1368 spectators had come to The Turtle's Shell this cloudy day. Michael Kessels was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Lucian 'Jardinero' Jardan. The match took place on neutral ground. Sthanke04 started off with a 4-4-2 lineup. The following players had been chosen: Carrillo - Grooteman, Xhelilaj, Saravia, Križan - Pradines, Dárdai, San Martin, Stålhult - Sodini, Toresson.

ebonyi decided to use a 3-5-2 set up. Starters: Paul - Lijić, Alipiev, Rappleyea - Shirazi, Maestre Felices, Hunaydi, Moshweshwe, Aminzadeh - Sundqvist, Zumalacarregui.

Today, Sthanke04's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their world class level with that tactic. ebonyi saw most attack opportunities on the wings, taking advantage of their outstanding level with that tactic. 1 minutes into the match, the referee signalled for a ebonyi substitution. Bujor Chivu came on for Azriel Shirazi. As the 1 minute mark approached, the ebonyi coach decided it was time for a substitution. Sishayi Moshweshwe reluctantly made way for Artur Staroń on the pitch. 1 minutes into the game, ebonyi wanted to bring some new energy to their game. José María Zumalacarregui gave Mats Paulsson a quick hug as he left the field. After 16 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Sthanke04 found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to solid. After 17 minutes, Katiusko San Martin sent the corner kick right to Korab Xhelilaj who headed it sharply past the keeper. 1 - 0! The home side's Edward Toresson came close to extending the lead 22 minutes into the game. His shot came in from the right hand side but William Paul managed to save it with an unbelievable reaction stop. Players in Sthanke04 heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. Edward Toresson increased the lead for Sthanke04 to 2 - 0, getting a head onto a hooked ball from the right. The ball looked to have taken a deflection on the way in, but he's claiming it! 33 minutes into the game, ebonyi seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to inadequate. After 36 minutes, the away team failed to deal with a good exchange of passes on the right, and Francesco Sodini gave the Sthanke04 supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 3 - 0. By now, the players in Sthanke04 felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Mehrdad Aminzadeh got himself booked. The manager of ebonyi was not happy. 41 minutes into the game, Sthanke04 seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a inadequate level of organisation. Leo Saravia received some harsh words from his coach after he acted foolishly 44 minutes into the match, probably out of lack of experience, and almost let an opponent score. The referee showed Sthanke04's John Pradines the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Sthanke04 were determined to attack on the wing and their central attempts were constantly abandoned in favour of the wings. Andreas Stålhult unleashed a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. With 44 minutes of the game having been played, Mats Paulsson received a blow to the hip in a collision and was unable to continue. ebonyi, with no available replacements, now faced the prospect of finishing the game with a reduced number of players. 44 minutes into the match Katiusko San Martin put Sthanke04 ahead 4 - 0 with a truly marvelous free kick. 44 minutes into the game, Sthanke04 had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to weak. 4 - 0 was the score after the first half. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Sthanke04, with 79 percent of the ball.

The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that Sthanke04 had solid organisation. Despite his frustration resulting in the smashing of a few teacups, the coach of ebonyi was able to get his message across, and raised ebonyi's organisation to solid. The Sthanke04 players could smell victory in the air. Katiusko San Martin wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Óscar Caminero after 46 minutes. Zsolt Dárdai became the new Sthanke04 captain. With 48 minutes played, Sthanke04's Edo Križan almost extended the lead, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. It was obvious that Sthanke04 had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. Sthanke04 managed to extend their lead to 5 - 0 when John Pradines cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. 66 minutes in, Sthanke04 appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only passable. Things were deteriorating for the away team as Sthanke04 scored another to make it 6 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for Korab Xhelilaj after 69 minutes. After 76 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Sthanke04 found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to passable. After 80 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as ebonyi found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to inadequate. With 83 minutes played, Sthanke04 put themselves up 7 - 0 when the visiting defenders lost the ball to Zsolt Dárdai, who came up from the left and proceeded to coolly round the keeper and knock the ball home. Zsolt Dárdai wanted to play on, but the Sthanke04 coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 85 minutes into the game by Patrick Leseur. The Sthanke04 captaincy was handed to Korab Xhelilaj. The coach of Sthanke04 was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 85 minutes, David Jiménez came on for Francesco Sodini. Sthanke04 put themselves up 8 - 0 when Edward Toresson broke through on the right, leaving the entire defence trailing in his wake. With 86 minutes played, Patrick Leseur of Sthanke04 fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Possession in this half belonged to Sthanke04, who controlled the ball 80 percent of the time.

The most dominating Sthanke04 player was without a doubt John Pradines. Patrick Leseur on the other hand, had a terrible day. ebonyi's best player was Tuomo Sundqvist. William Paul was a disappointment, however. The match ends 8 - 0.
