Plate Semi-Final time and things were getting interesting. We were now just 6 games from the conclusion of the 2019 Amsterdam Sixes with 4 teams in contention for the Plate and 4 teams for the Cup. We began with the Plate Semi-Finals and up first was RSC Andylecht against Shamrock Football Club.

RSC Andylecht were playing in their first semi-final but Shamrock Football Club had played in two before. At the 2017 Amsterdam Sixes they lost 1-0 to TEDO3 in the Cup Semi-Finals and last year they lost 3-0 to FC Gijon in the Plate competition. Could it be third time lucky?

It started off well for the team from Switzerland as they hit the front with a Fraser Butler goal in the first half. In the second half Fraser Butler was on target again to make it 2-0. Shamrock Football Club had one foot in the Plate Final when Lewis Ball made it 3-0.

RSC Andylecht had the final say as Jana Ranganathan scored his fifth of the tournament but unfortunately for him the goal could not prevent his team departing the competition. RSC Andylecht were out for this year but there are rumours circulating that they could join us in Krakow next year. It will be great to see them then.


Shamrock Football Club had booked their space in the Plate Final. The two teams set to do battle for the second berth in the final were Team Tapas and Terrible Football.

Team Tapas had qualified for this stage by finishing in third position in Group B. They began the day with two wins but then suffered two defeats before regaining their form with a 4-0 win in their final game. They had a positive goal difference of +8 thanks to 14 goals scored and 6 conceded. This was the second highest goal difference of any team qualifying for the Plate in the Amsterdam Sixes (after Spider Mans & Eagle in 2017 with +11).

Terrible Football's results had been a bit up and down all day. They began with a 1-0 win before 3-0 defeat (against the league winners). They then picked up a 1-1 draw and 4-2 win but lost their final game 4-0. They had a goal difference of -4 and 2 points less than their opponents in the group table. They were the underdogs for this game.

This proved to be a really close game. Team Tapas took the lead through Joni Vargas's third of the tournament but Terrible Football were back level at half-time through Martin Jones. After the break it was Terrible Football who lead 2-1 thanks to Jelle Visser but Team Tapas were back level at full-time through Hendrik. We would need a penalty shoot-out to decide this one.

In the shoot-out Team Tapas were perfect as they scored all 3 penalties. Terrible Football scored their first but missed the next two as they crashed out.
