CFC 1 - 4 Dale

A brilliantly sunny day had enticed a crowd of 26469 to Croon Park Stadium. Mikel Cantero was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Helmuth Friedrich Bräuer and Kurt Eschbach. The intense heat made it hard for players relying on strength or speed to shine. On the other hand, it provided perfect conditions for the more technical players. The following players took the field: Hammerschlag - Śnieć, Andrade, Payet - Johansson, Jędrzejczyk, Skrzeszowski, Cantenys - Laureti, Porter, Ausloos.

The following players had been chosen: Amaireh - Parkes, Agrawal, de Bruine - Geisler, Chernaev, Sulka, Szűcs - Zahren, Shevkov, Boglione.

Both teams came out with a similar approach to the match, having chosen to start with a 3-4-3 formation. Today, CFC's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their supernatural level with that tactic. Dale were mostly trying to use their divine skill at attacking on the flanks. With 2 minutes played, seemingly due to lack of experience, André Luís Andrade needlessly tripped an opponent just outside the penalty area, but the free kick that followed didn't succeed. With 13 minutes played, the visitors broke through on the right after some poor defending. Roman 'Big' Sulka put the ball away for 0 - 1. After 37 minutes of play, Calvin Porter evened things up for CFC with an impressive goal coming up the middle. 1 - 1. A mistake by the home side's central defence after 38 minutes allowed Poul Geisler to score for Dale. The scoreboard now read 1 - 2. CFC had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to focus on wing attacks instead. Dale earned themselves a free kick after a counterattack wasn't dealt with adequately by their opponents. Andy Parkes powered the shot in for 1 - 3. 42 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 1 - 4 as Nitin Agrawal finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. Calvin Porter tried to get a goal back for CFC but despite all his hard work down the right, he just couldn't complete the move. CFC's Angelo Laureti was shown a yellow card after 44 minutes for slicing down an opponent. It was 1 - 4 at the break. Dale had most of the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

Calvin Porter challenged the visitors' central defence eagerly, producing a good chance 55 minutes into the game as he went for a through ball. But, as so many times before, the guests' defensive efforts got the best of it. CFC needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 60 minutes Jan Skrzeszowski made way for Anatoly Kornaukhov. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, CFC's Sadurní Cantenys was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 60 minutes. Kazêwe Havil was given a chance to change things around. After 70 minutes, CFC switched Govaart Ausloos with Bruno Beltrán, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. As Govaart Ausloos exited the field, Calvin Porter volunteered to be the new set pieces taker. A misunderstanding between the visitors' keeper Jalen Amaireh and his left defence could have resulted in a goal for CFC, but Bruno Beltrán's finish was way too lame. 71 minutes into the game Dale managed a counterattack, but Tzvetan Chernaev took a soft shot from the left flank that was easy prey for the alert keeper. It was obvious that CFC had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. CFC's Bruno Beltrán found himself alone on the left side 75 minutes into the match and laid down a perfect shot - right into the arms of the keeper! The match ends 1 - 4. CFC enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 51 percent of possession.

Calvin Porter performed admirably for CFC. Rütger Hammerschlag was a disappointment, however. The most dominating Dale player was without a doubt Zoltán Szűcs. However, Tzvetan Chernaev made a disastrous appearance.
