Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions beat Shooters 6-2 to stay on top of SIFL !


We had a big game this weekend as we played our old rival the Shooters.

John Jofre the Shooters legend was even flown in for the occasion to give them support. Our game plan on the rainy day was to pressure them from the start and get the first goal and to make them tired by let them chase our short passes. The first plan didn’t work as the shooters took an early lead with a header by Zippy.

Lions responded well by header from Francois after a corner and after that it was game on !

Lions defenders do score a lot this season and that’s a good thing ! Azz scored the 2-1 after a good run from Allan. However Shooters got one back by Claus another Shooters legend. It was 2-2 half time and the problem was that we didn’t take our chances as we should be up with more. However in this game our bench made the difference as all the substitutes come on strong and fresh and all made an impact ! We got the help from the Shooters with an own goal to make it 3-2 after a corner kick. After that the Shooters started to get tired and in the last 20 minutes the game was decided with 3 goals from Azzedine and it could have been more. We have 4 games to go and next up will be the Azzuri in two weeks first we play the Hebeiuchi Cup semi final vs Reunited !

Lets all come to training and stay focused and improve our game week by week !

Cheers Freek
