    Default The Rise Of The Sammarinese - Game Thread

    The Rise Of The Sammarinese - Game Thread

    The Sammarinese have been working on a project to put San Marino on the footballing map. Twenty Two sammarinese youngsters have been put through their paces to become the future of Sammarinese football. They have been split into two groups and registered to two teams in the Campionato Sammarinese...

    Fiorentino

    GK - (Dieu) Arawn Moridin
    DR - (Goldyrulz) Ben Goldsmith
    DCR - (Zagaluke) Luke Corcoran
    DCL - (Nicka94) Nick Adam
    DL - (Toonbalmy87) El Toono
    DMC - (Shybaldbuddhist) Simone Finke
    MCR (Playmaker) - (5ergio) Alessio Gentile
    MCL - (Bambi Holt) Lukio DiSalvo
    AMR - (Ejldude) Edoardo Lorenzo
    AML - (MightyMariner) Walter Ashario
    Striker - (Plobdork) Plob Dork

    Damagnano

    GK - (Matts) Matt Swain
    DR - (Babaginoosh) Davatzis
    DCR - (Ri916) Richard Marino
    DCL - (TWFL) Giusseppe Leoni
    DL - (Elnaith) Giuseppe Faci
    MC (Playermaker) - (Animosama) Animosama
    AMC - (Larxus) Geraint Alacarde
    AMR - (Duffy) Stefano Duffinci
    AML - (Stothy) Jake Stothard
    Striker - (Slich) Daniel Park
    Striker (Target Man) - (Bergtaur) Scevola Zangari

    The idea is to develop both teams of players to become future world stars and make Sammarinese football a brand name, not only on a club level, but also on an International level. To add a little extra spice to all of this, these two teams will develop a whole new rivalry in football, unlike any other!

    Currently, the San Marino is considered to be the worst Nation in Europe. They are Ranked 207th (2nd to bottom) in the World and have 0 points. The hope is that as the players start to develop, they will be able to bring San Marino up the table and hopefully dominate on all fronts. However, only 11 players can play on the pitch, so there isn't just a rivalry on club level, but a very healthy rivalry on the International front. Players will have to prove themselves to me in several friendly matches and the qualification stages for competitions, as I will base the performances in those games on who will start the big tournaments.

    On a club level, San Marino also has the worst Nation Coefficients. This is probably the hardest task of them all, as we need our two clubs to drive Sammarinese football forward. Unfortunately, games in the Campionato Sammarinese will be rather easy in these early stages, but if we can push on and hopefully get far in the Champions League and other European competitions, we can bring more money to the league and hopefully a better reputation to the other clubs in the far future. We are currently ranked 53rd in the Qualification Places league (Last Place) and we're allotted One Champions League place and two Europa League places.

    Fiorentino, roll out! I'm guessing at least a round or two progression in CL & EC first season, maybe a group stage as well.

    I decided to make it fair and choose two teams that aren't in Europe first season, because there is only 1 champions league spot.

    I was referring to the season when and if we manage to qualify not this one. It seems my assumption was correct

    Gotta love how Gentile started as an agile & fit player. It'd have been better if lady luck smiled on him and granted some more marking, flair & creativity.

    Very satisfied with the roll of the dice on my DR. Looks like he can play 90 minutes 2 times a week without breaking a sweat

    I've made some big changes to the starting CA as you can probably tell, it was the only way to get the stats to come out how I wanted them, although some are a little bit higher than intended, but I think it's fine

    Here's to a good battle for the future number one spot for San Marino, Dieu may the best goalie triumph.

    All 17's for Penalty Taking, Finishing, and Composure, with 20 Determination thrown in to top it off for Park. Looks like Damagnano won't have any trouble converting those pesky spot kicks. (I have no idea if determination helps with penalties, but I suppose it can't hurt)

    Friendly Match - Domagnano Vs Fiorentino

    I've decided to give you a little taster and start off our very first match with a friendly between our two teams

    First Half

    Not much happened in the first half, apart from Fiorentino's obvious dominance in possession. They ended the half with 61% of possession and had several shots on goal. Domagnano have only had two shots on target so far, but had a very good chance with a great save from Arawn Moridin.

