As we entered the final Round of games it was do or die for the teams in reaching the knock-out stages.

Trinacria A knew their fate would effectively lie in the Trophy competition in this afternoon's knock-out phase. Although a win here meant they could catch BSP FC and Pangare Futebol Clube they would need both of those to lose. Plus, Trinacria A's goal difference was inferior to those two teams.

Indoorsoccer were in a good position to qualify for the Cup for the third time in three attempts. They needed just a draw to guarantee safe progress and could even win Group C with a win (should PSV Hangover slip up).

The game went to plan for the Portuguese and was always in their control. Joao Mendes and Dennis Floro claimed first half goals as they lead 2-1. Xavier Slagmulder scored on the international scene for Trinacria A. After the break Abdulai extended the lead to 4-1. Then came arguably the biggest cheer of the day as Stefano Di Consoli scored a very popular goal to be mobbed by his team-mates. Final score 4-2 and Indoorsoccer were through.

 
 
 

PSV Hangover met BSP FC in the penultimate game of Group C. PSV Hangover had been the standout team in the group and were the only team in the entire tournament to still have a 100% record after 4 games. They were looking to make it 5 out of 5 when they met BSP FC.

It must have been a bit of an anti-climax for BSP FC as Indoorsoccer's win against Trinacria A ended their hopes of Cup qualification and adding the 2018 Lisbon title to their 2017 Amsterdam success. They also had to contend with injury setbacks. PSV Hangover had no such worries and carried on a wave of success they lead 1-0 in this one. Marcin Minczynski scored his fifth of the tournament to give the Poles the advantage.

BSP FC rallied though as Kyle McLellan scored his second of the tournament to make it 1-1. It was still important to get a result for BSP FC as a third place finish (compared to a fourth place finish) should in theory give them a more comfortable draw in the knock-out phase.

The third and final goal of this game though went to PSV Hangover. It was scored by Karol Narojczyk who finished Group C with a record of having scored in every game. His total of 7 was amongst the leaders for the top goalscorer trophy. Many congratulation to PSV Hangover for winning such a tough group and doing it with a 100% record.

 
 
 

That left us with Tysers versus Pangare Futebol Clube to wrap up Group C. The game was academic in terms of which tournament the two teams would qualify for Tysers would play in the Trophy, Pangare Futebol Clube would play in the Plate. However, the two teams could aim for 5th and 3rd respectively to play the supposedly weaker 6th and 4th teams in Group D in the Quarter-Finals of the knock-out competitions.

Pangare Futebol Clube's title defence was officially over when Indoorsoccer won in Game #13 of Group C but they showed no signs of disappointment on the pitch as they put on a performance of champions. They raced to a 4-0 lead at half-time and a 7-0 lead at full-time. It was the second biggest win of the day.

The goals were shared around with William Junior, Junior Pires (2), Filipe Soares de Alencar (2), Wendell Santos and Fabio Merces all on target. Pangare Futebol Clube would indeed finish third whilst Tysers would finish in sixth position.
