3-0 win against Italia82
By Mark Perry
Perfect start to the annual Vikings summer party
Must win game for the Viking Vets for us to stay at the top of the leader board in Espzen's most important league.
However, we always struggle against Italia82 who - besides playing good soccer - also happen to be a really cool bunch of lads.
The expert tactic from coach Møller was clear from the very beginning: "Guys listen up! We wan't to win this f...ng game and the league. We're unbeaten for 19 games. Let's make it 20. Put a lot of pressure on them for the first 10 minutes and let's get a fast first goal. Oh yeah. And don't forget to have fun out there". It never seizes to amaze us all how coach is able to come up with a new & original pep-talk for every game.
Not much to report about the game. It was back and forth the first 25 minutes and we were lucky to get a goal directly on a free kick.
During the second half, Italia82 pushed for the equalizer, which gave us more space for counter attacks and we managed to pull ahead with 2 more goals.
Yours truly missed a huge opportunity alone in front of the goal but due to a very sharp sun was not able to connect with the ball (I'll stick to this explanation to the day I stop my soccer career)
Great spirit from the side line with a bunch of Vikings players warming up for our annual summer party later the same evening
We wish the Italia82 defender - who got injured late in the second half - a speedy recovery and look forward to our next game. It's always a pleasure!
