Mini FC (Por) were making their fifth eurofootballfives.com appearance and they had been successful on 2 previous occasions both times when we have hosted the Veterans tournament in Algarve. In 2015, 4 wins out of 5 in Group A saw them win their group. They defeated Sergio Cristina in the Cup Semi-Finals (3-1) to set-up a final against Ireland's The Blackouts. The game finished 1-1 in normal time before Mini FC claimed the title, 3-2, on penalties.

 

In 2018 Mini FC repeated their feat from 2015. An excellent group campaign saw them win all 6 games and concede just the 1 goal. In the Cup Semi-Final they were held to a 0-0 draw by Trilution but went through via penalties. In the final, they defeated a spirited challenge from Hungary's FC Miracle but won their second title, 2-0.

 

It started off well today for them with a 2-1 win in Round 1. They were up against ZVC Indoor Gent and the two teams looked evenly matched after the first period. The teams entered the break level at 0-0.

 

In the second half ZVC Indoor Gent forged ahead thanks to Michael Ingels' first goal of the tournament. They sealed victory with Josse Vekeman's second goal in as many games. It was a great win for ZVC!

 
 
 

In the next game we had Tysers up against Southgate County 1s.

 

Southgate County debuted in @eurofootball5 competition at the 2015 Berlin Fives. They had a tough start losing 3-0 to 2 x Cup Semi-Finalists and 2016 Krakow Trophy champions Tinniedad & Tobacco. They then lost 4-1 to eventual runners-up Hurting Berlin. They turned things around with a 3-0 win over Scandittack FC, 3-2 win over Fail Madrid and 4-1 win over Rayford Athletic. They qualified for the Cup competition where they went out 2-1 to the eventual winners Pink Flamingos A.

 

The 2016 Lisbon Tournament began with a 2-1 win over SNQTB (Por) before a narrow 1-0 lost to French finalists World Pinteur. They then returned to winning ways 3-0 against Your Mum (Eng) before another narrow defeat, 3-2, to eventual winners Parques Tejo (Por). They qualified for the Plate and went all the way to glory thanks to a 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Townsend in the Semi-Finals and another win against Your Mum (2-0) in the Plate Final. They also had a team in the Vets who finished 6 th in their group and did not reach the knock-out phase.

 

The 2017 Mallorca Tournament saw results tail off although they were dealt a tough group that featured the eventual winners. They finished fifth of six teams to go through to the Plate. A 3-0 win over Whiteley FC preceded a 6-2 defeat to Inter Balear. Their Veterans team proved much more successful than Lisbon as they topped their group with 5 wins out of 5. A 2-1 win over Stilton Rovers saw them set-up a debut final. They were up against FC Mahou who proved too strong on the day but Southgate County still picked up runners-up medals.

 

Both Tysers and Southgate County 1s started with 2-1 defeats having been 1-0 up. It was Southgate County 1s who were on course to bounce back as Simon Hicks and Neil Spackman both hit the back of the net in the first half.

 

There was no addition to the score after the break as Southgate County 1s claimed their first win of the day.

 
 
 

Purnell FC competed for the first time at the 2017 Amsterdam Fives and Sixes. They entered a team into each competition. The Fives team drew the group of death and lost their first 3 (including to the eventual tournament winners). They finished on a high with 4-3 and 6-2 wins to finish fourth of 6 teams.
