With their first games under their belts it was Round 2 for all the teams in Group A and time to settle in to the tournament.

Deddington Sea Eagles had the opportunity to build upon an opening game draw but it would not be easy against a Big Time Krakow team. Big Time Krakow had looked good in their opening fixture as they claimed all 3 points in a convincing 3-0 win. Another victory for them would represent the perfect start to the tournament.

The first half to be proved a competitive one with Deddington Sea Eagles holding their own for much of it but they were unable to prevent Big Time Krakow from breaking the deadlock. Adrian Paz scored for the second game in a row to give the Polish team a 1-0 lead at half-time.

Big Time Krakow had now scored four goals without reply in the early stages of this tournament but that was to change when Richard van Gerrevink was beaten for the first time. Jonathan Simon Norris was the man to beat him as he scored Deddington Sea Eagles' equalising goal. The Sea Eagles had drawn their opening game and they would go on to draw this one too. Final score, 1-1.

 
 
 

Next up on Pitch B was FC Fylde A versus Cracow United. Both teams were looking for their first goal and first points of the day. Although time was on their side at this stage they would want to break the goal duck and the points duck sooner rather than later.

There was not much between the teams in the first half and, in fact, it would be a solitary strike that would divide the teams going into half-time. That strike came from Nathanial Smithies for Fylde FC A and it was the English team who lead at half-time.

At 1-0 the game was delicately poised and the second goal in this game was always likely to be crucial in the destination of the points. Should Cracow United get it then it was game on but should FC Fylde A manage to claim it they would be well on course victory.

In the end the second goal never came along and FC Fylde A and their goalkeeper Jonny Schofield kept their first clean sheet of the day. The three points saw them climb from 5 th to 3 rd position in the table.

Cracow United could still qualify for the Cup despite two defeats but they would now need to win their final 3 games.

 
 
 

To complete Round 2 we had Projetio Tokio versus Krakowcaine in what was arguably the game of the tournament so far.

The game had barely begun when Rene Jr hit a long distance strike into the top corner. It was a great start and the second game in a row they had hit the front early on. Krakowcaine were soon level though as a foul on Hector Navarro Real won a penalty for the Swiss team. Nacho Mochales took it and scored it for 1-1. Michael Zoellner then turned the game on its head as he scored his second of the tournament for a 2-1 half-time lead.

At the start of the second half it was Projetio Tokio's turn to equalize. It was Rene Jr again and his third of the day already. He latched on to a ball over the top and lifted it over the advancing goalkeeper for 2-2. They were not level for long though and it was less than a minute before Nacho Mochales restored the lead for Krakowcaine, 3-2.

Krakowcaine had some daylight between them and their opponents when Beni Weber made it 4-2. If there was any doubt on where the points would be going this was extinguished when Nacho Monales made it 5-2. It meant Mochales had a hat-trick the first of the tournament.
