Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions beat the Dutch to stay on top of the SIFL !


It was a beautiful sunny day in Waigaoqiao with 25 degrees and pollution free ! The lions showed up with a motivated squad ready to step it up after their good performance against Re-United last week which won us the Cup.

However in the first 20 minutes the Lions started slow and were sloppy in the final passes and finshing.

Step by step the Lions upped the tempo and came closer and closer to the “Oranje” box.

After good pressing and a quick ball recuperation in the midfield theLions went quickly up and found Romain on the back post…1 – 0 for the Lions.

Then Lions stepped up their game  and started to play faster and faster. Oranje couldn’t follow the rythme and the pressure… Result is that Lions scored 4 more goals before half time through Azzeddine, Tomas and Danni.

It is important to note that  2 assists were made by Radouane our goalie !

In the second half the Lions substituted players and the pace of the game went down but we played on quick counter attacks to score three more additional goals.

Lions were able to add 3 goals and finalize the game with 8 goal and  a clean sheet. 3 scored by the MoM Tomas, great way to celebrate hi birthday !

Only negative point of this game is the shoulder injury of our captain Benji in the second half due to a late contact with an Oranje player. We hope he can recover fast to be ready for the last games of the season !

Cheers Freek
