Lions Legends beat Shanghai Scottish 2-1 in a friendly
As the season is coming to an end soon we were happy to play a friendly against Shanghai Scottish last Sunday ! The weather was very humid and hot and we had a nice mix of players ! The first twenty minutes we played well as Mike was keeping Carlton Palmer, the ex-national England player, busy while we had Adam and Masa flying on the wings. It was a great strike of Patrick after he was ordered to shoot by half the team that gave us a 1-0 lead. The Scotts played well and compact and were dangerous on the counter. They hit the cross bar and post but our stand in goalie the president himself was not impressed however they did equalize with a header. In the balance of the match we struggled to find solutions in the box but had most of the possession… credit to the Scotts who defended well and never gave up the fight. The hard work on our side was rewarded two minutes from the end when Azz set up our upcoming left back Conway who didn’t hesitate to put the ball in the net !
The beers after the match tasted good !
