Clouds darkened the skies at the stadium today. The following players had been selected: La Pira - Alitupa, Preložnik, Drolet - Bollan, Redder, Višniar, Botin, Scrimshaw - Carpio, Thomson.

Lineup: Coenegracht - Taboin, Reis, Vellemäe - Zima, Witcher, Kiszi, Grymov - Amorim, Miranda, Tucano.

Glasgow Bruers started the game in a 3-5-2 formation, whereas Mengo/Várzea Medicine 3012 lined up in a 3-4-3. For their match strategy, Glasgow had decided to use their magnificent ability to counter-attack whenever possible. Mengo/Várzea displayed their ability to play creatively. 9 minutes into the match, Mengo/Várzea nearly took the lead, as Nuno Reis broke through on the right. However, Michele La Pira made the save. 10 minutes into the game, José Luiz Miranda was a hair's width away from giving Mengo/Várzea the lead with a shot from the left. A timely dive by Michele La Pira saved the home team on this occasion. A mistake by the home side's central defense after 27 minutes allowed Derrick Witcher to score for Mengo/Várzea. The visitors have the lead, 0 - 1. 0 - 1 was the score after the first half. Mengo/Várzea set the tempo, maintaining 54 percent of possession.

Glasgow's defense sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counter-attack with 54 minutes gone, but Cirilio Carpio's finish was met by the firm hands of the keeper. After 65 minutes, Tadej Preložnik rushed down the middle past the away team's defenders to score the 1 - 1 goal. Glasgow had a good opportunity to take the lead as William Scrimshaw came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of Raymon Coenegracht. After 82 minutes, Glasgow began to show their lack of experience and they threatened to wilt under the heavy pressure from their opposition. Many thought Tadej Preložnik ought to have been awarded a penalty 83 minutes into the match, as he went down trying to beat Raymon Coenegracht after an attack through the middle gave him the one-on-one opportunity. Slack defending gave Glasgow a chance to take the lead with 85 minutes played, but Cirilio Carpio's cross from the left flank was met gratefully by the opposition who cleared it to safety. Michele La Pira looked great 86 minutes in after stopping a shot by the visitors' Otoniel Amorim. Coming in from the right, Glasgow had a good opportunity to convert on a counter-attack after 87 minutes, but Cirilio Carpio's attempt was easily stopped. The match ends 1 - 1. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Mengo/Várzea would have 53 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Glasgow's top performer was clearly Gennadiy Botin. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Tino Alitupa today. Mengo/Várzea's best player was José Luiz Miranda. Good thing Sämi Zima isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance.
