9 was a crucial fixture in Group B as Futbol 7
met Budapest Celtic Pumas. The latter had a chance
to wrap up the title with fourth successive win
and who would bet against them on their run of
form! Futbol 7 were on a nice little run themselves
having won two games in a row to put them in with
a chance of Cup qualification. Their task was
to win here and see if Saipan FC could match them
in the last game.
game remained level for long periods, a result
that suited the Pumas more than Futbol 7. At half-time
the teams were level at 0-0. The longer the game
went on the more you felt this would be how it
the hour, cometh the man though and it can be
no surprise that man was Luiz Naufel with his
13 th and most important strike of the tournament.
His goal was a hugely valuable one deciding the
game, ensuring Budapest Celtic Pumas win the group
with a 100% record, scoring 15 goals and with
goalkeeper Andre Abibe still to concede a goal.
7 would now have to see what Saipan FC could do
in the final game to see if they would play in
the Cup or Plate.
