United got off to the best possible start and
scored early – it was a crucial goal psychologically
as well giving them the upper hand and the momentum
which would have counted for more than the one
goal. From there ABC United went from strength
to strength as Robert Florin Matei scored a
first half hat-trick. It would take his personal
tally for the day to 8 goals that would see
him crowned as the Top Goalscorer for the day.
Mozacu scored a fourth goal before half-time
and we already knew our winners with another
half of football still to play. The second half
was a bit more even as Boiesan scored his second
of the tournament but then came a moment that
would spoil a record for Paul Stegarescu. No-one
had yet kept 8 clean sheets in a tournament
but Stegarescu was on 7 but Bruno spoiled his
perfect record for the day when he pulled a
goal back for the Tigers. Still, was a stunning
performance from Stegarescu, Matei and all the
ABC United team. Final score, 5-1.
offer our consolations to Budapest Celtic Tigers
who were Runners-Up for the second year in a
row – maybe third time lucky in 2013?
congratulations go to ABC United – worthy 2012
Budapest Fives Champions! We hope to see you
all again at a tournament very soon.