    Injury: Scevola Zangari

    Second Half

    50th Minute: Edoardo Lorenzo makes his way into Domagnano's area after a spell of possession dominance, but Richard Marino goes in hard and Lorenzo goes down under the challenge! The Fiorentino players look towards the referee... PENALTY!!!

    51st Minute: Nick Adam steps up to the spot to take the penalty... Will Swain go the right way??? Adam smashed the ball low into the bottom right corner... GOALLLLLL!!! 1 - 0 Fiorentino!!!

    56th Minute: A horrible pass from DiSalvo hits his own player and bounces back towards his own goal! Duffinci picks up the ball and it's three vs two! Duffinci takes it out wide and puts in a fantastic cross which Park hits on the volley into the bottom left hand corner!!! GOALLLL!!! Park with a fantastic goal and a fantastic cross from Duffinci! Domagnano 1 - 1 Fiorentino!

    71st Minute: A great chance for Park from a fantastic through ball by Alacarde, but a fantastic save from Moridin! It wouldn't have counted anyway as the flag goes up for offside.

    85th Minute: Stothard steps up to take the corner... RICHARD MARINO!!! Brilliant header and what a way to make up for giving away the penalty earlier in the match! Domagnano 2 - 1 Fiorentino!

    91st Minute: Nick Adam goes so close with a header from the corner, but it just grazes the bar!!!

    FULL TIME!!! DOMAGNANO 2 - 1 FIORENTINO!!!

    Man of The Match: Richard Marino
    Domagnano Possession: 42%
    Fiorentino Possession: 58%

    Hmm, I kinda like my stats, though a bit more stamina and composure would have been lovely.. What are the clubs' facilities like, btw?

    The facilities are top class, but our coaches are rubbish at the moment. We will get better coaches as we progress.

    Well it's too early to say at the moment as we have only played one game, but some of the passing from Animosama was good to watch, but I think we need to wait till everyone starts reaching their peak to see how good they are.

    I'm really not too sure right now as I haven't completed a full season yet, but the Campionato Sammarinese starts in two groups. One group of 8 and one group of 7. I think it splits into a play-off eventually for the European spots.

    yes! what a way to makeup for the penalty! man of the match as well! made my guy to score headers from set pieces (hope they've been set to go to me ;) ) a suggestion i have is that we ask to have certain stats trained. no effort on your part just us asking ;)

    I was already thinking this, along with being allowed to choose a preffered move to train or remove once per season.

    San Marino Vs Peru - Friendly

    I've decided to pick Peru as our first major challenge in International football. Peru are currently Ranked 26th in the World, so if we manage to some how get a result, we could end up with some big points!

    Geraint Alacarde picked up a Twisted Ankle and has had to be replaced for this friendly match. He will be out injured for 5 - 6 weeks.

    Formation: 4-1-1-2-2

    GK - Matt Swain
    DR - Davatzis
    DC - Nick Adam
    DC - Richard Marino
    DL - Giuseppe Faci
    DMC - Simone Finke
    MC - Animosama
    AMR - Edoardo Lorenzo
    AML - Walter Ashario (C)
    ST - Scevola Zangari
    ST - Daniel Park

    Match Report

    First Half...

    17th Minute: Animosama finds himself with the ball 25 yards out and a clean look on goal! He smashes the ball and it deflects off a Peru player, but the Peru goalkeeper is equal to it.

    21st Minute: Giuseppe Faci with a disgracefull pass puts Claudio Pizarro through on goal, one vs one! Pizarro hits it low in the bottom right hand corner... WHAT A SAVE BY SWAIN!!! Animosama reacts quickly to take control of the ball, passes back to Swain and he clears the ball up field!

    35th Minute: A fantastic lobbed ball from Peru and Pizarro is clear through! Swain does all he can to make himself look big and thankfully puts Pizarro off as he smashes it inches wide! That was lucky!

