Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions beat Japan 3-1 to go 6 points clear !



It was a very early 9 o’clock game at Waigaoqiao. It was a surprise to find Francois as one of the first players to arrive but it was a positive sign. We were up against Japan who are famous for their never give up attitude. Lions started well and dominated the game but an unstoppable free kick from Japan caused a surprise. One nil down it was game on for the Lions and in the second half the Lions turned around the game with two goals from Romain and a great strike from Patrick who finally found the net. After that the game ended into a missed opportunities festival with Romain topping the chart especially one simple tip-in in front of the open goal. Allan and Francois followed Romain and missed great scoring opportunities.  We are still top of the SIFL with 5 games to go until the end of the season !


Next up will be a SIFL Cup game this coming Saturday against Kangbei  1100-1300 at Waigaoqiao. Our next league game will be in one month versus the Shooters on April 25th !


Cheers Freek
