Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions end both Leagues with a win


The league is over and its not yet time to look back as we still have a very important SIFL Cup final + SPL semi final to play !

[SIFL] Shanghai Lions FC 3-2 Shanghai Krauts FC

Saturday we played the Germans and it could have been an easy game for us if we would have scored the chances we created but…….we liked to make it difficult for ourselves.

Losing 2-1 at half time we got 45 minutes left to turn it around. At least we showed fighting spirit and got all three points with a 2-3 win most likely putting us third in the ranking this season / we scored 66 goals and conceded 26 goals here lays part of our problem as both the Shooters and the Azzurri scored 89 and 85 goals respectively. We are masters in creating opportunities but masters as well in wasting them…….! Of the conceded goals half were gifts from our side ! Surely we can do better next season and we need to work hard to fix our problems.

[SPL] Shanghai Lions  – Flamenkos

Sunday we had a fun day as 21 Lions turned up for the last game of the season ! Third place was already secured and that’s our lowest ranking ever. We can put it into perspective we won 12 games lost 4 and drew 2 scored 61 goals (bad) and conceded 28 goals (good) we were just one point behind Hard Days Night and taking Mus incident vs Cowboys into consideration we should have been second ! Fact is that Hawks and Hard Days Night scored more goals 90 and 83 respectively ! Last season we lost 3 games and drew 1 scored 66 goals and conceded 25 and we were Champions !

We had Joel scoring his 16th of the season, Garret his first of the season and Terao his first goal in China. On top our 17 year old youngster Martin netted two goals as well. 6-0 win I forgot the other goals scorer…..! We as well had our youngest Lion ever making his debut, Alex 14 years old ! Need to keep track of all the youngest scoring Lions records ! The oldest scoring Lion is Freek (48) we hope one day you will break that record !  


We have a massive game next Sunday at 12;00 vs Hard Day Night for SPL Semi-Cup final. We will put a strong Lions team out there and make it to the final on the 17th !

We as well entered a Shanghai Football Organization 11 aside Summer Tournament ! We will give you more info later !
