TUNA 4 - 1 VFFC

The local marching band welcomed a crowd of 39395 to da Orquestra Sinfónica. Mauro Rubio was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Cedric Spaenkuch and Timo Kravik. The following players took the field: Domingos Vieira - Olaso, Guggisberg, Krukhmalev - Danielsson, Cortés, Gouveia Lopes, Irmak, Certeiro - Júnior, Smolderen.

The following players had been selected: Simões - Hestehauge, Pereira, Veřmiřovský - Cristóvão, Golin-Greiner, Tovt, Kotowicz, Imbert - Baptista Carvalho, Karafotias.

The teams stopped and stared at each other - it was like they were looking in a mirror, since they both lined up in a 3-5-2 formation. It was an obvious ambition of TUNA to play a wide game with their divine (+4) ability to attack down the wings. With 23 minutes played Emre Irmak almost put the home team one ahead on a cross coming in from the right, but the shot went just wide. It emerged that Tristan Danielsson had hurt his left foot after 33 minutes, which led him to abandon the game. The player that took his place was Marco Kneller. TUNA broke through on the left after 40 minutes, with André Smolderen firing at an impossible angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. Denis Tovt seemed to be defying gravity as he elegantly headed in a goal for VFFC after a corner kick that was nicely executed by Afonso Manuel Pereira. That makes it 1 - 1. TUNA fans held their breath as Yvan Guggisberg gallivanted down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and fired home the go-ahead goal for 2 - 1! TUNA were given a penalty after 43 minutes - neatly put away by Jorge Cortés. 3 - 1 for the home side. Halftime score was 3 - 1. TUNA did a good job holding on to the ball, with 55 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

60 minutes into the game, VFFC's attack got through on the right, but Spiros Karafotias couldn't control the ball and his feeble kick wound up in the keeper's arms. After 69 minutes, VFFC substituted Rafał Kotowicz for Paul Mirea, hoping for a quick impact on the field. The bench was restless, and with 74 minutes gone VFFC's coach gave Renato de Almeida the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. Denis Tovt reluctantly left the field. Anacleto Júnior gave TUNA supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 4 - 1 after 82 minutes, following a good exchange of passes on the right that the away team failed to deal with. After 84 minutes, TUNA were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the kicker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his teammates a bit by surprise. Baldemar Gouveia Lopes did manage a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball out of bounds. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, VFFC's Rufino Cristóvão was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 85 minutes. Nuno Fernando Mota Alves was given a chance to change things around. Despite hurting his right foot at the 85 minute mark, Aires Simões decided to keep playing. TUNA's Marco Kneller was shown a yellow card after 86 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Despite hurting his right foot at the 86 minute mark, Nuno Fernando Mota Alves decided to keep playing. With things not going too well on the field, the VFFC coach made the decision to swap the positions of Afonso Manuel Pereira and Jonathan Hestehauge after 88 minutes. After playing for 89 minutes and finding his team in a losing position, the manager hoped to turn things around. Paul Mirea was ordered to assume a different position on the field and switched places with Rudy Imbert. The players were tired, but when the referee announced that there would be 4 minutes of added time, they welcomed the extra opportunity to make an impact. Though the away team's keeper dove the wrong way on Jorge Cortés's penalty 90 minutes in, he managed to keep it out with his outstretched leg. A late sliding challenge from Marco Kneller was deemed to be reckless, which earned him his second yellow card and left TUNA down a man. Having taken a hard knock between his legs, Paul Mirea limped off the pitch in a reduced state of dignity. He could not continue, managing only 91 minutes for his team this day. VFFC had no available replacements, and now faced the prospect of finishing the game with a reduced number of players. The match ends 4 - 1. The forty-five minutes were dominated by TUNA, with an impressive 53 percent possession of the ball.

TUNA's top performer was clearly Anacleto Júnior. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Yvan Guggisberg seemed to stumble all over the pitch. VFFC's best player was Egídio Baptista Carvalho. Good thing Nuno Fernando Mota Alves isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance.
