was Cup Final time in Portugal. After 51 games
of football we came down to the most important
of them all. Game 52, the match that would determine
the 2019 Lisbon Tournament champions. Who would
take over from Saipan FC (Ire) as the tournament
2013-2017 we had seen 7 Portuguese based teams
(6 Portuguese winners and 1 Brazilian winner)
until Saipan FC's memorable win in 2018. Today,
the trophy would be staying in Portugal again
but who would take it? Indoorsoccer Café
O Trem or Pangare Futebol Clube?
is how we lined-up:
Café O Trem (Por)
appearance to date: 2 x Cup Semi-Finals (2015,
today: Played 7, Won 6, Drawn 0, Lost 1.
difference today: 14-3
unbeaten run: 5 games.
top goalscorer: Nelson Pinto, Jorge Costa, Fabio
Futebol Clube (Bra)
Lisbon Tournament Champions
Runners-up in Plate competition
today: Played 7, Won 4, Drawn 2, Lost 1.
difference today: 20-3
unbeaten run: 4 games.
top goalscorer: Gustavo Pereira (8)
two teams had met earlier today in Group A and
on that occasion it was Indoorsoccer Café
O Trem who were victorious, 1-0. A repeat would
clearly be just what the doctor ordered for Indoorsoccer.
Could Pangare Futebol Clube exact their revenge
