Filed under: Events, Footballs — Yatz @ 1:24 am

Here’s another delayed entry..Like I said, damn tired these few days..Got to bed at about 9.30pm..


I entered the MCA Futsal Challenge on Sunday, 19th of March 2006, with my futsal teammates..

*Officials, participants, and nosy people*


It was some kinda nice experience to enter a tournament..Got to know other great teams and lousy teams as well..


The tournament follows the World Cup format..8 groups, each group 1st and 2nd-placed team will advance to next phase, the last 16..


Unfortunately, only a total of 24 teams registered for the tournament on that day..So we were equally divided into 8 gorups of 3..


This has given us an easier chance to qualify for the next stage..


The opening ceremony was a huge one..It was over exaggerated with lion dances, and did a ‘stepover’ pose on the soccer ball..

*I guess lions also know how to shuffle*

*Can you see Datuk Seri Dr Chan Kong Choy.? 2nd from left among the white shirts*


Download videos of those stupid lions

Datuk Seri Dr Chan Kong Choy (correct me if he is not a Dr) attended to launch the opening ceremony..Giving short speech in Mandarin, which I don’t understand..


No one was paying attention to the lousy loudspeaker..Everyone had their own topics to chat, taking pics with their cams, and stuffs..

*They do looked carefree..Nightmares ahead*

*Look at this team here (dark blue/black jersey)..They are just primary school kids*


After the ceremony, we started off the first match against a lousy team, Sungei Way FC or something..The team members are about in the early-30’s..

*Let’s play ball~~*


Not much problem for the first match..We trashed them 6-0..A nice start indeed..


Then we played against another team in our Group A, Sentosa FC..They were quite ok..Nothing special about that match..Ended with 1-1..


Then Sentosa FC crashed Sungei Way FC 7-0..Argh~~ More than us 1 goal..Hence we were on 2nd place..


One of Sungei Way FC player clowned himself, just like a joker..Hahaha..We had some good laughs there..


That’s when our nightmare begun..We went on to the last 16 and played against 7-11 FC (What a stupid name if they are not representing 7-11)


We threw away our lead twice where the opponent equalised to make it 2-2 and forced the game to a penalty shoot-out decider..


Opponent took the first kick and it proved fatal to them..They missed the first kick out of 3 kicks..


And we managed to score all 3 balls..So we advanced to the quarter-finals..


Our opponent, Elitz, is a very well-organised team..I think they played on the field as well..The nightmare came true..


We were humiliated by 3-0 in the first-half, then went on to 5-0 in the 2nd-half..Few minutes from time, Petrol managed to score 2 consolation goals to..We bowed out with 5-2..


Well..Frankly, we were not up to the standard to play against them..If we were managed to beat them up..The semi-finals was not an easy task as well..


Elitz cruised on and won the tournament..At least we have lousy reason why we bowed out in the quarter-finals..
