Report

Partisan made their way to one of the few grass pitches in Prague to face a young mid-table Praga B. After Partisans unexpected defeat to Bohemians V, players were in the firing line and needed to put in a performance. So as 1st half began Partisan looked fired up and ready to win, playing at a very quick tempo. We scored instantly within the 1st 10mins with Ostrowski crossing in from the right and Olubokun directing his header past the goalkeeper! 1-0 Partisan!!! Praga B didnt know what had hit them; it was a completely different team from last Saturday, Burgmans and Schuchardt contesting everything in midfield! The second goal was just around the corner, Ostrowski went on a dribbling run, then playing a perfect ball to Guri who finished well! Just after the second goal, a dirty tackle on Pedersen ended his match prematurely after landing awkwardly on his back, on came Garcia. The Praga B player received a yellow card! The perfect start was ended very quickly when everyone switched off and Praga B scored very quickly 2-1! Their player latched onto a loose ball, hit it and it passed under Simuneks arms, a goal unnecessarily conceded! Wake up call for Partisan, Praga B had found a new lease of life, Garret and Patel were holding strong at the back, some great defensive blocks and sliding tackles! Partisan had found their drive back Guri defending from the front, up came the centre backs. Klopot whipped in the freekick, which was flicked on by Parker and Patel arrived to poke it in! His 1st goal for Partisan!! The game kept flowing along, as usual the referee giving us nothing, and we were apparently offside after every attacking move! Partisan were doing well, playing against 12 players. Then a piece of magic from Olubokun who hit the ball on the half volley from the left about 25 yards out, what a goal! Van Basten would have been proud of that one! Half Time: Partisan 4 - 1 Praga B Changes: Ross on for Ostrowski (50mins), Matthews on for Szabo (60mins) 2nd half wasnt as easy, Praga B was much more up for the game, but Partisan held strong, not conceding. Partisan had many chances to finish the game of completely but Guri was lazy in his finishing and couldnt put them away. Nevertheless he finally got his hat-trick; the 2nd was a mazy run through their defense and hitting it with power great finish! The 3rd goal I cant actually remember how he scored it think it was a one-on-one! During the 2nd half we picked up a few yellow cards, some crunching tackles from Matthews, Klopot and Guri, football is a non-contact sport in the CZ! Well the game ended some excellent individual performances, I have to mention Ostrowski, Schuchardt and Burgmans who were immense again, but the whole team put in a performance, lets keep it up lads!
