SPL Lions back in competition

[ SPL ] Century Park FC 2-6 Shanghai LIONS

Last Sunday, SPL Lions had to play against the SHANGHAI 2000 FC, team who just join the SPL…
Amazing condition to play football, and good football this week end…
Beautiful weather,
Amazing pitch…
Just missing some players !!!!!

Jack in Hangzhou, Joel who just landed in Shanghai and couldn’t make it…and informed us early enough of this issues…
But canceling 15 minutes before appointment or don’t give any news is NOT ACCEPTABLE…

I expect that we respect each other guy’s…
Don’t forget that some people couldn’t play this week end because we normally were too much players… which was not the case…

Anyway, let’s speak about the game.
We played against the SHANGHAI 2000 FC, team who used to play in SIFL 1st Division.

Nice weather, probably the best pitch in SH. And now we know why, as the boss wanted us to test our ankle for the warm up.

Indeed, we had to run next to the pitch in a kind of no mand’s land . Anyway we were ready to fight…
Line up in 4-3-3 to have an offensive game.

We played a lot of in midfield, but not enough on the side.
We get some situation in front of the goal but we play not fast enough and let Shanghai 2000 defender bloc us at 15 meters from goal.
Finally, Maxime came through and give a ball back to TERAO who score….
1-0 for the Lions.
Shanghai 2000 defend very high which put us often offside…
They are not very dangerous but sometimes we take it too easy and get some little trouble to in our defense.

That’s why, for example Jeff got a Yellow card…
But we were stronger, even if we played sometime too slow…
Lions get many opportunities but cannot score.
1-0 half time.

Lions start the second half time with more speed in the game and use more the space.
Shanghai 2000 start to be more and more tired…
More space… more goals…
2-0, 3-0 and 4-0 which a nice shoot from Briac…
A few minutes later we have the 5-0…
We start to sub a lot of our defenders…
Then we get 1 goal… 5-1.
Lions react with Freek who scored again… 6-1..
At the end, we conceded another Goal.
Final score 6-2.

Let’s work on our headers and our game speed because next week it’s another team… FC Japan.

Cheers
Six
