final game of Group A was Aston Carter FC looking
for their first win against Aguas Do Algarve needing
just a point to finish 2nd in the group and make
the Cup for the second successive year. Aguas
games had generally been low scoring and when
Matt Melia scored first for Aston Carter we thought
it may open the game up as Aguas sought the equalizer
that would send them through to the Cup.
fact, closer scrutiny of the league table meant
they could afford to lose by three goals and still
qualify due to the heavy nature of FCB Helles's
defeat against Athletico Do Hollande. Whilst Aguas
Do Algarve tried and failed to get on the scoresheet
they never looked like leaking the goals that
would prevent them finishing second.
was a great performance and a great result for
Aston Carter. They must be applauded for fighting
to the end and finishing the group with a quality
win. In other tournaments, their performance would
certainly have seen them finish higher than 5th
and we hope to see them in eurofootballfives action
again when hopefully they avoid the dreaded Group
Algarve had a Cup Quarter-Final ahead of them
to prepare for.
