Oceania 1 - 0 Hellas

50489 spectators had found their way to Irriducibili, despite the heavy rain. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . The match took place on neutral ground. Oceania had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Egan - Watkinson, Hobbs, Stoltenberg - Arkell, MacGillivray, Hack, Jack, Rahman - Plant, Lindsay.

Hellas started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. Starters: Mourelatos - Xenidis, Mpoulis, Saridis - Kechagiadakis, Kokolakis, Peronosporopoulos, Manetas, Kesaris - Akoumianakis, Gourgourinis.

The muddy pitch made the game a gritty affair, which seemed to suit Darren Stoltenberg just fine. The incalculable Ioannis Kechagiadakis of Hellas did everything right as he set up Kostas Akoumianakis for a goal after 29 minutes. Unfortunately, the strike missed its target. Oceania's Gatjil Plant was shown a yellow card after 37 minutes for slicing down an opponent. After 41 minutes, Oceania were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the taker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his team mates a bit by surprise. Justin Watkinson did attempt a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball into the away fans. The referee showed Oceania's Ty Jack the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Archie Arkell, who often relies on his speed, had a rotten day on the drenched grass. Donald Rahman gave Oceania the lead as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then slotted the ball into the bottom corner, giving the keeper no chance. 1 - 0 It might be a while before the fans see Oceania's Kristopher Lindsay again, after he had to leave the field in great distress at the 44 minute mark. He was replaced by Ashton Nightingale. 1 - 0 was the halftime score. Oceania claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 52 percent.

The boggy pitch disrupted the game, especially for technical players like Gatjil Plant. The home side's Donald Rahman came close to extending the lead 65 minutes into the game. His shot came in from the right hand side but Garifallos Mourelatos managed to save it with an unbelievable reaction stop. After 66 minutes, the defensive line of Hellas created a counterattack through the middle that gave Ioannis Kechagiadakis a good look at the goal, but his shot glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. Coming through the middle Kostas Akoumianakis almost scored the equaliser for Hellas after 68 minutes, but Fergus Egan made an excellent save, tipping the awkward curled shot past the post. A late sliding challenge from Gatjil Plant was deemed to be his second yellow card offence by the referee, resulting in him being sent off, and Oceania left a man down. The bench was restless, and with 80 minutes passed Hellas's coach gave Yiotis Georgatos the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Fedon Manetas reluctantly left the field. Possession was split evenly between the teams.

Darren Stoltenberg performed admirably for Oceania. On the other hand, Donald Rahman's play was disheartening. Hellas's top performer was clearly Kostas Gourgourinis. Yiotis Georgatos turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 1 - 0.
