ESPZEN SS Black 's Match Report
The only game of the day for ESPZEN and all the players were keen to perform after the disappointing performances the week before. It turned out to be a real end to end game!
Sporting Lisbon started the strongest with the number 11, who was superb all game, causing our defence lots of problems and he was rewarded with a goal.after just 5 minutes. However it didn't take long for ESPZEN to respond with an amazing long range volley from luca that looped over the goalkeepers head and into the goal. ESPZEN were playing really well and starting to stretch the Lisbon defence with quick passing and dribbling and on 11 minutes they were rewarded with another great goal. Nathan pounced on a loose ball from the GK and smashed the ball home from outside the area! Lisbon showed their quality though and came back into the game and eventually took the lead on 24 minutes making the score 3 v 2. Luca then took the game by the scruff of the neck and began driving at the lisbon defence time and time again, Harry was the man who benefited from this as he managed to score two goals from Luca's crosses to take the score to 4 v 3 to ESPZEN. A great advert for the league from both teams with some great Football being played and an exciting watch for the parents!
Isaac was captain and he gave MOM to Luca for his workrate, dribbling and setting up two goals!
