Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions back on track in the SPL !



It was freezing cold last Sunday with a strong wind from Siberia cleaning the air ! In the morning our legends had a friendly game versus a mixed Japanese side. In the early part of the game most players were frozen and combined with the age it was funny too watch as nobody could keep the ball under control. Bob scored the 1-0 and that was the score for a long time until the president himself playing as a right back showed the strikers how to score with a nice header ! The best goal of the day was a great combination play started from the back line with about 8 passes nicely finished by Bob again. It was a good exercise and we are getting ready for the veteran league starting after the CNY !


In the SPL we faced the Galacticos. Until Sunday morning we were not sure whether they could field a team as we got messages about them having only 5 players. Luckily they managed to find a stand in Chinese team willing to play ! In the first half we dominated the game and took a 3-0 lead scored by Nico and Terrao who specially flew in from Beijing for the game and Max our youngster. In the second half they got a goal back but Garret blasted a rocket in the top corner and Dave scored a memorable goal when he passed the ball back to the Galacticos but instead of passing it back the ball ended in the goal ! Max scored his second to made it a solid 6-1 win and we got our third win in a row with only one goal conceded !


Let’s all come to training and keep the upward momentum !
