Franco’s Colleagues At FICO

Sun 21 December 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Even though Franco is out for 3 to 4 weeks, seven of his colleagues made it to FICO this evening.  I wasn’t there, but they were scheduled to line up as follows:

  • Reds:  Damian, Yaseen, Rizal + 2 of Franco’s colleagues.
  • Whites:  5 of Franco’s colleagues.

With several injuries about, the session was initially cancelled, but once Franco got together seven of his colleagues, it didn’t take much more for it to go on.

If a session can go on, it will.

If anyone who played would like to provide a short write up, feel free to do so as a comment below.

    It was a good workout for both sides and it was a tight game which ended 9 all. For my team it was me, Damian, Rizal, Salawat (sorry if i got the spelling wrong) and another mate from Ukraine.. The opponents were all Brazilians and we all know Brazil is a football crazy country and Franco’s Brazilian colleagues proved their mettle. They took a whopping 6 nil lead before the reds pulled 1 goal back. It was 7- 1. Then it went all the way to 7 all. Finally the game ended 9 all. Amidst all the goals, there were lots immaculate and skilful football. At the end of the day, it was a good friendship building session. Everyone enjoyed the game in good spirits. Special mentions to Damian who battled on despite an ankle injury and also all of Franco’s colleague who were sporting and friendly.. Cheers ; )

    Thanks Yaseen.

    … a good friendship building session. … all of Franco’s colleague … were sporting and friendly …

    Which only goes to show that football is a universal language.

    Special mentions to Damian who battled on despite an ankle injury ….

    Damian, do you think you should rest that ankle?

    Whopping good fun! Initially I have to say that looks can be deceiving as when I sized up the opponents who looked quite old and unfit and 3 of them were playing barefeet without shoes! Then came the revelation that they were all brazilians! Then before we knew it they were up 7-0!

    Talk about sublime skills, the opposition were not particularly fit or running alot or even physical, but their one touch and lay-offs and calmness on the ball was very telling…thats Brazilian Samba for you!! But credit to the Reds for not letting it get to their heads and rallying for a fantastic come back! Kudos to Yas for playing the midfield maestro who did abit of “samba’ing” himself 🙂 and scored some crucial goals. Also to Rizal for his tireless runs and also coming back and defending when needed. Although credit for the final and winning goal goes to the water bottle that was in his hands when the ball went in 😉

    Jiv, yeah you are rite, wld u believe it I had the same ball-to-foot block when I was in goal which was agonising!! Arghhh…and my wife was complaining about me limping during our Christmas shopping post the game….that was agonising too! But I got this spanking new ankle guard so see you tomorrow!
