Clouds darkened the skies at Fort Dansborg as 2497 spectators turned up for the match. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Álvaro Azuaje and Fabrice Singerer. Tranquebar started off with a 2-5-3 lineup. They fielded: Nataraj - Marri, Vanga - Trivedi, Kota, Jindal, Sharma, Panvalkar - Prabhu, Wasif, Reddy.

X-Team tactics involved an interesting 5-4-1 combination. Starters: Leimig - Neaga, Manolache, Secară, Vânătoru, San Millán Díez - Şnaider, Hereş, Liekfeldt, Bodeanu - Tiron.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of X-Team, taking advantage of their world class level with that tactic. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 19 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from Janu Panvalkar, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. Tranquebar's Swaroop 'Moonchild' Vanga got himself booked for a foul. An equalising goal seemed certain after 28 minutes when Dennis Liekfeldt attacked down the left wing, but NS 'Butterfingers' Nataraj just managed to make a save to keep the ball out of the net. Alexandru Manolache finished off the counterattack of X-Team from the left rather easily, making the score 1 - 1. Tranquebar took the lead after 36 minutes as a result of Manoj 'Punjabi Tiger' Prabhu's peach of a shot from the right hand side of the box - placed beautifully in the top corner. 2 - 1. Halftime score was 2 - 1. Tranquebar enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 55 percent of possession.

As the game started to slip away for X-Team, the manager decided to change the tactical approach. X-Team needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 66 minutes Bogdan-Ionuţ Hereş made way for Matei Popa. Unhappy with the result so far in the game, the X-Team manager used a brief break in play after 66 minutes to give the players new directives. 69 minutes into the match the visitors levelled the score at 2 - 2 as Mihai Tiron struck home from a rebound off the crossbar, following a shot from the right. The terraces were silenced after 85 minutes when X-Team's Matei Popa put the guests ahead 2 - 3, following an attack on the right. The visitors' Mihai Tiron took advantage of a misunderstanding between the home side's goalie and centre backs 89 minutes into the match. 2 - 4 for X-Team. Confident in their lead, X-Team's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. The counterattacks of X-Team were deadly and 89 minutes into the game, Emil Şnaider received a nice pass from the right flank, making it 2 - 5. Tranquebar claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 53 percent.

The most dominating Tranquebar player was without a doubt Manoj 'Punjabi Tiger' Prabhu. NS 'Butterfingers' Nataraj on the other hand, had a terrible day. X-Team's best player was Matei Popa. Daniel Bodeanu was a disappointment, however. The match ends 2 - 5.
