Powerfull penalty settled the final - Gothia Cup

Powerfull penalty settled the final

With a penalty in the second half, the Spanish team Antiguoko could defeat Coerver Tuning from Tunisia. The final result was 1-0 and Antiguoko became winner in class B13.

Antiguoko started strong with a stable pass and a nick in the ribs at the start of the first half. Then the game was quite uneventful until the end of the first half. Antiguoko started an offensive that resulted in a penalty. Number 6, Alex Alba, stepped forward to the penalty spot and hit a self-confident wrist in the net bag.

In the second half there was a lot of ball on Tunisia’s half-plan. Basically play against a goal, but Tunisia held a strong defense.

The more the match went towards the end, the boys became more tired since they played two matches earlier today. Four yellow cards were distributed during the match and it says a bit about how much emotion that was found on the football field, and not least among the crowd.

As much as Coerver Coaching worked for a 1-1, Anitguoko wanted to expand the lead. The boys fought bravely but both teams kept tight in the defensive.

The team that has scored when the match is over – wins. And today, the Spanish team Antiguoko became the winning team in B13.

After the match, the guys in Antiguoko were so happy that there were joyful tears.

–It felt so nice to put the penalty. It’s absolutely wonderful to win Gothia, says the scorer Alex Alba.
