games down, 2 to go in Group A and the next fixture
was between Water Boy and Mini FC.
2016 Algarve Open was proving to be high on quality
and testimony to this was how Water Boy were struggling
at the foot of the table in contrast to previous
appearances. Their first appearance, at the 2011
Algarve Open saw them finish 2nd in their group
behind (now) 3 times eurofootballfives.com winners
Athletico Do Hollande. A 1-0 Cup Quarter-Final
followed before losing in the Semi-Finals 5-1
to Cheesecake FC.
2012, they proved just as strong winning their
group which featured 2011 Krakow Trophy winners,
Apsley House. In the Cup Quarter-Finals they endured
a tough 0-0 versus Parry St Germain emerging victorious
3-2 on penalties. They then went out in the Cup
Semi-Finals again, 4-0 to the eventual champions
ManDem United. In 2013, they had a less successful
group phase coming 4th out of 6 teams but in the
knock-out stages found their form and went on
to win the Plate competition beating Dutch team
United Colours of Benetton 2-1 in the Final.
2014 Algarve Open was their most successful tournament
to date where they won Group A with 4 wins out
of 5. A Cup Semi-Final win, 1-0, over Scoregasm
saw them reach their first Cup Final. Unfortunately
for them they couldn't go all the way and lost
the Final 2-1 to Stand Cristina. Last year was
an equally successful tournament with 13 points
from 15 to win Group A. The knock-out phase began
well with a 4-0 win over Drunken DisAudley before
a 3 rd Cup Semi-Final defeat in 5 years. This
time it was 2-0 to RC Lens.
far today they had 3 defeats and knew their future
lay in the Plate this afternoon. Mini FC were
looking at the other end of the table and if they
could win this game they would win Group A. At
half-time the two teams were level at 1-1 thanks
to goals from Braulio Silvia (Mini FC) and Manio
Sebastian (Water Boy).
FC claimed the win and the Group A title after
the break when Nuno Delgado made it 2-1 before
Pedro Santos sealed a 3-1 victory. Many congratulations
to Mini FC.
