FC (Swi) made their debut at last year's tournament
in Budapest. They were drawn in Group B and
lost their opener 2-0 to JNJ Turkey (the eventual
champions). They then picked up their first
win, 2-0, versus JNJ Maidenhead which was part
of a run of 3 wins and 1 draw from 4 games.
Defeat in their final group game (3-0 v JNJ
Poland) meant they finished in fourth position
in the table. This meant they had a tough Quarter-Final
draw against the winners of Group A and Actelion
FC went out 2-0 to Beeston Operation Leeds (Eng).
second fixture was against JNJ Russia. Actelion
FC won their first game 2-0 but this was surely
to be a tougher proposition. The Russians had
won their opener, 9-0.
it was JNJ Russia who opened the scoring through
Dmitrii Elchaninov. Actelion FC were soon to
be level though thanks to Davide Gruel's second
goal in as many games. Lev Mikheev was another
man to make it 2 goals in 2 games as he restored
the Russian lead. Andrey Sheremetyev joined
the club as he made it 3-1. Lev Mikheev added
another for 4-1.
at half-time became 4-1 at full-time as JNJ
Russia had their second win.
