‘N Co (Bel) had a very successful debut at the
2017 JNJ Euro Soccer Tournament in Bratislava.
They finished with 3 wins out 4 and secured
second place in Group C. Their only defeat came
against the eventual winners, Cilag Team 1.
They won their Cup Quarter-Final 5-3 versus
JNJ Pinewood before coming across Cilag Team
1 again in the Semi-Finals. The Swiss proved
their nemesis as they lost to them for a second
appearance at the 2018 Budapest tournament saw
them finish just 3 points off the top of Group
A. However, because it was such a tight group
this meant they finished in fifth position of
7 teams. It meant they progressed to the Plate
competition where they excelled at penalties.
They drew both the Semi-Final and the Final
1-1 – both against English opposition and won
penalty shoot-outs on each occasion, both 3-2.
They are our reigning Plate champions.
next game in Riga was against Nordic Vikings.
Klopp ‘N Co would have happy memories of this
game from last year, Nordic Vikings – not so
much. It finished 6-0 to the Belgian team last
looked like a familiar story as Klopp ‘N Co
opened up a 2-0 lead thanks to Jeroen Vosand
Guy Hoskens. Nordic Vikings hit back to level
at 2-2 with a goal either side of half-time
from Markus Johansson. Jeroen Vos put Klopp
‘N Co back in front before Sam Kennis made it
4-2. The Nordic Vikings resistance was broken
as Jeroen Vos went on to complete his hat-trick
and seal a 6-2 win.
