30th, Barcelona, a glorious summer's day and the
start of the 2011 eurofootballfives.com season
was upon us. The battle was on for the 20 participating
teams to stake their claim to be 2011 Barcelona
up was 2009 Barca Fives winners, hailing from
France, Luminy Wolves. The French side are unbeaten
in eurofootballfives.com competition with 4 wins
and 2 draws behind them. The team trying to inflict
that first defeat was Smack My Pitch Up of England.
Alas for the latter, the team from Marseille started
strongly and by half-time had opened up a 2-0
lead through Byllel Ben Khalifa and Mehdi Yousfi.
the second half they were ruthless and showed
their opponents no mercy as Aikel Ben Khalifa
(2), Allan Gosselin and Sid-Ahmed Bourriche all
opened their account to complete a 6-0 victory.
Smack My Pitch Up would hope all games would not
be this tough!
