Must win game for the Viking Vets for us to stay at the top of the leader board in Espzen's most important league.
However, we always struggle against Italia82 who - besides playing good soccer - also happen to be a really cool bunch of lads.
The expert tactic from coach Møller was clear from the very beginning: "Guys listen up! We wan't to win this f...ng game and the league. We're unbeaten for 19 games. Let's make it 20. Put a lot of pressure on them for the first 10 minutes and let's get a fast first goal. Oh yeah. And don't forget to have fun out there". It never seizes to amaze us all how coach is able to come up with a new & original pep-talk for every game.
Not much to report about the game. It was back and forth the first 25 minutes and we were lucky to get a goal directly on a free kick.
During the second half, Italia82 pushed for the equalizer, which gave us more space for counter attacks and we managed to pull ahead with 2 more goals.
Yours truly missed a huge opportunity alone in front of the goal but due to a very sharp sun was not able to connect with the ball (I'll stick to this explanation to the day I stop my soccer career)
Great spirit from the side line with a bunch of Vikings players warming up for our annual summer party later the same evening
We wish the Italia82 defender - who got injured late in the second half - a speedy recovery and look forward to our next game. It's always a pleasure!
