On Saturday we couldn’t say the pitch was beautiful as the surface was hard and uneven. Our opponent were the brothers of Big John and we had to make up for the loss of last week. Our intentions were good but the United players defended strong. We had a few opportunities to open the score but the Russians were dangerous with some corners. On a rare counter United took the lead with a great chest and volley ! The key was to stay calm and not lose our head. We went into the break 1-0 down but decided to step up the pace of the game as our fitness level was better than our opponent. Felix our youngster was on fire and Aga kept running 300m sprints. We started to play a good passing game despite the difficult pitch. With 3 goals from Felix and a goal each from our Spanish Tomas (or was it an own goal…?) and our French Tomas and a goal from Azz. We turned the match around and ended with a 6-1 win !
