Celtic were making their eurofootballfives.com
debut and their Lions squad had an incredibly
tough baptism of fire. They met Olympic Phil Babb
who are the only team to have won three eurofootballfives.com
events. They come to Budapest looking to make
it four wins out of four after success in the
2008 Amsterdam Fives, 2009 Algarve Open and 2010
have an incredible eurofootballfives.com record
with a 75% win percentage of 15 wins, 4 draws
and 1 defeat – two of those draws they turned
into wins via a golden goal and penalty shoot-out.
The one defeat came in a dead tie at the end of
a group they had already won. It would be a brave
man to bet against Olympic Phil Babb in Budapest.
Cooper set the English side on their way with
a first-half goal. Alex Woolston made it 2-0 before
Martin Abel pegged them back to 2-1. That's how
it finished. It was a good performance from Budapest
Celtic Lions who were far from overawed and they
would hope for easier games as the tournament
progressed. Olympic Phil Babb were on their way
with 3 good points.
