Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has supported our tournaments over the last 13-14 years. Since 2006 we have seen over 110 tournaments across Europe. Tournament #1 saw us kick-off in Krakow in April 2007, Gdansk became our 15 th destination in September 2018 and we were back in Poland again for destination #17 Warsaw. A warm welcome to all our teams, and it was warm, as the teams basked in the late summer sun.

First up on Pitch A was Alea Iacta Est (Pol) versus FC Dad (Eng).

Both teams were experienced in our tournaments and we will preview each in more detail as we progress with this report. These two teams were no strangers to each other as they had come face-to-face in Group D at the 2018 Gdansk Tournament. On that occasion Alea Iacta Est won 1-0 courtesy of a goal from captain Krzystof Kurzeja.

This game was proving just as close as the two teams entered the break level at 0-0. In the end it was a set-piece that separated the sides. A Konrad Kawka free kick earned Alea Iacta Est another 1-0 win.

 
 
 

The first phase of the 2020 Warsaw Tournament would be decided on a group basis. There were 2 groups 1 with 6 teams, 1 with 5 teams. Each team played each other team in their group once and, after which, depending on their position would progress to the Cup (teams in 1st and 2nd), Plate (teams in 3rd and 4th) or the Wooden Spoon (teams in 5th) competition.

We would continue Group A with Sutton on Tour versus Boca Seniors Warsaw. These were two of the least inexperienced teams, in terms of eurofootballfives.com competition, in the tournament draw. Boca Seniors Warsaw were on debut so it was great to welcome them to the action. Sutton on Tour were one of three teams making their second appearance in our events.

With the game underway there was just one goal to separate the teams in the opening period. That goal was from Jonathan Kraayenbrink of Boca Seniors Warsaw. After the change of ends Boca Seniors Warsaw extended the lead through Ariel Guelfi and Marvelous Nice.

 
 
 

The final game of the opening round of fixtures would be contested between two teams who had met before in our tournaments. It was The A Team versus Yac Club. The two sides had met at the 2019 Amsterdam Fives where The A Team emerged victorious, 3-1. Both sides went on to reach a final with The A Team eventually finishing as Cup runners-up, Yac Club (as AFC FYM) finished as Plate runners-up.

In the group phase of our tournaments, The A Team were on a fantastic run. They were on a run of 15 games unbeaten with 12 wins and 3 draws in that period. You have to go back to the Prague Tournament in 2016 when they last lost a group game. That was to CIS Committee of Belarus who happen to be the most successful team in eurofootballfives.com history with 5 tournament wins.

The A Team had won their group the last 3 campaigns and 4 out of the last 5 (only CIS Committee in 2016 stopping them). It was a sizeable task facing Yac Club but they were certainly up to it. The teams reached half-time level at 0-0.

It got even better for Yac Club in the second period. Dave Netherway scored the goal in the 3-1 defeat in Amsterdam and he was on target again here in Warsaw. His goal, combined with a fine team performance and a clean sheet for Mitch Taht, meant all 3 points would go to Yac Club a sensational win.
