Vikings wanted to turn things around after a below par performance against HIBs last Friday and were hoping and gunning for 3 points against Latini. Team talk from Coaches Lars and Brian were good and we were fired up and ready. Townsend brothers were our main concern, with their good looks, speed, technique and Luke's hairband we had to make sure we pressured them everytime they got the ball. Unfortunately we weren't as ready as we thought. 10 seconds into the game Latini have a throw in from the right hand side, strong arm from the throw in taker - expecting many lonely weekend nights in front of some slightly naughty websites has given him the strength to throw that far - which wasn't dealt with properly by the Vikings defence and an easy tap in. 1-0 Latini. Both teams had decent possession but not very many chances created. Our Norweign beef cake had a hard time with Latini's towering Central Defender on a corner, first he got booked for pulling his jersey ( before the corner was taken ) then on the repeat corner the Defender got the best of our Norweign and headed home a lovely header. Our Strong Kimchi eating Defender Brian was rewarded with a black eye, as he showed bravery in the box heading a ball while Latini's player tried an overhead kick in the box, only hitting Brians left eye. Brian is on the mend and a few 100 dollars down after a quick visit to the Hospital. Vikings created a few chances here and there but mostly shots outside the box, it didn't seem to be our day. The start of the 2nd half was looking good for the Vikings, Clouds were looking extremely dark and one could have hoped for some heavy rain and thunder so we could have a re-match, but Thor and Odin were not on our side today. An amazing fifa like goal from Latini's Central defender where he takes the ball around one of our players and a top quality 100 miles an hour shot from outside the box left our Keeper with no chance. 3-0 and Vikings had lost their spirit. The match ended 4 - 0, thanks to the refs and Latini for a decent game, sorry for not showing up on the day and hope we give you guys a better fight next game.
