In the first 20 minutes, we played our best football with good pressure and fast combinations. We let the Bulls ran after the ball and tried to keep the possession. A great cross from Nico on the left found Bob at the far post and he headed the ball in the right corner to give us a 1-0 lead.
In the next 20 minutes, we dropped the speed and level partly due to the heat… The Bulls who didn’t have many shots on target yet equalized by a deflected strike!
In the third 20 minutes, we got our best chances to bring the match to bed… James came close with a flying header and Tomas went one on one with the keeper. It was Nico (in good form in this match) who gave the lead back to us with a fine strike.
In the last 20 minutes, there was plenty of space as players were getting tired running up and down the pitch. The icing on the cake was a great run by Imad who found Rick who finished calmly to make the final score 3-1 for the Legends against Shanghai Bulls.
The beers after the match tasted good. On the 22nd of September 2019, we will play our first league match of the season 2019/2020.