    36th Minute: Guerrero and Pizarro are running the defence ragid and are playing one-two's with one another. Finally Pizarro puts the ball through and Guerrero smashes it low... ANOTHER BRILLIANT SAVE BY SWAIN! But it's not over... Pizarro swoops on the ball... It's an open net and he just slots it in with ease. Goal to Peru - San Marino 0 - 1 Peru

    40th Minute: Animosama whips the ball out wide to Faci, he takes it up the wing and smashes the ball across the face of goal! Ashario goes for the volley... Inches from the crossbar! Good stuff and a good response from San Marino!

    45+2 Minutes: A cross from Peru and Cruzado gets his head on it... An Instinctive save!!! Swain is on top form here!

    Second Half...

    47th Minute: Triple Substitution...

    Animosama Off, Lukio DiSalvo On
    Edoardo Lorenzo Off, Stefano Duffinci On
    Daniel Park Off, Plob Dork On

    47th Minute: Edoardo Lorenzo is about to make his final contribution with this Free Kick! He steps up...
    GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! Edoardo Lorenzo swipes the ball in to the top left hand corner!!! 25 yards out! San Marino 1 - 1 Peru

    64th Minute: Substitution...

    Walter Ashario Off, Jake Stothard On

    82 Minute: Guerrero puts the ball through for substitute Fano, he's one on one...
    Goal to Peru - San Marino 1 - 2 Peru

    92nd Minute: A HUGE mistake from Peru as they give the ball away cheaply, Stothard picks it up and smashes it forward... Plob Dork is through on goal! Acasiete fouls Plob Dork from behind...
    Red Card. That could have been the chance, but Acasiete took one for the team... The free kick comes to nothing.

    Full Time...

    Match Stats to come later...

    Well at the moment the only player guaranteed a start in the next line up is Matt Swain, but there's a good chance Stothard will start, because i'm just experimenting He's on the bench right now anyway.

    Make sure you check back regularly when I post match information, because i'll be updating that post as the match is being played 1st half is already up!

    Huh, good to see I wasn't injured for that long thanks to the friendly. Nice to get a cap, not shocked we didn't get a result against Peru, but at least we kept it close.

    Looks like a good debut, and probably MOM, shame the efforts got us 2-1 defeat, when we looked good, but now hoping to cement my place as San Marino number 1 after that performance

    Just so you know, I will only be doing these full match reports on important matches, which includes all International Matches, for now whilst we are a small country in terms of rank and matches between Domagnano and Fiorentino. The other league matches are very low key and I expect big scores, so I will just post the results.

    San Marino Vs Peru Match Stats

    Possession
    - 41%

    Matt Swain 5.8 - Bit confused by this as he played extremely well in my eyes and kept it close with 3 top class saves, was a 7.5 at least in my eyes.
    Davatzis 6.4 - Probably just about right, the whole defence was a shambles at times.
    Nick Adam 6.7 - Unsure at such a score, but the game is a bit strange.
    Richard Marino 6.7 - Same as the above...
    Giuseppe Faci 6.7 - Was probably slightly better than the other defensive players.
    Simone Finke 6.9 - Played ok, but could be better, but it's early days.
    Animosama 6.8 - Played well in my opinion, was a big part of most build ups. Was subbed only due to fitness.
    Edoardo Lorenzo 7.4 - Was struggling to make an impact and was already confirmed to be subbed, but scored a free kick just in time.
    Walter Ashario 6.7 - Struggled just like Edoardo Lorenzo.
    Scevola Zangari 6.7 - Wasn't getting much service, so wasn't to blame.
    Daniel Park 6.1 - Lost the ball often and didn't connect well with Zangari.

    Sub - Stefano Duffinci 6.7 - Played much better than Edoardo Lorenzo, good substitute.
    Sub - Plob Dork 6.7 - Had a fantastic chance to steal the draw, but was brought down in a desperate attempt, resulting in the red card for the opposition.
    Sub - Lukio DiSalvo 6.3 - Not the best of days for Lukio.
    Sub - Jake Stothard 6.5 - Maybe he needs more time on the pitch to prove himself.

