7 would kick-off with The Warriors versus Mini
FC. The Warriors looked destined to finish in
fourth place regardless of this result but a heavy
defeat and a win for Chorltonians AFC Vets could
see them slip to fifth position.
stakes were higher for Mini FC who needed just
a point to win the Group A title. They were already
assured of a place in the Cup as they could finish
no worse than second in the table.
FC currently boasted a 100% record and it was
a record they would retain going into the knock-out
phase. Domingos and Pedro were both on target
for the Portuguese as they were looking in great
form to potentially claim their second eurofootballfives.com
Veterans title. Final score, 2-0.
Amblos collected their 3-0 win versus Bombeiro
Faro which saw them rise to fifth place in the
21st and final fixture of Group A was FC Miracle
versus Chorltonians AFC Vets. FC Miracle were
making their second appearance with us in the
Algarve. The first was all the way back in 2012
at our Open Age event, surprisingly called the
2012 Algarve Open. They were very strong winning
Group C and winning 5 successive games before
losing in the Cup Semi-Finals 1-0 to CFC A of
was another strong performance and they had put
together 4 straight wins since opening game defeat.
They needed just a point to finish in second position
and qualify for the Cup. In truth, they could
afford defeat as long as it was not by 5 goals
AFC Vets were currently in sixth position at kick-off
but could re-claim fifth position with a win.
That win looked unlikely when Zoltan Toth put
FC Miracle 1-0 up. Zoltan Toth went on to score
a hat-trick as FC Miracle opened up a 3-0 lead.
Hungarians were not done yet though. Laszlo Zsolt
was our tournament top scorer in Lisbon back in
September with 16 goals. He bagged his first of
the day to make it 4-0 before Zoltan Toth scored
his 8th of the campaign to make it 5-0. FC Miracle
signed off from Group A in style.
