dream 0 - 8 King

12000 punters turned up at iron dream maracanà, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. Jamie Verdonk was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Hari Paritala and Alphonse Owiti. The following players had been chosen: Bingaman - Samson, Purvis, Kauper, Cabrera - Bell, Goodman, Goldsmith, Stenzel - Bronson, Tolleson.

Starters: Lenouvel - Burakiewicz, 伟棋 (Weiqi), Álvarez - Hardee, Panucci, Melo, Ye, Kennedy - 天利 (Tianli), Scornavacca.

iron dream entered the field in a 4-4-2 formation. The visitors, Monkey King, chose to start the game with a 3-5-2 lineup. After 2 minutes, King's Tom Kennedy made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 0 - 1. 17 minutes in, King appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only solid. Federico Scornavacca's speed was clear to see after 18 minutes, as he darted down the wing and released Tom Kennedy who placed the ball into the back of the net to make the score 0 - 2. The King free kick 28 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But was this actually a plan? The ball landed at the feet of 林 (Lin) 天利 (Tianli), who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 0 - 3! 38 minutes into the game, King had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to passable. Having been awarded a free kick in an awkward position after 39 minutes, King did not go for a shot but instead fired the ball hard into the 6 yard box. After a brief tussle with his marker, Tom Kennedy was able to power the ball past the keeper to make the score 0 - 4. By then Tom Kennedy had scored three goals - a hat trick! A slight injury to his left calf muscle meant Donny Goodman had to leave the match early. It happened after 40 minutes. The player that took his place was Emanuel Rueda. As the captain was no longer on the pitch, Lionel Bingaman took over the role of being the dream captain. 林 (Lin) 天利 (Tianli) came close to extending the visitors' lead when he found himself completely unmarked in front of the goal after a pass through the middle. He tried to lift the ball over Lionel Bingaman but overcooked it and hit the bar instead. Halftime score was 0 - 4. King had most of the ball, with 68 percent of possession.

The King players spent the break getting a rerun of the team's tactical organisation and regained a solid organisation when the game started again. Cody Melo increased the visitors' lead by putting a volley away after a pass from the right. 0 - 5. With 60 minutes played, King's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to 霍 (Huo) 伟棋 (Weiqi) he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 0 - 6. With 63 minutes played, Blake Hardee of King fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Ronald Ye was, after 68 minutes, almost able to extend the visitors' lead with a well placed diving header after the ball had looped into the centre, but the home side's keeper Lionel Bingaman made the save. The visitors' Cipriano Álvarez took advantage of a misunderstanding between the home side's goalie and centre backs 72 minutes into the match. 0 - 7 for King. Some fine movement on the left led to a King goal after 73 minutes, making it 0 - 8. Tom Kennedy was noted down as the scorer. The referee announced 3 minutes of stoppage time, giving fans a slim hope that their team could get one more attack in before this was all over. The match ends 0 - 8. King claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 67 percent.

Most important dream player was Emanuel Rueda. Lionel Bingaman was a disappointment, however. King's top performer was clearly Matteo Panucci. 林 (Lin) 天利 (Tianli) on the other hand, had a terrible day.
