FC Jepun U10 's Match Report
As it was first time to have "one game of 2×35mins halves 10mins break" match, it was a tough game to keep concentrations. First 35mins ESPZEN grabbed the game with wonderful techniques and power from far side. 2nd 35mins FC Jepun Hitam defended very well as a team by marking ESPZEN FW. Yu Iijima latched onto a cross pass from Suguru Ogawa and managed to get a goal. Captain Rin Miyasaka as a man of match did a good defensive work.
ESPZEN SS Black 's Match Report
ESPZEN Black team faced a very hard working FC Jepun team, and during the first 20 minutes played some fantastic football. Nils Vandermissen got the team off to a good start after getting onto a clever Jan Tze Soong pass and rounding the goalkeeper to finish. Nils then forced the second goal with a dangerous low cross, which was unluckily deflected by a Jepun defender into his own goal. Nils then got his hattrick with two goals in quick succession. Both of these were tidy finishes after clever passes from the assist machine, Nathan Mao. The tempo of the game dropped after the water break, and the play became slightly more scrappy after the composed efforts of the players in the opening period. Jan Tze Soong continued to be a constant threat as the team struggled to find another goal, but it was Jake Folbigg who made it 5-0 with a good finish from the edge of the area. Nils Vandersmissen was once again assisted by Nathan Mao late in the game to make it 6-0. FC Jepun continued to work hard and got their reward when they pulled a goal back late on. Captain Kyra Taylor selected Nathan Mao as man of the match, due to his clever passing and dribbling and his usual high taly of assists.
