The Dongguan International Football League has switched venues from I.S.D. to a field in XiPing. Here are some key shots of the games.
Thursday 18th May: Day and Night 0 – 1 You Men Lu
Day and Night finally made their debut after rain had postponed their previous two fixtures, and the boys from Heng Li didn’t disappoint as they put in a display full of heart, grit, and determination. However, You Men Lu are a strong, professional team and from the first minute the team from Xiping took control of possession. Their movement and close control is arguably the best in the league and it was this movement that enabled them to fashion a number of clear-cut chances. In truth, it was only the inspired goalkeeping of (name) that kept the scores level.
You Men Lu’s best chance came 5 minutes before the break, as an excellently taken free kick crashed against the outside of the post. At half time the scores were level with You Men Lu coming off at half time looking frustrated and surprised at the level of their opponents.
In the second half Day and Night picked up the pace and imposed themselves in the game, creating a number of good chances. The game looked destined for a stalemate before the games most controversial moment struck. The Day and Night number 10 Bobby committed what was arguably a soft foul, however, what took place after this tipped the game on its head. The You Men Lu number 3 Zhang Suo Zhi confronted the number 10 which resulted in football ‘handbags’ with players from both teams shouting and pushing each other. After the madness calmed down the referee had no choice but to issue both Zhang Suo Zhi and Bobby with yellow cards. Unfortunately, for Day and Night it was Bobby’s second yellow meaning that they were now down to 6 men for the remaining minutes. If that decision was harsh on Day and Night then the next one was almost criminal. Allowed to take a quick free kick, You Men Lu raced down the left hand side where the winger was able to pass the ball across goal for Li Wei Cheng to tap home the winner.
Down to 6 men Day and Night rallied and had a number of good opportunities to draw level, however, the night belonged to You Men Lu, who were able to get back to winning ways.
