, young x scored as Roberto Bottini's dangerous low cross was cleverly tucked in at the near post by Carlo Nasti. 1 - 0. The visitors fought on, and after 32 minutes they showed that perseverance often counts for more than pure skill. Having tried and failed a few times already, Radovan Kolev finally reached one of those crosses from the right and score the 1 - 1 goal. Simon Lambreski went down after twisting his right ankle in minute 33, but were able to continue the match none the less. Lacking experience with the current tactics, the players of young x kept running into each other on the pitch. They only managed a passable level of organisation. young x had a chance to take the lead on Osvaldo Fortino's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar 35 minutes into the match. young x appeared uncertain how to play and their organisation was only inadequate. young x did not seem very confident about what to do on the pitch, the organisation level having broken down to poor. 1 - 1 was the score after the first half. Neither team was controlling the action at this point in the match.

The young x players spent the break at the feet of their coach, contemplating the mistakes they'd made so far. It helped them reach passable organisation when the match kicked off again. The boys of FC TOP were eager to get some feedback from their coach. His tactical review helped raise the team organisation to solid. young x has a few interesting new players, and Carlo Nasti is one of them. Following a chip in from the left side, he hammered the ball straight into the arms of Neven Kosova. After 51 minutes Giuseppe Partigianoni almost put the home team one ahead on a cross coming in from the right, but the shot went just wide. FC TOP took the lead after 53 minutes with 1 - 2. Radovan Kolev showed promise as he placed the ball out of reach for the home side's keeper, having cut in from the left. A haphazard combination through the middle gave FC TOP's Tihomir Josifovski a decent chance to increase the lead, and he did not disappoint. The score after 57 minutes was therefore 1 - 3. Lacking experience with the current tactics, the players of young x kept running into each other on the pitch. They only managed a passable level of organisation. In the 70:th minute, FC TOP nearly put themselves up another goal as Simon Lambreski stumbled through on the left and dragged the ball with him towards the goal. The keeper cleared the ball in time. At the final whistle, the score is 1 - 3. No one team took the initiative in the game, both teams ending up with the same amount of possession.

The coach of young x was especially pleased with Roberto Bottini after the game. The coach took Giorgio Scarabelli aside after the game, telling him it is okay to have a bad day on the pitch as long as you keep trying. Nikola Batrović performed especially well for FC TOP - this one could be a candidate for the senior squad one day. Sotir Lazarovski left the field with tears in his eyes, knowing he had been the worst player on his team.
