We’re back, in sensational style. As per usual. Which probably makes it the opposite of sensational.
Japan Soc were better than expected, considering they drew 1-1 with Gibraltar, but we could and should have won by more. No point in writing much more, we were pretty good, but the wind was a bitch and made the transition from defence to attack more laborious than usual.
As mentioned in the debrief, we know we’ve made it when winning 12-1 doesn’t feel like a big deal.
The only important thing to note is that Sam Fox is now only 4 goals off a 100 total for his Dyslexics career. Bring on Tuesday.
Scorers: George (5), Sam F (4), Matt (2), Sam S
Goal of the Game: Sam Strong’s was gorgeous, a beautiful three pass move that tore through the Japanese defence in a manner reminiscent of Barcelona against Arsenal in last year’s Champions League quarter final. George scored a stunning left footed volley from a ridiculous angle, but he’s paranoid that I’ve got it in for him, and he’s totally correct, so he doesn’t win.
