L'Albiceleste claim 2nd eurofootballfives.com title with Riga victory!

The 17th September 2016 marked our Latvian debut as we visited Riga for the very first time. We were hugely impressed with what this charming city offered - a beautiful Old Town, lots of green parks, a great nightlife and value for money beer. In terms of the football tournament, the local teams were very friendly and hospitable to our travelling teams from England, France and Lithuania.

No doubt French side L'A;biceleste found them very accommodating as they put opening game defeat behind them to go on and win their second title (after the 2013 Mallorca Fives). They became the 10th team in eurofootballfives.com history to claim a second tournament win. They saw off a Riga-based team of Spanish & Portuguese via a penalty shoot-out after Leilupe came from 2-0 down to equalise with the last kick of the Cup Final.

In the Plate Final we saw DHFC claim victory 3-1 over a Red Cow Belgrade team who had made a third successive eurofootballfives.com final and left as Runners-Up for the third time. Many congratulations to DHFC who came from 0-1 down to win 3-1. In the third tier Trophy it was another penalty shoot-out deciding victory as Aliance (Lat) saw off FC Maroon (Eng) 3-2 after a 0-0 draw in normal time.

Personal honours went to Cedric Castarede of L'Albiceleste who was the top goalscorer on the day with a haul of 13 goals. He was also top goalscorer when L'Albiceleste (playing as Grant Thornton) won the 2013 Mallorca Fives.