    Holland V San Marino - European Championship Qualifier

    Holland are the current World Number 1! There is no doubt we are going to lose here, but I hope we can give them a run for their money! Unfortunately, fitness isn't on our side and the side i've picked is only based on the fitness of each player.

    I've gone with the Tic-Tac type of play, just to see if we can keep hold of the ball and restrict Holland.

    Here's the current situation... We will definately not qualify.

    Formation: 4-1-2-2-1

    Gk - Matt Swain
    DR - Davatzis
    DC - Richard Marino
    DC - Luke Corcoran
    DL - El Toono
    DMC - Simone Finke
    MCL - Lukio DiSalvo
    MCR - Animosama
    AML - Jake Stothard
    AMR - Stefano Duffinci
    ST - Plob Dork


    Match Report - First Half...

    3rd Minute: Holland are already showing their intent with an early break from Robben who uses his pace and whips in an inviting cross. Kuyt gets to the ball and hits the post... What a let off!

    10th Minute: WHAT A GOALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! Absolutely amazing from Jake Stothard! He took the ball down the left hand side and decided to cut into the box with some great trickery. He heald the ball for as long as he could and eventually released a magnificent pass to Simone Finke who smashed it low into the bottom left hand corner from near the penalty spot! Holland 0 - 1 San Marino!!!

    12th Minute: Some great defending by Marino, clearing another cross from Robben. Robben is definately causing problems with his pace.

    16th Minute: Animosama picks up a Yellow Card after chasing down Sneijder and fouling from behind.

    31st Minute: San Marino work their way forward and Simone Finke picks up a ball from Animosama who quickly finds the through ball for Plob Dork, but he doesn't accelerate fast enough and the defender catches up... Wasted chance.

    32nd Minute: Robben has been a constant threat and runs from his own half, blazing past every player... He crosses the ball across the face of the goal...
    Goal by Kuyt, he made no mistake with that one! Holland 1 - 1 San Marino

    45th Minute: Robben is at it again! He puts in a great cross again, but El Toono will be delighted with his acrobatic clearance! The ball comes back though and Sneijder puts a high ball into the box which is met by Robben and he hits the crossbar!

    Second Half...

    53rd Minute: San Marino are having to withstand some very heavy pressure and it's a corner to Holland. Sneidjer puts the cross to the back post which is met by Vlaar. FANTASTIC REACTION SAVE! Matt Swain is at it again!

    Substitute: Edoardo Lorenzo On - Stefano Duffinci Off
    Substitute: Scevola Zangari On - Plob Dork Off

    63rd Minute: Finke puts a fantastic ball over the top, but the Holland keeper reads it and Holland get a huge let off as Edoardo Lorenzo was clear through!

    64th Minute: An instant reply from Holland's big scare! Van Persie was inches from scoring, but Matt Swain stole it from his feet, fumbling the ball in the process, but is cleared by Corcoran!

    69th Minute: Jake Stothard picks up a Yellow Card.

    71st Minute: Robben picks up a lose ball and runs down the wing, putting in a great cross which is met with ease by Sneijder... Holland 2 - 1 San Marino.

    75th Minute: Sneijder with another fantastic shot is well saved by Matt Swain.

    76th Minute: Holland 3 - 1 San Marino... Matt Swain had no chance as Sniejder blasts a screamer from 20 yard! I have to say... What a goal!

    82nd Minute Holland 4 - 1 San Marino... We did well to hold out this long, but it's starting to fall apart now. It's simply pin point accuracy and pace that is going against us.

    Your predecessor sure put you in a big hole for the qualifiers Hopefully Park can get his stamina higher so he can stay on the field longer and produce. Was nice to see the team hold Holland off for 70 minutes, too bad about the finish though

    Happy to have captained the country We were so close with Peru, hopefully we can pick off any smaller nations before challenging the big ones.

