USA 1 - 2 Sakartvelo

130291 punters turned up at Rolling Storm Arena, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. Leonardo Polignino was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Yossi Pollak and Francisco Velón. USA had chosen a strategic 5-3-2 formation. The following players had been chosen: Davis - McClelland, Bejarano, Kirk, Monk, Blackman - Mcnulty, Hunt, Downing - Sharp, Fierro.

Sakartvelo started off with a 3-4-3 lineup. Lineup: Gogua - Trapshi, Saginashvili, Sofinskiy - Terterashvili, Chachba, Tağıyev, Kveladze - Goginashvili, Nebieridze, Gabisonia.

USA were relying on their utopian ability to counter-attack. USA's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 3 minutes gone, but Argenis 'Yoda' Fierro's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. Sakartvelo's Davit Goginashvili gave the visitors a 0 - 1 lead after 6 minutes with a superb strike from the right. The referee showed Sakartvelo's Mgelika Saginashvili the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. 0 - 1 was the score after the first half. Sakartvelo claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 64 percent.

The visitors nearly scored again after 51 minutes, but a superb save by Scott Davis kept Mgelika Saginashvili's free kick out of the net. Zura Trapshi sailed high above the opponents as he headed in a corner kick from Mgelika Saginashvili after 55 minutes of play, making the score 0 - 2. After this, you could see that the players of Sakartvelo were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. The Sakartvelo players could smell victory in the air. Mukhran Gabisonia wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Beka Narsia after 62 minutes. Mgelika Saginashvili wanted to play on, but the Sakartvelo coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 62 minutes into the game by Koba Neparidze. Tariel Terterashvili left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 63 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Mindia Chikovani was the replacement. Having turned the direction of play quickly, the USA counter attack ended as the ball carrier was brought down violently by a defender after 63 minutes. The resulting free kick was a flat shot into the area just in front of the keeper. However, the defence were on their toes and did not allow the opponents to reach the ball. USA's Benjamin Downing got the home crowd going when he finished off a left wing charge, reducing the away team's lead to 1 - 2. A scuffle developed as players from both sides clashed following a tussle in the centre of the field 68 minutes into the match. After regaining order and consulting his linesman, the referee called Sakartvelo's Giorgi Chachba to one side and produced a red card for the player. William Monk was called on to replace USA's Benjamin Downing after 69 minutes following a nasty collision. USA needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 70 minutes Alejandro Bejarano made way for Diomedes Núñez. 83 minutes into the game, Kyle 'James T.' Kirk had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Ed Dean. Possession in this half belonged to Sakartvelo, who controlled the ball 66 percent of the time.

Most important USA player was Leslie 'Ladyboy' Sharp. Sydney Hunt turned in a dismal performance, however. The most dominating Sakartvelo player was without a doubt Achi Gogua. However, Mindia Chikovani made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 1 - 2.
