Shanghai Lions Veterans remain unbeaten!
On Sunday 21st, the weather was better and even turned good in the afternoon! La “creme de la creme” of the Lions was ready for their third game. We were a bit low on numbers but with the help of Jack and Michael who looked very old on the occasion and having flown in Bibi for this game we were up for it against the 30 Japanese players of Super 48. Believe it or not but Charles scored a nice goal after 15 minutes. It seems he is more at ease with the veterans and performs better. Jeff out of all people scored the 2-0. In the second half Charles scored another goal and he acted as if that was normal for him, well…….! Now the pressure was on el Presidente as playing upfront you need to score. Missing a few chances resulted in some good laughs but somehow in a scramble in the goal area he managed to put the ball in the top corner. Straight away he broke the record of the oldest Lion to score, 49 years old. Yamada-san (52) the biggest threat for el Presidente didn’t find the net but he did find one of the Japanese Super 48 players who received a good kick on his leg from the old master. Bibi got himself on the score sheet as well and that was the end of morning of fun ! 5-0 win and with three game won its looking good for the Master Lions! Next game scheduled on May 11th against the Welsh “Shanghai Plaid Cymru”.
