2 of Group A was an encounter between Krakowcaine
of Switzerland and Deddington Sea Eagles of
England – both teams on debut.
Krakowcaine were on debut they featured considerable
experience in their ranks in the form of Barry
Lysaght who had appeared in our tournaments
for Saipan FC (Ire), Missing Magpies (Eng) and
was now appearing for the Swiss side. Krakowcaine
also featured Nacho Mochales who had similarly
played for Saipan FC (Ire) and also Me Toca
Tirar (Spa) before appearing for the Swiss today.
was to be no early goal in this one like there
was on Pitch A and in fact no goals throughout
the first half. When the second half kicked
off we did have a goal to enjoy and it came
from Deddington Sea Eagles #8 Mark Cook. How
could Krakowcaine respond?
well was the answer as Michael Zoellner (coincidentally
also #8) scored Krakowcaine's first goal in
Europe and equalised for the team from Zurich.
That's how it stayed and it was honours even,
one goal each and one point each.
