Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions one win away from the SIFL title !


We were prepared for a hard game and battle against United who are struggling against relegation. They are an unpredictable side mainly consisting of Russian players. The size of their goalie would usually scare a lot of people away but not the Lions ! From the start the Lions started hungry and motivated but United proved not an easy walk over in the first half. Romain scored the opening goal with a fine move and a low strike and soon he netted his second. It was two nil at half time but it was obvious that the United players without ¬†substitutes we running out of steam. Lead by Big John the Lions started the engine and went on a rampage with good possession play and some very nice goals. We thought we found a replacement for Charles who was absent due to a work commitment by putting Patrick upfront same size and weight and indeed he perfectly replaced Charles as he didn’t score !! In the end Romain scored 4 goals, Mathieu 3 goals, Azz 2 goals, Erwin 1 goal and Patrick 0 goals ! 10-0 win !

The season is coming to an end and we are player stronger and better by the week we have been working on our goal difference which is better now with 75 goals scored and only 14 conceded in 17 games. One more game to go against Japan the game is planned on June 7th 1400-1600 PM keep that date all free as a win will give us the title for the second time in a row !

Go Lions Go !!!! Cheers Freek
