FCB started with a different lineup from their previous. Hutch, Ed, Macca, Rama and Callum made up the back line. The returning Calum Cant and Sean made up the centre with Luke and Luigi making up the rest of the diamond and Foxy and Joe being the main threats up top. The strategy was simple, make them play out wide or through a well drilled and disciplined side. It worked at Joe pressed on their goalkeeper and forced a big error. 0-1. While FCB did not have the ball for long periods of time what ball they did have was quick, decisive and cutting. The back line coped easily in the early stages and hutch was not tested. This continued until Luigi beat a player and shot from a ridiculous angle only to find the top bin. 0-2. They responded with a free kick that resulted in a free header. 1-2.

Half time 1-2

The half started with the expected theatrics and Oscar performances. The game was stop-start and this played into their hands. The cutting edge was dulled and the final third became a tough area for the Brits. While Bar Castilla’s were not troubling the defence it was a frustrating game in the second half. Some excellent passing meant that their captain got in behind and levelled the score with around 15 mins to go. 2-2. With the scores levelled, the intensity lifted and the referee was blowing up nearly every minute. This culminated in Rama being given a shot to the mouth and the boys in red were seeing red. The referee did nothing but look on and no card was shown despite the infractions.

MOTM- Calum Cant
Miss of the match-Joe Simmons
Quote of the match-Too many to mention, mostly involving that short little arrogant guy for the opposition
