up was the biggest game of Group B so far as the
top two would meet face to face to do battle.
It was RC Lens of England versus Futeboladas of
Portugal – both teams had secured the maximum
9 points out of 9 so far but one of these 100%
records would go in the next 20 minutes.
only thing separating the two teams at the top
of the table was goal difference. RC Lens were
leading the way with +10 compared with Futeboladas
+6. Futeboladas' success to date had been built
on solid defence with 3 clean sheets. RC Lens
had been built on attacking fervor with 12 goals
in 3 games although their defence was non-too
shabby either with just the two conceded. It would
arguably the RC Lens attack versus the Futeboladas
defence that would decide this one.
seemed it would be the RC Lens attack who would
take the initiative as Luke O'Nien scored his
sixth goal of the day. At 1-0 RC Lens had the
initiative, at 2-0 they had the ascendency as
Kieran Turner doubled the lead. The half-time
whistle blew and the English team were in command.
second half was played out with no further addition
to the score and RC Lens opened up a 3 point lead
at the top of Group B. Futeboladas were still
on course for Cup qualification though as they
sat in 2nd place.
