The 8th September 2018 a historic moment for eurofootballfives.com as we reached our century of tournaments. Tournament #1 saw us kick-off in Krakow in April 2007 so it was perhaps fitting that we returned to Poland for tournament #100. Gdansk represented our second destination in Poland, our third destination in the Baltic region and our 15th destination overall.

 

We had 24 teams present on the day representing England, France, Lithuania and Poland. First up in Group A was Deportivo Dooradoyle (Ire) versus Audley London FC (Eng). These two teams had met before in our events all the way back in 2015. The destination was our Algarve Open event in Portugal. Under slightly different names Drunken DisAudley had defeated Depo Originals 3-0.

Three years on and in the quite different surroundings of Gdansk it was the Irish team who would exact their revenge on their English opponents. The result was the mirror image of that 3-0 with Kevin Shine, Tom Kelleher and Kevin Shine again providing the goals. It was the perfect start for Deportivo Dooradoyle.

 
 
 

Next up was The A Team (Fra) versus Bialoazzuri FC (Pol). The A Team made their very first appearance in our tournaments in Poland back at the 2013 Krakow Trophy. It was a very good debut as they produced 3 wins and 1 draw from their 5 group games to finish second in their 6-team group. They went on to defeat Krakow Team 3-0 in the Quarter-Finals. In the Semi-Finals they defeated Vamos (Pol) 6-1 to reach the Cup Final. In that final they lead 1-0 before slipping to a 2-1 defeat to Budapest Celtic Lions.

The A Team had played 4 matches against Polish opposition with 3 wins and 1 draw. They had scored 15 goals and conceded 5. This looked to be a tough opening game for Bialoazzuri FC.

On the field of play it did indeed prove to be a tough match for the Polish team. France's A Team forged ahead thanks to a strike from Abdesslem Bekhouche. In that 2013 Krakow Trophy, Randy Tchutio was top scorer with 14 goals. He was off the mark here in Gdansk when he made it 2-0 which was also the final score.

 
 
 

The final fixture in the opening round of Group A was FC Shark versus Monaco Tiny Gdanskers.

FC Shark were coming into this tournament on the back of eurofootballfives.com success. At the 2017 Mallorca Fives they were victorious in the Plate competition. Could their fourth tournament with us bring them continued success? They were up against a Monaco Tiny Gdanskers team who were making their debut in our events.

It was the debutants who got off to a flyer as Luke Albrighton scored not once but twice to put them in a commanding 2-0 lead. That lead was reduced to 2-1 when Chris Breen scored his first of the day. FC Shark were soon level when Chris Breen scored his second of the game.

The match was delicately poised and we were to witness a winner. Who would score the goal that would get their team off to a winning start? Step forward Todd Goodyear. He scored the goal for FC Shark in the Mallorca Plate Final and he had scored the winning goal here. Full-time result, 3-2.
