JNJ Russia A (Rus)




JNJ Russia B (Rus)


The Plate Final would see JNJ Russia A versus JNJ Russia B. If nothing else, we knew that both sets of medals (winners and runners-up) and the Plate trophy would be on the way back to Moscow but which set of players would be wearing which set of medals?

It would also mean that we would have a new winner of the Plate competition after Slavoj Consumer (who were unable to join us today) had won this title in both Prague 2012 and Budapest 2013.

This would be the second occasion that JNJ Russia A had played JNJ Russia B in the JNJ Euro Soccer Tournament after they met in the Cup Semi-Finals of Budapest 2013. On that occasion JNJ Russia A won 3-0 en route to the title. It is perhaps a surprise (given previous results in 2012 and 2013) that this is a Plate contest but for that you have to praise the performance and skill levels of the other teams in this tournament.

With the game underway it was pretty tight stuff in the first half and mid-way through the opening period it was Rustam Kecherukov who broke the deadlock with his sixth goal of the tournament. From then, JNJ Russia A were on top for the rest of the half although they were unable to extend their lead. Half-time, 1-0.

At the start of the second half JNJ Russia B equalised through Alexey Gomer. Maybe the A Team were rattled as it was not long before Alexander Betin put JNJ Russia B 2-1 in front and they were certainly in the ascendency. JNJ Russia A pushed forward in search of an equaliser and as they did JNJ Russia B made it 3-1 with virtually the last kick of the game fittingly it was Gaspar Arutyunov who ended proceedings with his 10th goal of the day. Full-time, 1-3.

We offer huge commiserations to our Runners-Up, JNJ Russia A. For today though, we present you the 2014 JNJ Euro Soccer Tournament Plate Winners JNJ Russia B.
