cabau 3 - 2 Furonazo

The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 860 had shown up at cabau team Arena for the match. Marc de Grip was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jimbo Arheiligen and Georges Diemer. Gentlemen prefer blondes and cabau prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Breazu - de Lima, Reif-Pöhner, Rivas Pérez - Halcón, Dennehy, Screciu, Angen-Meldynski, Groppo - Giostra, Højer Nielsen.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Furonazo decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. Starters: Gutiérrez - Martin, Valsera, Mährer - Felgoso, Normandia, Fitero, Peñarrubia - Piqueres, Obando, Alkan.

Given a free kick in a difficult position after 5 minutes, Furonazo tried a variation that they had practiced in training. The kick was sent into the area just in front of the keeper, however, the defense were on their toes and allowed no space for a finish. 9 minutes in, Furonazo appeared unsure on how to play and their organization was only passable. 0 - 1 was the score after 10 minutes, when Furonazo's K. Alkan cut through the central defense and pounded one in. Furonazo's J. Fitero was shown a yellow card after 28 minutes for slicing down an opponent. After 30 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Furonazo found themselves out of position and their organization level dropped to poor. The crowd gasped as K. Alkan of Furonazo was flattened by an opponent after 35 minutes and had to be helped off the field. L. Fernández Somonte hopped from the bench to replace him. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 1. The forty-five minutes were dominated by cabau, with an impressive 55 percent possession of the ball.

A review of the gameplan helped Furonazo get back to a passable organization to start the second half. With 50 minutes played, cabau's J. Rivas Pérez received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. In a fantastic display of determination, Furonazo's F. Valsera forced himself to his feet, after an opponent viciously knocked him down. Furonazo's J. Gutiérrez wanted to play on, but after 60 minutes the decision was made to give M. Entenza a chance in his place. P. Mährer became the new Furonazo captain. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, cabau's J. Rivas Pérez was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 72 minutes. S. Adaimi was given a chance to change things around. cabau's M. de Lima put his head on a fantastic ball lifted in from the left, and scored after 78 minutes to bring the teams level - 1 - 1. You can tell M. Piqueres practices his free kicks. 80 minutes into the match, he hit a perfect one and made the score 1 - 2. T. Højer Nielsen's well-known speed was on display as he darted past his defender and sent a beautiful pass through the defender’s legs to A. Giostra who scored the 2 - 2 goal. The 82 minute mark saw the home team take a 3 - 2 lead after a breaking through on the left. The scorer for cabau was T. Højer Nielsen. Furonazo got a chance to level the scores in minute 86 as M. Piqueres suddenly found himself free with only the keeper to beat, but the finish hit the bar. cabau set the tempo, maintaining 51 percent of possession.

cabau's top performer was clearly T. Højer Nielsen. Speaking of stinking up the place, S. Adaimi sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important Furonazo player was M. Normandia. Good thing L. Fernández Somonte isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 3 - 2.
