- the 2011 Prague Masters, 2013 Algarve Open and
2017 Mallorca Veterans Tournament. In previous
early tournaments they were only knocked out by
other eurofootballfives.com winners Bulgaria's
Lozenetz City (Prague Masters 2009, Manchester
Fives 2010) in the Cup Quarter-Finals of the 2009
Barca Fives and Spain's Futbol City in the Cup
Semi-Finals of the 2010 Valencia Fives. This trend

the 2014 Budapest Fives they drew a tough group
and qualified for the Plate competition which
was as strong as some Cup competitions that we've

22 goals with just 1 conceded. In the Cup Quarter-Final

looked like 11 wins could be on the cards when
Mike Brandon's 7th goal of the day put FC Mahou
1-0 up. Trilution were not to be beaten though
Aquino's third goal in as many games pulled
them level. The match would go onto finish 1-1,
a great result for the Portuguese.
