Cup Quarter-Finals saw the tournament's top 8
teams of the 15 team draw come head to head to
see which team would emerge as 2011 Barca Fives
champions. We had 5 nations still with a chance
of grabbing glory so would it be England, France,
Japan, Hungary or Spain celebrating at 5pm this
evening? The tournament was wide open with 4 or
5 of the last 8 all with a very realistic chance
of taking glory.
first Quarter-Final saw the French team, Luminy
Wolves, take on Spain's Futbol7. The 2009 winners
would have bad memories of a Quarter-Final against
Spanish opposition as this is the exact same stage
they went out to Rapid Bosco Navas in the April
2011 tournament. Early on the contest was quite
close and we wondered if history may repeat itself.
half-time the two teams were locked together at
1-1 thanks to goals from Haikel Ben Khelifa for
Luminy Wolves and Albert for Futbol7. In the second-half
Luminy Wolves showed a determination not to bow
out at the Quarter-Final stage again and turned
in one of the most impressive halves of football
in the whole tournament. Luminy Wolves scored
5 unanswered goals and powered to a 6-1 victory.
Ben Khelifa went on to complete a hat-trick, there
was another goal from Allan Gosselin and a double
for Sid-Ahmed Bouriche. Futbol7 must have wondered
what hit them and sadly their tournament was over.
