The day started with sunshine but temperatures of almost 2C.
We played a Romanian team that we had faced in the past.

The game started well, but the opposition were on the front foot for the first few minutes, and Suhail made some fantastic saves.

Our passing wasn’t as crisp as it has been in training and the opposition picked up the loose passes and managed to squeeze the ball to one of their best players and he hit a powerful left foot shot into the top corner which Suhail had no chance to save.

After we kicked off we started to attack and suddenly our passes were accurate and consistent. With that we got into their area and Ali Mehdi scored an equaliser.

The game was well contested after that until AVA forced a mistake from us and scored.

After that we held our own for a while but close to halftime AVA scored a couple.

In the second half AVA ran away with it and scored nine goals. We managed one more goal where our year 4 player Deen scored.

Final score was 14-2.

Every player played well and gave their best, but I have to give a special mention to the following players.

Suhail Merali for his performance in goal in the first half.
Aun Kassam for his first half performance at right back.
Deen Pirbhai for his total performance and attitude.
Husain Merali for his second half.
