United knew they needed at least a point to win
Group B, they could even afford a narrow defeat
due to their favourable goal difference to achieve
this aim. However, I am sure defeat and draw were
not in the ABC United manager's thoughts as he
prepared his team for the encounter with SLFN
Y had the minimum 5 players and it would be a
daunting and tiring fixture that awaited them
as the Romanians had the full squad of 10 to rotate.
SLFN Y would need a point to ensure Plate qualification
but they could still make the Plate even if they
did lose as long as Friedrichschain Rovers did
not win their last game.
quick look at the form book would suggest an ABC
United win and if we had a bookmakers at the tournament
I'm sure they would not have even quoted odds
on a ABC United win – no disrespect intended to
a first half that saw ABC United race to a 6-0
win I am sure the bookmakers would have been running
a book on how many? The final score was 10-0 and
the Romanian team finished the group with a 100%
record, 28 goals for and just the one against.
They were leaving Group B as champions and favourites
for the Berlin title.
goalscorer's incidentally – Adrian Constantin
Neaga (4), Razvan Radu (3), Stefan Munteanu (2)
and Florian Mihai Mihalache.
