Both teams were able to qualify for play off A before the game. It was about girls 18 group 17. Kungsbacka DFF against FC Wacker Innsbruck from Austria. Kungsbacka DFF had the best position before the game.
– Our performance have been up and down, some periods have been better then other, says Tilda Larsson player in Kungsbacka DFF.
FC Wacker had the most pressure before the game. They needed a big win to secure second place in the group. Kungsbacka had four points and needed at least a draw to qualify for play off A.
And the different conditions showed off on the field. FC Wacker pressed offensively and took control of the game. It was a tough game but no team manage to score in the first half. Tilda wasn’t so happy with the performance after the game.
– Their offensive game shocked us a little, we were not prepared for that at all, says Tilda.
Second half looked much as the first. Kungsbacka DFF had a hard time creating an offensive game more then cross pass from their defensive players and were pressed down on their half of the field. FC Wacker created a more organized game and had a close free kick just outside the penalty area.
The game ended 0–0 and Kungsbacka DFF won the group and their play off A starts tomorrow. It’s a completely new team and they have just trained together for a week. Some of the girls belongs to the club but most of them plays for partner clubs. They have gathered the best girls to form a team for the tournament. Tilda wasn’t happy with the game today but is more happy to win the group.
– We’re still trying to come together as a team. It’s getting better each game. I hope we can find one more level for tomorrow. We really need to play our best football to qualify for next round, says Tilda.
*Kungsbacka DFF plays 1/16 final tomorrow (Thursday) against IF Brommapojkarna at Inlag 9.00 am.