    You are right, we went into the match with a lot of players on low fitness, which restricted my selection a lot and I had to basically accept defeat before we even played, but we played very well defensively and had some chances. We also scored our first ever goal in qualification which is a good thing

    We have some smaller Nations to play against this season, but I wanted to start with Peru, just to test out how we could play against a team like that. The Euro qualification matches I obviously have no say in and it was unfortunate we had to play Holland who are World #1...

    TM: I curious to know about your though process when you choose who gets to play on the national side. How do you pick your players?

    Dieu, I know your worried about Arawn Moridin not getting in the action yet, but don't worry he will be starting the next match. In the Peru game, I picked players based on a mixture of Fiorentino and Domagnano players. There wasn't anything else I could base my selection on really. In the Holland game, my selection was totally based on fitness and a lot of players were very low on fitness, including Arawn Moridin. I knew Holland would probably smash us, but I wanted the best chance and fitness was the way forward, which was proved for holding out for 70 minutes. If Matt Swain was low (he was 100%), then your player would have played (You was 83%).

    At the moment, all my decisions will be based, firstly on formation; are we using an AMC or a DMC? Secondly on fitness, depending on the quality of the opponent and thirdly on who hasn't played as much; if a player hasn't played as much as his opposition (Arawn Vs Swain), then Arawn would normally get the call up.

    In the big tournaments, I will be going off performances and fitness. If your player performed better than Matt Swain during qualification and friendlies, then he will be the priority to start, depending on fitness.

    So as I say, don't worry, Arawn Moridin will get plenty of chances

    No worries TM, I was just curious about what criteria you used when picking players. It really had nothing to do with Moridin.
    Ok it had a little bit to do with him but it was mostly curiosity.

    It's a big struggle right now against Sweden and Moridin is having a hard time from Ibrahimovich

    San Marino Fixture List

    7th September - 16th Novemeber...

    Euro Qual - San Marino Vs Sweden - Ranked 20th (7.9.2011)
    Friendly - San Marino Vs Poland - Ranked 63rd (8.10.2011)
    Euro Qual - Moldova Vs San Marino - Ranked 98th (12.10.2011)

    San Marino Vs Sweden - European Championship Qualifier

    It's another day and another game! They are coming thick and fast right now and that's how we like it! (I know what some of you are thinking!).

    Build Up

    Swedish Media have rubbished San Marino's chances of a miracle victory or draw. I say, all the pressure is on Sweden! World #20 and they will need to perform to make sure we dont stump them! This match is being labelled as one of the biggest miss-matches of the season.

    Giuseppe Faci insists San Marino have what it takes to shock Sweden and beat them on Wednesday night! Faci believes that Sweden are too confident and that could come back to haunt them.

    Initial Squad Selection Policy

    I will be looking first, at players who haven't had much game time or none at all and looking to give them a chance to shine. Secondly, I will be looking at fitness as this is a big match and we will need to be fit enough to get a decent result, even if we do lose.

    Squad To Face Sweden

    Gk - Arawn Moridin
    DR - Ben Goldsmith
    DC - Giusseppe Leoni
    DC - Nick Adam
    DL - Giuseppe Faci
    DMC - Simone Finke
    MC - Alessio Gentile
    AMR - Edoardo Lorenzo
    AML - Walter Ashario
    STR - Daniel Park
    STL - Plob Dork

    Sub - Matt Swain
    Sub - El Toono
    Sub - Lukio DiSalvo
    Sub - Scevola Zangari
    Sub - Luke Corcoran
    Sub - Stefano Duffinci
    Sub - Jake Stothard

    Captain - Walter Ashario
    Playmaker - Alessio Gentile
    Target Man - Plob Dork

    Match: First Half

    4th Minute: Lustig gets lucky with a cross that deflects off a San Marino player... Just our bad luck as Larsson is right on top of it to slot into the net. San Marino 0 - 1 Sweden

    5th Minute: Straight from kick off San Marino work the ball forward and with some great passing on show... Alessio Gentile slots the ball through and Plob Dork has a chance at an angled shot, but it's well saved by Wiland! Good chance and great response!

