United 2 - 2 Futbol

Dark skies made the crowd at the stadium today a little nervous, but the rain held off. The following players had been chosen: 如恩 (Ruen) - 航忠 (Hangzhong), 天方 (Tianfang), Penor, 道伦 (Daolun) - 祥凯 (Xiangkai), 宇 (Yu), 崇锋 (Chongfeng), 文宇 (Wenyu) - 云浚 (Yunjun), 淮 (Huai).

They fielded: 昉文 (Fangwen) - Gorzawski, Baak, Villaurreta, Duarte, Mrope - Chitic, Bort, Beyer - Cava, Suárez.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 4-4-2 formation while the visitors instead opted for 5-3-2. Futbol were relying on their excellent ability to counter-attack. Some good play on the left wing created an opportunity for the visitors 1 minutes into the match, and Josep Bort wasn't about to let it go by. He got past the defenders and fired a shot that the keeper just missed. 0 - 1 for the visitors. In a well-rehearsed move, 高 (Gao) 祥凯 (Xiangkai) delivered a free kick into the box for United. An attacker shaped to head the ball, distracting the keeper, but it avoided everyone and crept in at the far post! 1 - 1! 20 minutes into the game, Futbol seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a passable level of organisation. Marcos 'Pistolero' Suárez came close to putting the visiting team one up 30 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but 邵 (Shao) 如恩 (Ruen) managed to tip the ball to a corner. With 34 minutes played, 高 (Gao) 淮 (Huai) of United fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Futbol's Vlad Chitic was shown a yellow card after 35 minutes for slicing down an opponent. 36 minutes in, Futbol appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only inadequate. 高 (Gao) 祥凯 (Xiangkai) gave United the lead with a beautiful free kick after 39 minutes. 2 - 1! Coming from the right, 孙 (Sun) 道伦 (Daolun) almost managed to score another goal for United, but his header was tipped over the bar by the visitors' keeper. 2 - 1 was the halftime score. United had most of the ball, with 63 percent of possession.

Despite his frustration resulting in the smashing of a few teacups, the coach of Futbol was able to get his message across, and raised Futbol's organisation to solid. The bench was restless, and with 46 minutes passed Futbol's coach gave Reyes Aretio the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Marcos 'Pistolero' Suárez reluctantly left the field. 高 (Gao) 淮 (Huai) should probably have put his team up another goal after 53 minutes after breaking through the middle, but some great goalkeeping by 曾 (Zeng) 昉文 (Fangwen) kept the visitors in the game. 高 (Gao) 淮 (Huai) remonstrated furiously with the referee after United had another decision go against them. The referee had no alternative but to show him another yellow card and send him from the pitch. Good work by the Futbol defensive line after 65 minutes produced a good counterattack chance, which cut elegantly down the middle of the pitch and found Gabriel Duarte alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. United's 车 (Che) 航忠 (Hangzhong) swung in a good chance from the left, but the visitors' defence were able to clear the ball. 74 minutes into the game, Reyes Aretio finished off a Futbol left wing counterattack, making the score 2 - 2. The players were tired, but when the referee announced that there would be 2 minutes of added time they, nonetheless, welcomed the extra opportunity to make an impact. The match ends 2 - 2. United claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 63 percent.

The most dominating United player was without a doubt 姚 (Yao) 文宇 (Wenyu). 邵 (Shao) 如恩 (Ruen) turned in a dismal performance, however. Futbol's best player was Reyes Aretio. However, Bryan Baak made a disastrous appearance.
