Shanghai Lions Football Club

Lions reached the SIFL CUp final !



The weather was great on Saturday and the key for us was to take the game agains Reunited 3 seriously. Cup ties are always different and especially when you play against  a second division teams you need to be alert. The Lions started well and took control from the beginning it was a great strike of left defender Nicolas which opened the score. Benji our captain was unlucky to get a knock on his upper leg which left him out of the game. Azzeddine in fine form added two more goals before half time. In the second half we kept playing and Tomas added the fourth with his head. Reunited got a goal back which sparked some hope but in vain as a great control from Allan after a long pass over everybody put him one on one versus the keeper and he made the final score 5-1.


After our game the other semi-final took  place and Shooters beat Reunited to set up a classic final Lions vs Shooters in June.


Our next league game this Saturday will be against the Shooters. This will be a key game for the Championship as a win will put us one step closer. We have 7 games to go out of which two cup finals and we are in a position to win the treble !


Let’s go for it and of course we expect all Lions to  train this Wednesday and to prepare well for the BIG game on Saturday !


Go Lions Go ! / Cheers Freek
