Most of the players are back and the Christmas period is always hard for some players. Back home there are many family and friends waiting and of course we tend to eat and drink more than we should ! It was for this reason we organized a friendly match versus Japan. Japan is the perfect opponent for friendlies as they never stop running.
We started the game with one minute silence for the victims of the terror attacks in France. Objective was to play good football and to focus less on the score. Within 5 minutes we were down 1-0 but after that we were in control of the game. Chakib leveled and Nadim was in great form in his last game for the lions as he will go back to Holland. He scored three goals to make the final score 4-1 for the Lions. Lions goalie Ethan had two great saves as well. Overall a good work out for everybody !
This coming weekend we will be in full force back in action. On Saturday in the SIFL we will play our old rival the Shooters and a win will put them behind in the Championship race. On Sunday we will play the Bulls in the SPL.
Obvious we ask all players to attend the training on Wednesday so that we can get back our fitness !
