a Cup Final we had in prospect! We had two teams
who had both excelled throughout the day. The
7, won 5, drawn 1, lost 1. They had scored 13
goals along the way and conceded just 3. They
boasted the joint-tournament top scorer, Zsoltan
Toth, with 8 goals. They were looking for their

FC: Played 7,
won 6, drawn 1, lost 0. They had scored 15 goals
and conceded just 1. They were also looking to
win their second eurofootballfives.com title after
winning the 2015 Algarve Veterans title.
you can see there was really not much in it. The
one thing to note is that these two teams had
met at the very start of Group A and on that occasion
it was Mini FC who emerged victorious, 2-1. It
was the only goal that Mini FC had conceded all
day and the only game that FC Miracle had lost
game was underway and the two teams looked just
as evenly matched on the pitch as they did on
paper. The two teams were very similar in terms
of quality and it looked like this Cup Final would
be decided by whoever could take their chances
when they came along. The two teams reached half-time
and we were still level at 0-0.
was, however, an unfortunate error that changed
the course of the game in the second half. From
a corner for Mini FC, the ball was fizzed across
the FC Miracle penalty area and Alexey Laszlo
instinctively stuck out a leg to block the cross
but saw the ball deflect into the back of his
own net. A terrible blow for Alexey and the whole
FC Miracle team.
