Sahura 2 - 0 X-Team

Clouds darkened the skies at Per-Usir as 2737 spectators turned up for the match. Ignacio Pinillos was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jonathan Ariel Vasquez and Hans-Martin Brick. A 5-3-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Sahura. The following players had been chosen: Tharwat - Tsiolas, Uyaynah, Hamdan, Søndrål, Meulemans - Bin-Jaber, Huck, Fayek - Variar, Abd El Fattah.

X-Team tactics involved an interesting 5-3-2 combination. The following players took the field: Leimig - Şnaider, Vânătoru, San Millán Díez, Manolache, Neaga - Liekfeldt, Hereş, Bodeanu - Tiron, Popa.

Sahura were relying on their world class ability to counter-attack. For their match strategy, X-Team had decided to use their world class ability to counter-attack whenever possible. Martin 'Atheling' Søndrål was in the clear after breaking the offside trap following a Sahura counterattack from the left after 4 minutes. His neat finish made the score 1 - 0. Sahura's Sadik 'Cobra' Abd El Fattah was shown a yellow card after 23 minutes for slicing down an opponent. The referee showed X-Team's Alexandru Manolache the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. 27 minutes into the game, Azmi Hamdan had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Fritz Polak. Halftime score was 1 - 0. X-Team had most of the ball, with 56 percent of possession.

Mihai Tiron made a good effort at breaking through on the right, but the home team's left defence cleared the ball to a corner. Sahura almost scored after a counterattack 59 minutes into the match, but Fritz Polak took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side of the net. Mustafa Tharwat left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 60 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Basil Hanafy was the replacement. After 60 minutes, Sahura raised their score by one when Fuad 'The Enforcer' Bin-Jaber's dangerous low cross was cleverly tucked in at the near post by Venkat 'Warrior' Variar. 2 - 0. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Sahura lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. With 70 minutes played, the X-Team coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Yuriy 'Flash' Kolesnik came on, Matei Popa had to leave the fray. 72 minutes in, X-Team's Vlad Vânătoru received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. It might be a while before the fans see X-Team's Ştefan 'The Artist' Neaga again, after he had to leave the field in great distress at the 74 minute mark. He was replaced by Vali Ţălnar. Sebastian Leimig became the new X-Team captain. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by X-Team, with 56 percent of the ball.

Venkat 'Warrior' Variar performed admirably for Sahura. Basil Hanafy on the other hand, had a terrible day. X-Team's top performer was clearly Yuriy 'Flash' Kolesnik. Vali Ţălnar was a disappointment, however. The match ends 2 - 0.
