FIRST LEG SECOND HALF
TEAM A Dagh (yellow - DOWN), TEAM B Gianni (blue - UP)6.28 (4:33)
" it was Sandro
Explanation: it is an old story, it comes from Rickmansworth'06 WC. Mario was playing Nikos and Nikos was really disappointed for losing that game, in the end he snatched the plug from the game port, cursing in greek something like "PARAMAKAMAKALAPARASBARABOA"Of couse Mario which is a 35 years old -child and a very good mimic, he invented the MALAKA so, sometimes, if something goes wrong, we say it.
In this first leg I made many mistakes undermarked by my "PORCA TROIA". in that moment I said it and someone asked:"what?" and Sandro answered with the english translation "NICE STOP" and then ours "greek" translation of my imprecation. Of course no one understood the meaning but it sounded really nice in that moment!6.40 (4:20) Lockout-424: WOODWORK
Dagh stopped me in his box than started with his classic Lockout attack: his distinctive wait 'n' dribble action. he passed the ball to Barber and he dribbled toward the penalty box, he dribbled a pair of defenders and he kicked a diagonal shot very close to the goal, hitting the post, I liked very much that sound!6.57 (4:04)Lockout-424: GOAL ATTEMPT
Dagh was in hot streak, he reached the right spot to kick the diagonal shot with no goalkeeper but I had the right timing to make a brave slide and clear the box.7.41 (3:21)424-Lockout: GOAL ATTEMPT
This one was a real piece of Kick Off House defending art: Stop on the goal line with goalkeeper gone. Anyway it was clear, Dagh was in berserk mode.8.03 (2:59) 424-424: GOAL! 4-3
at the fourth attempt on his left wing in a row he passed: long and well managed dribbling with Barber, he reached the perfect position to strike the diagonal shot at the Klaus' way.8.40 (2:22) 424-42
4 GOAL ATTEMPT
diagonal cross and header goal was already done but Dagh made an incredible defending header and he saved his goal.9.08 (1:55) 424-424: GOAL! 4-4
This one was a key moment: It was the first clear defensive mistake of Dagh, of course he wanted to clear the zone but instead of to kick ahead he made a perfect cross for my Barber. FINALLY LUCKY!10.26 (0:40) 424-424: GOAL! 5-4
After an exciting midfield action Dagh found the way to reach my goalkeeper, he scored without opposition.11.05 (0:00) 424-424: GOAL! 6-4
Again on the left wing Dagh made a very good cross and he finished with a trap 'n' move.
OVERALL: Very tense and equalized match, I got the first half, Dagh got the second half. 4-4 till 40 seconds to go where Dagh made a great one-two. He deserved that victory.
