Drunk Perfect (Spa)




Hardly Athletic (Eng)


16:30 on Saturday 10 th October, Barcelona – where were you for the last eurofootballfives.com Plate Final of the 2015 season as Drunk Perfect met Hardly Athletic. It was Spain versus England and with Equipo de Cristhian winning the Trophy it could be a second success for Spain over English opposition today.

Drunk Perfect

Drunk Perfect were appearing in their second eurofootballfives.com Final at the fourth time of asking. They were in excellent form having won 2 games, drawn 2 (one converted to a win via a penalty shoot-out) but did have 2 defeats to their name. They had scored 12 goals along the way, conceded 11 (5 of which were in the same game) and were on a run of three games unbeaten. In their previous eurofootballfives.com final they drew the 2013 Trophy Final, 1-1, before losing out on penalties.

Hardly Athletic

Naranjitos were appearing in their first eurofootballfives.com Final at the very first time of asking. They had 4 wins to date, 1 draw and 1 defeat to their name with 13 goals scored and conceding 9 along the way. In pure statistical analysis Hardly Athletic would the start the game as favourites.

The referee blew for kick-off and the action began – from the start, Hardly Athletic were the team on the front foot and looking to take the game to their opponents. They almost got off to the perfect start when Oliver Green saw his shot rebound off the post. Hardly Athletic would not have to wait too much longer though to make the breakthrough. Tom Nash had three goals to his name already today and he opened the scoring here for 1-0.

Hardly Athletic were in the groove and a slick passing move saw them go 2-0 up with Tom Nash finishing things off to take him to 5 for the tournament. The referee blew for half-time and Hardly Athletic were in control of this one.

A sub-theme of the day was the madcap antics of the Drunk Perfect goalkeeper Mariano Sanz. He was certainly man of the match in the entertainment stakes with the crowd cheering and heckling his every touch – he played up to it in good spirits and it certainly lead to some interesting goalkeeping that Bruce Grobbelaar would have been proud of. In one such moment he conceded a penalty which gave Tom Nash the chance for a hat-trick. Sanz then turned from zero to hero as he saved the penalty. For Hardly Athletic it ultimately would not matter as they saw the game out to claim a fine 2-0 victory.

Both teams had played their part in a great final which was watched by a good crowd on Pitch D. Our congratulations go to Drunk Perfect for a fine tournament as they collected their runners-up medals – it was the second time they had runners-up medals, winners ones next time?

Bigger congratulations go to Hardly Athletic whose journey to Barcelona was a successful one – they had some extra luggage to take home as they claimed their first eurofootballfives.com honours, the winning trophy, winners medals and the crown of…
