Legends earned a good opening point in their first
game and their ‘reward' was a game against CIS
Committee of Belarus.
Committee (Blr) had made the journey to Budapest
again to defend the title they won last year.
If they succeeded in this task, they would become
only the second team to retain a eurofootballfives.com
title after Athletico Do Hollande won the Algarve
Open in 2010 and 2011.
eurofootballfives.com journey began in 2011 when
they became the first team from Belarus to compete
in our tournaments. They showed sensational form
in the group phase winning their first four games
before finishing with a draw as they won Group
B. They were then surprisingly defeated in the
Cup Quarter Finals via Golden Goal 2-1 to Dark
Horses. They returned to action in 2014 when they
competed in both the Budapest Fives and Bratislava
Fives. They were unbeaten in both as they won
had already begun well with a 5-0 win in their
opening game and were on the winning trail again
as Aliaksandr Chaikouski put them 1-0 up. It was
a spirited performance from Peckham Legends and
at half-time it remained 1-0 to the Belarussians.
After the break Anton Galay made it 2-0 and the
team from Belarus moved through the gears as the
Peckham Legends ran out of steam. A second from
Chaikouski and a double from Sergey Polyakov meant
the final score was 5-0.
