Group B began with Dick Farts FC (Eng) taking on Spider Mans Ressies (Eng). Dick Farts FC were on debut and competing in Amsterdam as part of a stag weekend and so a Friday night out on the beers in Amsterdam was clearly the ideal preparations for a 10.30 kick off.

Spider Mans were competing for the fifth time in eurofootballfives.com competition at their most recent outing at the 2016 Krakow Trophy where they had a hugely successful day. Their two teams (Eagle and Great Hawk) both won their groups. The Ressies squad was a mixture of these two teams with two Eagles, three Great Hawks (from Krakow), one Great Hawk from (Lisbon 2015) and one debutant.

The game proved to be a thriller with goals galore and both teams enjoying themselves in front of goal. We had five goals alone in the first half with Dick Farts FC edging it 3-2. We had five more in the second half with Spider Mans Ressies edging it this time it meant we finished all square at 5-5.

It was a great eurofootballfives.com debut for Mitchell Piggon as he scored 4 with David Perkins the other scorer for Dick Farts FC. Spider Mans Ressies shared them around a bit more with Ryan Stevens (2), Justin Shelley, Warren Whitmore and Liam Angel all finding a successful path to goal.

 
 
 

In the next game we had We Pay People making their eurofootballfives.com debut against a more experienced Rain Dragons team.

The Rain Dragons were making a third successive appearance at the Amsterdam Fives. They debuted here in 2014 when they had two teams under the names of Big Dogs and Damn Big Dogs. They both played in Group B and finished 2nd and 3rd with Big Dogs missing out on winning the group only on goal difference. Both teams headed out in the Quarter-Finals with Damn Big Dogs succumbing to the eventual champions Athletico Do Hollande and the Big Dogs missing out to Return of the Dancing Horses III.

They returned as The Rain Dragons in 2015. A successful group phase saw them finish second in Group B with 3 wins and 2 draws in 6 games. The tournament was then curtailed by Storm Zejko. We hope there will be no rain dance from The Rain Dragons in 2016.

Given the 10-goal thriller in the previous game we were lacking goals here it was 0-0 at half-time. There was to be a goal in the second half though and it was a killer blow struck by Will Watkins of the Rain Dragons to earn his team a 1-0 win.

 
 
 

Spain United were the last taxi off the rank in Group B as they began their 2016 Amsterdam Fives campaign against Dick Farts FC.

Dick Farts FC already had a game under their belt as they drew 5-5 with Spider Mans Ressies in the first game of Group B. It was a solid platform and they would now be looking to secure a win to propel themselves up the table. Spain United had the advantage of being fresher and being able to perform a scouting mission on their opponents in their previous game.

After the fireworks (in terms of goal-scoring) in the opening game, Group B was settling down into a tight affair since then. The Rain Dragons won 1-0 in Game #2 and it was 1-0 here at half-time in Game #3. It was Spain United who held the advantage thanks to a strike from Inigo Fadrique.

The next goal of the game was always likely to prove crucial if Dick Farts could score it then it was game on. If Spain United were to score it they would have a vital cushion. The next goal went the way of the Spanish as #5 doubled their lead. #5 was on target again to complete the scoring in a fine 3-0 win for Spain United.

 
 
 

Spider Mans Ressies earned a good opening point in their first game and their next opponents would be We Pay People who narrowly lost (1-0) in their opening fixture.

After the first three games, Group B looked like it could be a pretty tight and even group the pattern continued in the first half of this one as the teams could not be separated at the end of the first half of play. Liam Angel was on target for the second game in a row for Spider Mans Ressies and We Pay People scored their first of the tournament through #7.

In the second half it would remain tight but we would have a winner. Spider Mans Ressies emerged victorious with another strike from Liam Angel and a Ryan Stevens goal outgunning Jamez's strike for We Pay People. The 3-2 win sent the English team to the top of the table although the teams immediately below them would play each other next.

For We Pay People it was an unfortunate start two defeats but only by the odd goal on each occasion.

 
 
 

The Rain Dragons started off Group B with a 1-0 win versus We Pay People. Spain United opened their tournament with a 3-0 win over Dick Farts FC. The Rain Dragons and Spain United would now come face to face as Group B reached the half-way stage.

A win for either team would send them top of the table with a 2-point cushion. A draw would mean 3 teams shared the lead on 4 points. With both defences keeping clean sheets in their opening games you felt goals could well be at a premium so when Spain United forged a 2-0 lead at half-time you felt that was a comprehensive lead. The Amsterdam-based team had Manuel Doncel and Jaime Bilbao to thank for their goals.

In the second half Spain United doubled the lead as the men wearing the Spanish national team's replica shirts began to turn on the style. Enrique Martinez made it 3-0 before #4 made it 4-0 and the points were wrapped up.

It was a great win for the Spanish team that saw them sat proudly at the top of the table still unbeaten and still to concede a goal.
