Karak 4 - 0 Cobras

The 1646 fans in attendance at King Suro Memorial Field were roasting in the hot sun. Kim Lundqvist was the appointed referee with assistance provided by 劉 (Liu) 榮智 (Rongzhi) and Marcus Tømte. Karak had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Zeeshan - Sabesan, Zaman, Jha - Patel, Swami, Mashelkar, Dikholakar, Ghosh - Shetty, Phadnis.

Cobras tactics involved an interesting 5-5-0 combination. They fielded: Petrovski - Cascino, Coulson, Pihema, McDermott, Scuffi - Głuszak, Staples, De Capite, Sadler, Boon -.

Karak were mostly trying to use their formidable skill at attacking on the flanks. Cobras were relying on their brilliant ability to counter-attack. 7 minutes in, Karak appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only solid. 13 minutes into the game, Cobras seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a passable level of organisation. Cobras's counterattacks created a good chance for Jakub 'Grizzly' Głuszak on the right after 15 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. Karak were determined to attack on the wing and their central attempts were constantly abandoned in favour of the wings. Karak were very close to putting themselves one up after 31 minutes as Pranav Phadnis got through on the left. However, his concentration failed him, and he shot wide. Karak had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to focus on wing attacks instead. 33 minutes into the match and the home team took a 1 - 0 lead after breaking through on the left. The scorer for Karak was Rameez Zaman. Cobras's Robbie Pihema was shown a yellow card after 38 minutes for slicing down an opponent. A late sliding challenge from Robbie Pihema was deemed to be his second yellow card offence by the referee, resulting in him being sent off, and Cobras left a man down. Attacking on the wings was the choice for Karak, and they were successfully passing the ball from the middle to the wings to attack. Things were deteriorating for the away team as Karak scored another to make it 2 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for Shailesh Mashelkar after 42 minutes. 43 minutes into the game, Cobras seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to weak. 2 - 0 was the halftime score. Karak claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 67 percent.

The Karak players spent the break getting a rerun of the team's tactical organisation and regained a solid organisation when the game started again. The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that Cobras had passable organisation. 82 minutes into the game, Karak had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to inadequate. With 84 minutes played, Karak's Shailesh Mashelkar almost extended the lead, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. After 87 minutes, Sumed Dikholakar put Karak ahead 3 - 0 when he rose to head in a cross from the right wing. Ivano 'Cunning Stunt' Cascino nearly reduced the lead 88 minutes into the game, but a splendid one-handed save by Aziz 'Adamantium' Zeeshan prevented the attempt coming in from the right flank from hitting the back of the net. After 89 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Cobras found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to inadequate. With 89 minutes played, Karak's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to Sumed Dikholakar he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 4 - 0. After this, you could see that the players of Karak were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. Karak had most of the ball, with 66 percent of possession.

Karak's top performer was clearly Aziz 'Adamantium' Zeeshan. Chellappan Swami on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Cobras player was without a doubt Ova Sadler. On the other hand, Angry 'Anderson' Petrovski's play was disheartening. The match ends 4 - 0.
