final Quarter-Final was La Briocha versus ZVC
Indoor Gent. It was the Runners-Up from Group
A and Group C respectively so the two teams should
have been well matched and they proved to be so.
was nothing between the two teams in the first
half as they played out a 0-0 opening half. In
the second half we had two red cards (one for
each team) as the stakes and tempers rose but
there was still to be goals. The two teams were
unable to be divided and defences were on top
as the game finished at 0-0.
went into penalties in what was an enthralling
shoot-out. It was ZVC Indoor Gent to strike first
Up stepped Anthony Chimkovitch and as Juanjo Roberto
dived to his left, Chimkovitch pushed it inside
the goalkeeper's right post.
Enzo Rogusa was the first penalty taker for La
Briocha left foot strike to the goalkeeper's
left and the scores were level.
Kenneth Blancquaert was the next man up for ZVC
Indoor Gent and he made no mistake to keep the
Belgian team with the upper hand.
Cristian Manuel Somoza De Illano was the next
man for La Briocha. He struck a right foot beauty,
goalkeeper David Van Der Borght went the right
way but it was hit with such power he couldn't
Michael Ingels, with four goals in open play in
the tournament stepped forward and powered his
shot to the goalkeeper's right no mistake.
Alexis Ferreyre, also with four goals in the tournament
was the man to try and take us to sudden death.
David Van Der Borght made the save and was the
hero of the shoot-out to send his team through.
Indoor Gent had 2 goalkeepers in their squad
a rare luxury. It appears they made the correct
choice for the shoot-out with Van Der Borght saving
the decisive spot-kick. It was a great penalty
shoot-out that had so much drama but commiserations
to La Briocha. Not only is penalties a gutting
way to go out but La Briocha exited the tournament
without conceding a goal we're yet to check
the records but we think this is a first in eurofootballfives.com
tournaments. Congratulations to ZVC Indoor Gent
who were now 2 wins from glory.
