who would meet Inter Women in the other Semi-Final?
It was England's The Gunners taking on GBS Reds
of the Czech Republic. The Gunners were making
their debut so were in unchartered territory.
Although GBS Reds were experienced in eurofootballfives.com
competition they were also entering new ground
in the Cup competition as usually they played
their knock-out football in the Plate tournament.
We were intrigued to see how this one would
in these tournaments goes a long way and The
Gunners had it on their side having won their
last two games to reach this stage. GBS Reds
though were without a win in 3 games and reached
the Quarter-Finals courtesy of their early morning
form. It was this form they needed to find to
give them hope of progressing.
momentum was on the side of the Gunners going
into the game it certainly was at the break
as they surged into a 4-0 lead and all but sealed
this tie in the opening period. GBS Reds clawed
their way back into in the second half but the
damage had already been done as Marco Lepee-Rivero's
goal for the Czechs was a mere consolation.
sadly had to say goodbye to GBS Reds who had
been a joy to host at the tournament. We would
see them again in just 3 weeks time at the 2011
The Gunners though, Frankie Notaro's hat-trick
added to goals from Tommy Powell and Daniel
Sparks fired them into the Semi-Finals where
Inter Women awaited. The Inter Women squad must
have been concerned on this form!