    11th Minute: Corner to San Marino! Ashario whips the ball in, Daniel Park is inches from connecting! It floats past and Leoni gets his head to it!!! Fantastic reflex save by Wiland!!! Unlucky for San Marino!

    12th Minute: This is so unlucky... San Marino 0 - 2 Sweden... Elm picks up the ball and Ibrahimovich uses pace and takes it around Arawn Moridin before slotting home.

    17th Minute: This is end to end stuff and San Marino are unlucky! Ashario picks up the ball and carries it forward, he picks out Park who tries to find an angle for a through ball, successfully putting Plob Dork through, but his shot is well saved yet again by Wiland. This keeper is on fire unfortunately! The corner comes to nothing.

    23rd Minute: Faci takes a throw in close to Swedens area, Ashario smashes it across goal and Goldsmith connects with a beautifull shot! HE HITS THE POST! Fantastic strike on the volley, but that is just our luck so far...

    24th Minute: Pressure is on and Sweden are struggling to cope... Goldsmith picks up a loose ball and brings it forward before passing inside to Gentile who goes for glory from 20 yard! Fantastic save...

    25th Minute: Confusion for Sweden as the corner is put in to a dangerous area, but they manage to scramble it away, despite a decent shot from Plob Dork which is blocked.

    26th Minute: Sweden are playing keep-ball after a few nervy minutes, but Goldsmith slides in and clears it out.

    27th Minute: Sweden have the throw and take it quickly to Ibrahimovich who smashes it, curling it's way in! Arawn Moridin scrambles across the goal and its a finger tip saves! Gentile clears the stray ball!

    28th Minute: Plob dork picks up the throw in and carries it forward, making space for the through ball again! Park is through on goal... INCHES WIDE! This is heart stopping stuff!

    35th Minute: Game Over... San Marino 0 - 3 Sweden. Sweden get the ball into Ibrahimovich, Moridin saves well, but it's a scramble with the loose ball and Guisseppe Leoni puts it in his own net!

    39th Minute: Ibrahimovich hits the crossbar from a well struck shot... San Marino players are looking dishartened right now.

    Second Half

    All the players are fire-up from the half-time teamtalk. Lets hope they respond on the pitch...

    Substitutes...

    Daniel Park Off - Scevola Zangari On
    Edoardo Lorenzo Off - Stefano Duffinci On
    Plob Dork Off - Lukio DiSalvo On

    Formation Change: Tic-Tac Barca

    We are going to try and control possession now and try to keep the score reasonable.

    46th Minute: Ibrahimovic is through yet again and he's one on one with Moridin... Only one outcome... San Marino 0 - 4 Sweden

    55th Minute: Ashario picks up the ball and passes across to Duffinci, who is unselfish and passes through to Zangari, but Zangari goes for a first time shot and misses by miles! He should have taken a few more touches if you ask me...

    70th Minute: Larsson fouls Nick Adam in the penalty area after out pacing Larsson to the ball, but he gets away with it and slot it passed Moridin. Moridin is having a torrid time... San Marino 0 - 5 Sweden

    71st Minute: San Marino get the ball forward quickly, with some good passing. Faci picks out Ashario who moves outward and swings in a top class cross! Duffinci hits it on the volley and hits the post!!! Story of the day...

    76th Minute: GOALLLLLLLLLL!!!! Ashario moves into the area, passes back out to Faci, Faci picks out Finke who is running in, Finke back to Faci! Faci back to Finke! Finke passes across to Gentile who has a clear shot on goal! He SMASHES the ball into the bottom left hand corner, the keeper had no chance! YA JUST DONT SAVE THOSE! San Marino 1 - 5 Sweden A well deserved goal and a bit of luck for a change...

    77th Minute: San Marino are revitalized!!! Faci smashes it goalwards after some great passing and it deflects to Ashario's feet... Ashario smashes it back at goal and hits the post!

