7 of Group B was an important fixture for both
Spider Mans & Eagle and Ladzio FC. Ladzio
FC were joint top of the table and looking to
keep up their 100% record.
in this report we mentioned Spider Mans &
Eagle's previous Amsterdam experience. Their full
eurofootballfives.com CV goes beyond Amsterdam
though. They made an impressive debut at the 2014
Bratislava Fives. They lost their first game,
3-0, to eventual champions CIS Committee but bounced
back in style. 2-0 and 3-1 victories followed
before a 2-2 draw consolidated their progress.
They finished off the group with a 3-0 win to
take 2 nd place and qualify for the Cup. In the
Quarter-Finals they battled out a 2-2 draw with
Shahs of Sunset before a penalty shoot-out saw
them exit the competition. Fast forward to May
2015 and they appeared at the 2015 Budapest Fives
finishing 3rd in a group that would also contain
the eventual champions. They qualified for the
Cup and recorded a thumping 5-0 win in the Quarter-Finals
before meeting CIS Committee in the Semi-Finals.
They lost to them in Bratislava and were to do
so again in Budapest but it was a good performance
despite the 3-1 defeat.
up was the 2015 Lisbon Tournament. They proved
to be the draw specialists of the tournament with
4 draws out of 5 which hindered their league progress
and so they finished 5th. The knock-out phase
saw yet another draw and so they would go to penalties
with “Where's Dave?” – the latter winning an epic
most successful appearance to date was the 2016
Krakow Trophy. They were impressive from the very
start recording a 5-1 win and going on to win
all 5 of their group games scoring an amazing
23 goals in the process and conceding just 3.
They beat Italy's Football Bassano MMIII in the
Quarter-Finals and their own sister squad, Spider
Mans & Great Hawk, in the Semi-Finals. It
set up an epic battle in the Cup Final against
Tinniedad & Tobacco which was 5-2 by the Tinnies.
came Amsterdam July 2016 (see Round 1) before
their most recent appearance was at the 2017 Budapest
Fives. Another good performance in the group phase
saw them finish in 2 nd place with 10 points from
a possible 15. They drew Budapest Celtic Hoops
in the Quarter-Finals and were pipped, 2-1. Budapest
Celtic Hoops went on to win the tournament.
Mans & Eagle were winning this one with a
first half goal from Sam A'Court and looked to
be on course for their second win. Ladzio FC had
other ideas though with two late goals from Jas
Bhattle and Shabaz Ahmad.
kept Ladzio FC's 100% record going and they lead
Group B with a maximum 9 points.
