Legends were unlucky to lose against Emerald

legends-unlucky-lose-emerald[ Veteran ] Shanghai Lions FC 1 – 2 Emerald

The weather was great and we had a big legends line up for the game against old rival the Emeralds ! In the first and second 20 minutes of the match we played our best football of the season. With a compact squad we kept the ball in our possession and made the Emerald players run a lot. We had some great build up plays and within 5 minutes James on a run from the right wing hit the cross bar. We took the lead by an awesome pass from Sylvain nicely finished by Romain who scored on his birthday !

It was a well deserved lead for us however in the second 20 minutes disaster struck as Emerald got a free kick at the right wing and when the player tried to cross it in it flew over our keeper in the net…..!

In the third 20 minutes we lost a bit of our composure and Emerald scored on a very fast counter it was their second shot on goal….!

For us all we could do now was fighting for every ball and try to get the luck on our side. After a few corners and two free kicks for us it was over and all we could do was drink our sorrows away with Ice Cold Beer.


Lets work on our play and fitness next Tuesday at the training and next up is England next Sunday !
