penultimate match was the big one – Policia
Mallorca versus Skidmarks. It meant a previous
eurofootballfives.com tournament winner would
miss out on the Cup. Who would it be?
certainly held the advantage as they only needed
to avoid defeat to secure qualification. If
they did win, by 3 or more, they would win the
Group. I am sure qualification was their first
Mallorca only had one option – to win. They
would need to win by 3 goals (unless Skidmarks
scored) and then a 2 goal win would be enough.
was plenty of tension in the game and at half-time
we were still no nearer to knowing who would
win this match, let alone the Group but the
longer it went on the better it was for Grant
Thornton. The two teams started the second half
level at 1-1 (Antonio Perello Rabasco for Policia
Mallorca, Luke Hatfield for Skidmarks).
the game went on it got more and more nervy
but Skidmarks were relatively comfortable. At
the very end though they gave away possession
from the goalkeepers throw out and presented
Policia Mallorca with two very good chances.
Neither could be converted and Policia Mallorca
was a great result for Skidmarks and their quest
for a 3rd tournament win in as many tournaments
went on. Skidmarks went through in 2nd place,
Grant Thornton were Group winners.
