Deportivo (Cze)




FC Radbroke (Eng)


After 58 games of football we came down to the most important of them all. Game 59 The 2011 Prague Masters Cup Final.

We were treated to a game that was worthy of a final. The best thing about the final was that as the two teams took to the field it was a 50/50 guess on who would come out on top. Both teams had reached the final with narrow Quarter-Final and Semi-Final wins but had shown a great deal of quality and determination to reach this stage. The crowds lined up on the touchline to give their vocal support to the two teams with the vast majority supporting FC Radbroke.

The crowd got their chance to cheer when FC Radbroke broke the deadlock to take an early lead through Mike Brandon's eighth goal of the tournament. It was a vital goal not just to give them a 1-0 lead but it played into their hands tactically as well. With a lead behind them FC Radbroke were able to control the game and let Deportivo chase the equalizer. When the referee blew his whistle for half-time they maintained the 1-0 advantage.

In the second half it was more of the same as FC Radbroke played good possession football and drew Deportivo onto them. It allowed FC Radbroke to counter-attack and put the game to bed. However, the right counter-attack never quite came to fruition and Deportivo were always able to get back and snuff out the danger.

At the other end FC Radbroke were generally comfortable in keeping possession although there was always the fear they may get into trouble and give possession away in their own final third. A couple of times they pushed it to the limits but were always in charge of the situation. That is not to say Deportivo did not have their chances as they hit the bar and also goalkeeper Marc Lawrie pushed a well hit shot round the post for a corner. When the referee blew the final whistle FC Radbroke danced with joy before sportingly embracing and shaking the hands of their opponents.

We offer our consolations to Deportivo who came very close to winning their second tournament.

Our congratulations go to FC Radbroke worthy 2011 Prague Masters Champions! We hope to see you all again at a tournament very soon.
