Report

Moldava cup, veterans section. 30 minute games. Important to get something from the first game. Anyway it was clear that the opposition were real veterans. They had a few guys my Dad's age and most with huge beer belly. This was going to be easy. We had most of the posession as you'd expect. We tried to play nice football. A lot of our play went down the right. Martinez must have had about 4 pops on goal in the first 15 minutes. None of them requiring the goalie to do much morem than collect the ball from the bushes behind the goal. In fact the best chance of the first half was a counter attack by Malenice. A well struck shot needed a fine one handed diving save from Simunek. In the second half, it was more of the same, except, Malesice played much tighter. As the clock was ticking down, we finally got a lucky goal from a a long range Kempo shot which took a deflection. 1-0 but moral victory to the Czech grandads.
