ESPZEN SS Black 's Match Report

For the first time in a while we had a full squad of players on a matchday, the timing of this was perfect. Conditions were exceptionally hot and very difficult for players from both teams to play in.

With only 1 substitute FCB set up to defend late and hit us on the counter attack extremely hard. For the first half they frustrated ESPZEN, who couldn’t find their fluency of play due to the wall of Barcelona players in front of them. But a sign of a good team is when they can still create chances when they are not at there best. Leading 1-0 at half time was well deserved though, Nils with another fine finish. It should’ve been more with easy chances not taken and an amazing clearance off the line from one of the FCB defenders.

At half time there were plenty of words spoken from coach and players to develop a way of playing against a very determined FCB.


The 2nd half was completely different from the first. Even though both periods we enjoyed plenty of possession, the difference was the quality and intent of our possession play, combined with a lovely variation. It took another 10 minutes to make it 2-0, Nils finding the net again with his 11th goal of the season. The intensity of ESPZEN amazingly began to increase which made for some very entertaining football. Jan Tze finished off one of the best team goals of the season to make it 3-0 and then in the last minute rounded off the game with another good finish.


Another learning curve for the team, they showed desire and determination to get a result from a very difficult game. The group are very opened minded about tactical changes and carry them out perfectly. The heat had a huge impact on the game, credit to FCB for a very spirited display. ESPZEN showed great qualities, from Leo in goal with his ability to control the game from his keeper / sweeper position, all the way through the team who showed great understanding of tactics and multiple positions.


Captain Archie not only had an outstanding game but spoke exceptionally well at the end about the teams display and why he chose his Player of the Match. Charlie was given the award for a tireless display all round the pitch. His desire and determination drove the players on and contributed to another fine performance.


Well done all. JH
