Sporting Lisbon 's Match Report


ESPZEN U14 's Match Report


It was another tough game for the ESPZEN boys playing up two age groups against a strong Sporting Lisbon side. We worked on 1v1 defending the day before as we knew this would be key in the game and we saw a number of great examples of this during the game. Unfortunately Sporting were stronger and won more 1v1 battles than us which enabled them the space to get their shots off and they were very clinical punishing us on a number of occassion. In a 9v9 formation it leaves a lot of more 1v1 situations during games than 11v11 as with 11 you generally have a plus 1 in defence with an extra centre back to defend against teams who typically play 433/4231 which leaves you 4v3 at back and you normally have a plus 1 in midfield as one of their midfielder lies deep which our centre forward can pick up and our deeper lying midfielder should be free to screen forward passes, help the full back in 1v1 situations and the other midfielders pick up the two advanced midfielders who will look to get forward. 

Despite the difficulties we scored two great goals. We responded directly after one of Sporting's goals by playing back to the centre back, who played short to the left sided defenders who played a great forward pass to Lou who made a good run behind, Lou did well to hold it up and lay it off to our centre midfielder, Danial, who unleashed a stunning strike into the top corner. The second goal came from a great cross into the box which was well finished by Kaellen. Haqqi looked a real threat on his debut, beating his man a number of times in 1v1 situations which enabled us to get behind the opponent into dangerous areas. 

Despite conceeding a number of goals I can't fault the effort of the boys. We won't be able to play well every game but one thing we can control is the effort we put in and I can't fault any of the boys who gave 100% right to the end on what was a very hot day. A number of other lessons we've been working on, including specfic communication, was well utilised by Felix and Oscar in particular. We'll look to continue building on our individual quality, team shape and most importantly our life skills which we'll continue transferring from the pitch to other areas of life. Coupling this with our committment in training/games and the mentality to keep going no matter how tough things get will stand us in good stead regardless of where we finish the season. Well done to Sporting Lisbon on their performance and well deserved victory.
