It was an exceptionally sunny day for the crowd that came out to the stadium today. 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. They fielded: Salvador - Castro Martins, Al-Mansoory, Augusto - Côté, Alves, Posser, Almeida Abreu, Iskrenov - dos Santos, Virta.

The following players had been chosen: Ria - Čapljić, Hacohen, Hajtman - Trumpey, Põld, Jara, Arraitza, Castellfollit - Pulkert, Bouquet.

As the teams spread out over the pitch, it became clear that they would both be using a 3-5-2 formation today. Uzeir Čapljić really should have scored when he was chosen by fate to confront a wide open goal following a great play by Salvador Jara after a corner. Olympus had several good opportunities to take the lead, especially 13 minutes in when Michael Hacohen came up alone against Raúl Salvador who managed a block. After a fine move down the middle Alfredo Cândido dos Santos nearly gave the home side a goal after 19 minutes. However the finishing shot went just wide. Olympus took the lead 27 minutes into the game, making the score 0 - 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. Clint Trumpey was the scorer. The crowd chanted their encouragement as Vermoil's Jari Virta came in from the right after 34 minutes and put the ball in the net to level the score at 1 - 1. Halftime score was 1 - 1. Possession in this half belonged to Olympus, who controlled the ball 51 percent of the time.

Bastian Côté caused the crowd to go mental with his goal up the middle after 47 minutes. This gave Vermoil the 2 - 1 lead. Aymeric Bouquet finished off a quick charge from the left of the field by chipping the ball just past the home side's keeper, making the score 2 - 2 53 minutes into the match. Vermoil had a chance to take the lead after Rogério Augusto's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled out as his shot went just over the bar after 65 minutes. Many thought Alfredo Cândido dos Santos ought to have been awarded a penalty 66 minutes into the game, as he went down trying to dribble around Luciano Ria after a determined run through the middle. Under heavy pressure after 71 minutes, the inexperienced Vermoil struggled to maintain their level of play. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 2 minutes beyond the regular 90 minutes. With the scores being level after 92 minutes, the match went into extra time. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Olympus, with 51 percent of the ball.

Despite his frustration resulting in the smashing of a few teacups, the coach of Vermoil was able to get his message across, and raised Vermoil's organisation to solid. Vermoil's Vasil Iskrenov placed the ball right at his teammate's feet after a corner, but Lúcio Castro Martins couldn't finish. Down the middle came Daniel Pulkert, making a fantastic play that nearly had Olympus take the lead after 97 minutes, but Raúl Salvador preserved the tie. Bastian Côté was first to reach a ball launched long through the center from Vermoil's defence 98 minutes into the game. He managed to keep his cool and beat the goalkeeper to make the score 3 - 2. The Vermoil coach was visibly pleased with the score so far, but still ordered a few tactical changes 98 minutes into the game. In an effort to secure the lead, Vermoil changed their tactic after 98 minutes. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Vermoil's Alfredo Cândido dos Santos increasing the lead to 4 - 2. The match ends 4 - 2. Vermoil's best player was Raúl Salvador. However, Eleutério Almeida Abreu made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating Olympus player was without a doubt Aymeric Bouquet. On the other hand, Clint Trumpey's play was disheartening.
