2010 Krakow Trophy Final would see two teams making
their first eurofootballfives.com finals. For
Hutnik there was added pressure as they were aiming
to become the first Polish team to win this tournament.
Could they make their nation proud?
in their way were Pimp My Side FC who were hoping
to add their name to the Krakow Honours board
alongside Northern Monkeys, Red Light Runners
and Rigford Seahawks. Would glory await them?
two teams proved evenly matched and the first
half came and went with little to split the sides.
Goalmouth opportunities were few and far between
as both team defences were organized and solid
leaving their opponents with just speculative
efforts that the goalkeepers were more than able
to keep out.
game very much looked like it was heading to penalties
and if it had would have been the third final
in 20 tournaments to go the distance. There was
to be one man who would make a difference though
and score the goal that would claim the gold medals
for his side. Just as he had done so in the semi-final,
Azmatys Jacek stepped up in the second half of
a tight game to propel his team to glory.
goal came late leaving little time for Pimp My
Side FC to respond and in the end the clock as
well as Hutnik ended their dreams of glory. As
the final whistle blew for the end of the 2010
Krakow Trophy it was Hutnik who were triumphant
and Pimp My Side FC a valiant and creditable second.
to both teams on a tense and absorbing final and
thank you to all teams for making the tournament
a success. A great night out was had by all courtesy
of strong Polish beer and a private viewing of
the Champions League final. Some heavy heads and
legs next morning but no doubt but worth it on
another great tour!
