Just got back from the game and I cannot believe that we managed to win.
The perfect start, lots of noise from the crowd and we came out firing. Early goal was the perfect tonic. But then the team and the crowd I feel were stunned into complete awe and silence by what I can only describe as some the best passing football i have seen at the Cottage. It seemed that they played at times 2 - 7 - 1 as a formation. Full backs turned into second wingers and we were utterly rocked.
Roy worked his magic at half time and we pressed them higher up the pitch and reduced the service to the front ......... 8. A blistering goal from a happy Bobby and some stout defending saw us take the advantage to Ukraine.
Well done lads and hopefully Roy can find a way to curtail their unorthodox formation for next week.
Also did anyone else notice their team Ukraines at the back and Brazilians up front. The defenders looked like all they could do was pass to each other and then the Brazialians took over with the flair.
