Last but not least, we come to Group C where the group began with Israel's Municipality of Raanana making their debut against the very experienced English team of Skidmarks it would be a daunting start to eurofootballfives.com life for the Israeli team as they were up against a 2 x eurofootballfives.com winning team.

Municipality of Raanana were also creating history as they were becoming the first team to represent Israel in our tournaments. We wished them a very warm welcome.

It would be a good test for them against a strong Skidmarks team and they competed well. There was just one goal in it when the teams swapped ends. Skidmarks lead the way 2-1.

In the second half Skidmarks gave themselves the luxury of a two goal cushion as they went on to complete a 3-1 win. It was the 6th time in 9 campaigns they had won their opening fixture (also 2 draws, just 1 defeat). Luke Hatfield and Ashley Britten were the men to score.

For Municipality of Raanana there was a consolation of sorts particularly for Oren Tavor who had the honour of scoring his team's first goal in Europe.

 
 
 

Match 2 in Group C saw Scotty Doesn't Know versus Fylde FC Old Boys A.

FC Fylde took 2 teams to our Krakow Trophy last year for their eurofootballfives.com debut. The A team took 2 wins from 5 games in a tough group that featured teams from Brazil, Poland and Switzerland. The fourth place finish saw them qualify for the Plate. In the Semi-Finals they recorded a 7-1 win over Deddington Sea Otters before meeting Deddington Sea Eagles in the Plate Final. The Sea Eagles proved a tougher proposition and penalties were required to settle the competition after a 2-2 draw in normal time. Sadly for FC Fylde it was runners-up medals as they lost 5-4 on penalties.

They were making a good start here though as they forged a 2-0 lead by half-time. Scotty Doesn't Know grew into the game as the teams shared four second half goals. Fylde FC Old Boys A ran out 4-2 victors though.

Chris Brown bagged himself a hat-trick and George Copeland. Adam Watson and James Parker each scored for Scotty Doesn't Know.

 
 
 

Game 3 of Group C saw La Morte O I Gladioli taking on Cheesefake. It was England versus Holland with the Dutch team making their eurofootballfives.com debut. With no previous history in our tournaments we looked forward to this game with relish to see how they would perform on the European stage.

Cheesefake were born from Cheesecake FC. Cheesecake FC have a rich history in our tournaments including winning the 2014 Mallorca Tournament. However, they will be focusing their efforts on the Sixes today and their trip to Amsterdam is a joint football tour and also stag weekend for Cheesecake FC veteran Justin Rees. This is a repeat of 2017 when they were here in Amsterdam for Mark Hignett's stag. Last year they picked up 1 win from 4 group games before going out 7-4 in the Plate Quarter-Finals to Dutch team Shaolin Soccer.

There was not much to choose between these two teams on the pitch as just the solitary goal separated them at the break. It was the stag, Justin Rees, who put his side a goal to the good. In the second half Gary Hignett contributed a second goal to wrap up the game.

The final score was 2-0 to Cheesefake who joined Skidmarks and FC Fylde Old Boys A at the top of Group C.
