Lions showed spirit and beat Gremio 5-1 !



It was a beautiful day yesterday ! Perfect weather and a green pitch !


We had an interesting line up yesterday with Fred Fuseau showing up while not being selected and Farid making his come back after a world serie of injuries and Aga making his debut for the Lions !


Our strategy was laid out by Charles and Garret and the plan was to start aggressive and try to score first. Our start was one of the best we have seen for some time. All players were full of aggression and especially our youngsters Felix and Arnault were giving the Gremio defenders a hard time. It was a well spotted hand ball that gave us a penalty and Azz had no problem converting. We kept the pressure high and soon Azz lobbed the ball over the keeper from the right to make it 2-0. Against our game plan we did give back a goal to Gremio after we didn’t handle a long ball well. In the last 15 minutes of the first half we put Fred F on in order to create more havoc ! He came close once and on another fast counter attack Azz ran thru the Gremio defence and spotted Fred a quick look and an agreement on the amount of free steaks @ Morton’s was made and Azz laid the ball off and Fred hesitated for one second but than blasted the ball in the net. It was 3-1 at half time and in the second half we were a bit less focused especially in the finishing. All though Gremio didn’t create any opportunities or shots by themselves we started to give them some and escaped a possible penalty against us. In the last 15 minutes Charles scored two goals after good build up play from the midfield to make the final score 5-1 ! It was a great game from the Lions and a well deserved victory !


Up next will be “El Classico” versus the Shooters 1500 PM at Waigaoqiao.


Lets all come to the training to keep this momentum / As well bring the membership fee if you have not done so as we have to pay all the League Fees this week !


Cheers Happy Freek
