Heaven 1 - 2 Grilled

Dark skies made the crowd of 20596 at Olympic Lyons Park a little nervous, but the rain held off. Gerald Mayrleb was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Gustav Sønderskov and Daniel Waki. The match took place on neutral ground. The following players took the field: Kuželički - Chin Da, Samhari, Piazzese, Ho An - Lee, Jamal, Azam Hariry, Yao How, Yun - Mannaî.

The following players had been chosen: Dob - Trung Quá, Webb - Xin Seng, Mudaliar, Ze Han, Parvathaneni, Davlatov - Muthyala, Egan, Mohammad Harun.

Heaven Skys entered the field in a 4-5-1 formation. The visitors, Grilled Birds, chose to start the game with a 2-5-3 lineup. Grilled used their extra-terrestrial ability to concentrate their attacks in the middle of the pitch, rather than on the wings. After some beautiful movement down the left wing, Fraj Mannaî scored for Heaven putting them ahead 1 - 0, after 4 minutes. Grilled players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. With 30 minutes played, the visitors could have drawn level after Kalki Parvathaneni came through the middle, but his shot went wide. The visitors kept the pressure on to tie the game when, after 32 minutes, Kalki Parvathaneni broke through the centre and found himself alone with the keeper. Milovan Kuželički made a great block, though. 34 minutes into the game Grilled's Bernie Egan found a gap in the home side's central defence and scored with a fabulous shot, making it 1 - 1. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Du Chin Da from Heaven a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 36 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Halftime score was 1 - 1. Grilled had most of the ball, with 58 percent of possession.

Moey Xin Seng would have preferred to play on, but his coach decided otherwise. Chu Xin Lee entered the game for Grilled as the match clock showed 46 minutes. It was showtime for artist Chan Ze Han who showed off his technical mastery when he rounded Germano Piazzese and finished with a goal to make the score 1 - 2. Central attacks were the recipe of the day for Grilled, as they moved the ball from the wings to the middle with startling regularity. It was announced by the referee that he estimated stoppage time to be around 1 minute. This meant there could still be an extra attack or two left in the match! Given a free kick in a difficult position after 89 minutes, Grilled tried a variation that they had practised in training. The kick was sent into the area just in front of the keeper. However, the defence were on their toes and allowed no space for a finish. The match ends 1 - 2. Grilled claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 56 percent.

The most dominating Heaven player was without a doubt Ungku Ismail Jamal. However, Goh Ho An made a disastrous appearance. Bernie Egan performed admirably for Grilled. Hoàng Trung Quá was a disappointment, however.
