It was a cold freezing morning. SJFA waiting to hear kick off whistle. First half was really good all players passing nicely and constantly putting pressure on the opposition. Aliabbas (GK) made a few really good saves as normal but unfortunate for him the other team scored from a through ball that led to the goal. We got a penalty but unfortunately Sami (Cf) missed it. However a few minutes later Ali Hadi (RW) gives an assist to Sami who scores a half volley with his left foot to the bottom corner. After a couple of minutes Zia Dewji (CM) passes to Ali Hadi who goes through the defence and scores a banger with his left foot. Then nice passes played by the opposition which lead to a one on one goal. After a few attempts by the opposing team they finally get a penalty, but our great keeper Aliabbas sees the ball going left and pushes out followed by a good clearance. Then they score again. After a while Sami scores a left foot again assisted by Ali Hadi which curls towards the left corner confusing the goal keeper, what a goal. Then once again a good goal by the other team, the score was 3-4. The second half was quite good as well nevertheless giving us a few chances, but only did we realise that we had no fitness which led to 4 great goals by St James Meerkats, the final score being 3-8.
