Lions Legends beat Pudong United 7-1 to stay in the title race
It was a beautiful day clear blue sky and close to 30 degrees ! All the legends were motivated for their first game after the summer break and it showed as most of them were present at Waigaoqiao one hour before kick off ! We had three legends making their debut and Arnaud making his second appearance for the Lions ! Pascal was back as goalie and it meant that for once and for all our President was not the oldest Lions any more as Pascal is 54 years old !
[ Veteran ] Pudong United (1-7) Shanghai Lions
Our strategy was to keep a clean sheet and go for goals by playing a good passing game of football. From the start it showed that we were motivated and we played good football. The new players did very well and it seemed they have been with us for many years. In the first 20 minutes we scored 2 goals and in the second 20 minutes we scored 2 goals and in the third 20 minutes we scored 2 goals but our opponent got one back after a great free kick ! In the fourth we scored one more and tried to get Fred Fuseau on the score sheet as he needs to go for a knee operation in October and will be out for a while. He tried hard but didn’t score, Nicolas did with 4 goals Bob 2 goals and Jeremy 1 goal ! It was a great game of football as we never stopped to play and kept the pace high fr 80 minutes ! All new players did very well and the beers after the game tasted very good ! In November the Championship will be decide and in the meanwhile we will keep our strong team spirit alive !
We expect many Lions Legends at the training next Tuesday !
