SPL Lions beat Super 48 for their 1st game of 2013

[ SPL ] Super 48 FC 0-3 Shanghai Lions (20 Jan 2013)

First game for our SPL Lions this weekend against the Japanese team, Super 48.

Game start at 2pm with 11 Lions against 10 SUPER 48… As coach Six ask it, the goal was to score as much as possible against this team, and that’s why we choice to start in 3-4-3.

As we excepted, it was a one way game were our defenders, Jeff, Mickael and Nathan had not a lot to do. But Lions don’t play well and play to slow. Even if Super 48 is an old team, they had a better fighting spirit as the Lions. Lions take it to easy and had opportunities, but play to slow. The Japanese could stay and way behind. So defending was easy and our shots were not on target…

Finally, Dave could score the 1st goal, just before the Half-time. Poor result for the Lions..

Lions have to be better in second half. We start to play a bit better, but we still miss the target again and again. Lions shoot for shoot, but not for score. Our forwarders are in a bad day.

Hopefully, we had a nice shot from our Midfield and captain Garret to score the 2nd  goal 25 minutes after the beginning of the 2nd half !!!

We need also our defender, Michael W. to come upfront and help us to score the 3rd and final goal.

We had many many opportunities to score, but we could not hit the target, even with very easy situations.

So we have a lot of work to do in finishing our opportunities in a good way, because we will not have so many opportunities against other teams.

Let’s work this weakness on training so that we can catch it up for the next game against the Shanghai 2000.
