DHL Prague Red kicked off Group D against Johns Boys. The Czech team were regulars in eurofootballfives.com tournaments with 4 Plate Runners-Up under their belts in the 2008 Prague Trophy, 2010 Krakow Trophy, Prague Masters and Prague Trophy). They would look to use their greater experience in the opening game as they took on debutants from Middlesbrough, Johns Boys.

On the pitch it was Johns Boys who opened the scoring as Andrew Harrow put them 1-0 up. The game could have gone either way as DHL Prague Red would not be shaken off lightly. 2010 Prague Trophy top goalscorer David Asamoah opened his Budapest account for the Czech side but it proved to be in vain as Phil Ward slotted home the winner for Johns Boys as they won 2-1.

 
 
 

Game 2 saw the second Bridge House team get underway as Bridge House Badgers were drawn away to local side Csabagyongye. As we have found out previously in this report, Bridge House Badgers reached the Cup Quarter-Finals in Valencia 2010 so had good form. Csabagyongye were an unknown quantity but look well-matched to their opponents as the teams went in level at the break 0-0.

The deadlock was broken in the second half as Gergo Koczka put Csabagyongye ahead. It was Koczka again to make it 2-0 and secure a good opening victory for the Hungarian team. Plenty of time left for Bridge House Badgers to make their mark in Group D.

 
 
 

The final team to begin their 2011 Budapest Fives challenge was Dyslexia Untied. They were playing DHL Prague Red who were looking to bounce back from their opening game defeat. The game started off with the teams evenly matched and both defences on top. At the interval we remained goal-less at 0-0.

In the second half we needed a goalscorer to stand up and be counted. Step forward David Asamoah who scored for the second game running to give DHL Prague Red the lead. He then doubled the advantage to make it 2-0 and the points were in the bag. Dyslexia Untied had no response as DHL goalkeeper Donald preserved his clean sheet.

 
 
 

Game 4 saw two first-game winners come face-to-face as Johns Boys met Csabagyongye. Each team had the chance to open up a good lead at the top of the table and it was the Hungarian side who looked like making the most of this opportunity as a David Kemeny goal put them 1-0 up at half-time.

In the second half Csabagyongye turned the screw as Gergo Koczka scored his third and fourth goals of the day to extend the lead to 3-0. Goalkeeper Marton Beck kept his second successive clean sheet and the Hungarian team were looking strong. Johns Boys remained in joint second and were still well placed in the Group D table.

 
 
 

Bridge House Badgers and Dyslexia Untied met in the game that would take us to the halfway stage of Group D. Both teams were looking to open their account in terms of goals and points due to 2-0 defeats in their respective opening fixtures. For their tournament challenge it was crucial that the team's got their first win on the board.

On the evidence of the first half, it looked like Bridge House Badgers would be that team as Alex Mitchell scored twice and Arfon Salisbury once to send them into a 3-0 lead by the break. It didn't get any better for Dyslexia Untied in the second half as Chris Andrews (aka Socket) made it 4-0 and Alex Mitchell crowned a fine personal display to complete his hat-trick and make the final score 5-0. Bridge House Badgers moved into second place due to the margin of victory.

Dyslexia Untied were the strongest team in the group as they held up the other 4 teams in 5th place.
