We began Group C with GSF Drunkerz versus Fritzl Palace both teams on debut in eurofootballfives.com competition and had a blank canvas in which to portray their footballing artistry.

Although on debut Fritzl Palace did feature some eurofootballfives.com experience as captain Ross Annand competed in the Berlin Fives earlier this year for Frank Hirth. Frank Hirth A were Runners Up whilst Frank Hirth B were beaten Semi-Finalists. Fritzl Palace will be hoping for an equally successful European adventure.

They started off pretty well as they surged into a 2-0 lead before half-time as Matthew Wedlake opened the scoring before Ryan Rook opened his account. Ryan Rook made another deposit to his account in the second half as he made it 3-0 and Fritzl Palace were off and running in perfect style.

It was a tough opening game for GSF Drunkerz but there was still plenty of time for them to get into winning ways at this tournament.

 
 
 

Match 2 in Group C saw Shahs of Sunset versus Rat Goblins.

Shahs of Sunset are no strangers to our tournaments since an impressive debut at the 2012 Valencia Fives. They topped their group and qualified for the Cup competition where they lost out to Mestallaban (Ire) on penalties in the Quarter-Finals. In the 2013 Budapest Fives they topped their 6-team group again without conceding a goal to qualify for the Cup. They went to penalties in the Cup Quarter-Finals again but this time won through. Their adventure ended in the Semi-Finals when they lost to the eventual champions, Team Bear, 1-0. At the 2013 Barcelona Fives they finished joint top on 9 points in their group but ended up 3 rd on goal difference meaning they incredibly missed out on the Cup. A Plate QF win was followed by a SF defeat to end their day.

Shahs of Sunset made an impressive start here as they completed a solid 4-0 victory over Rat Goblins. Anes Jusic, Adrian Satue, Paolo Ferrari and Martin Weltman scored the goals.

 
 
 

The last two teams to get underway were The Never Tarps versus Budapest Celtic Tigers.

The Never Tarps were part of the Rigford Seahawks stable. The Seahawks have a rich eurofootballfives.com history. They have previously toured 5 times and have gone home with a trophy on 4 occasions and medals on all 5 occasions. Their haul includes two Cup victories (Krakow Trophy 2009 & Berlin Fives 2012) and two Plate victories (Prague Trophy 2009 & Amsterdam Fives 2011) with Runners-Up Medals at the 2013 Budapest Fives.

The team were playing as The Never Tarps as this was an unofficial Seahawks tour to mark the 30th birthday of Seahawks stalwart Ben Kent and hence the change of name so as not to blemish the Seahawks record. Was this a clue as to how competitive they thought they would be today?

If so, it didn't show in the first half as they went into the break on level terms with the Tigers with Alex Harding on target. A Tobias Gustafsson goal for Budapest Celtic meant it was 1-1 at the break. Chris Jestico was on the mark for The Never Tarps in the second half but goals from Gustaffson again and then Cris Lazarescu ensured it was the Tigers who claimed all three points. Final score, 3-2.