    Full Time... San Marino 1 - 5 Sweden

    My Verdict - I believe we were very unlucky and the scoreline didn't reflect our hard work... We hit the post about 3 times and had several more chances, but luck was definately on Sweden's side as nearly every shot went in the back of the net. Arawn Moridin didn't have the best of games, but can't be fully to blame as our defence was really bad once again.

    If you read the match report and look at the match stats, you will see how unlucky we were and 5 - 1 wasn't our fault

    Dieu, I'd just exited out and refreshed and saw your post That's how I posted so quick

    Sweden Keeper, Wiland, got an 8.6 rating. We obviously gave him a hard time!

    Gentile was looking active in the first half and he grabbed the result of his work, even though I thought an assist was more likely than a goal Really unlucky to lose 5-1 considering we put some serious pressure on them. We are shpaing up to be a good team I'd say, bring on the future already

    5 clear cut chances and a bunch of other chances means we're at least making good passes. Given a bit more growth, and familiarity, we'll get there soon.. =)

    We got a real trashing there
    And Moridin did not perform either. Will not defend a place in the team if he keeps performing like that. Cuirous as to what rating he got.

    You got a 6.2 rating, but we've got to remember the age and Current Ability of our players isn't close to that of Sweden's.

    In time we will get better

    I would say that a rating of 6.2 is not bad at all considering we conceded 5 goals!
    And as you said, our players are hardly developed at this time. We will improve a lot in the next few seasons me thinks.

    Breaking News

    El Toono has suffered a Torn Groin Muscle. Unfortunately, he will be out for the next 3 months. This will be a huge blow for Fiorentino and San Marino.

    San Marino Vs Poland - Friendly Match

    Poland are currently ranked 67th in the world, so this is going to be a tough test, but I believe that despite our result against Sweden, we have taken big steps. I think we have a 30% chance of winning this match, but we shouldn't be dishartened if we lose.

    Match Day Line Up

    GK - Arawn Moridin
    DR - Ben Goldsmith
    DC - Luke Corcoran
    DC - Giusseppe Leoni
    DL - Giuseppe Faci
    DMC - Simone Finke
    MCR - Alessio Gentile
    MCL - Animosama
    AMR - Edoardo Lorenzo
    AML - Walter Ashario
    ST - Plob Dork

    Captain: Walter Ashario
    Playmaker: Alessio Gentile

    First Half

    12th Minute: Jelen picks up a loose ball as San Marino fail to clear their lines. He moves towards goal and smashes it low... Great save from Arawn Moridin!

    20th Minute: San Marino get lucky as Blaszczykowski puts a very dangerous cross into the box, but Murawski couldn't get enough on the end of it.

    26th Minute: San Marino work their way forward and Animosama puts in a pin point accuracy through ball for Plob Dork, he shoots and it's well saved. The pressure is still on as Goldmsith picks up the clearance, passes to Gentile who puts a nice ball across to box for Plob Dork, but another good save by the Poland Keeper.

    30th Minute: A fantastic cross from the Poland player heads for Blaszczykowski who hits it first time, blocked by Faci, but it lands back to Blaszczykowski and he makes no mistake with the follow up. San Marino 0 - 1 Poland. San Marino have been very flat so far.

    38th Minute: A good bit of movement from San Marink and Gentile gets off a curling shot from 20 yards. Good save from the Poland goalkeeper.

    43th Minute: A massive let off as Jelen Pounces on a ball 2 yards away from goal, but Leoni threw himself infront of the ball as Jelen hits it. He could be the hero if San Marino pull off a result!

    Second Half

    Making a few changes as I wasn't impressed with what I saw in the first half. It's still only 1 - 0, but we need to start creating chances. I've changed the formation and made the substitutes to fit the formation. Luke Corcoran has had a shocking game, so he will be replaced.

    Formation Change: 4-1-1-2-2

    Substitutes...

    Luke Corcoran off - Richard Marino On
    Animosama Off - Daniel Park On

    58th Minute: Finke makes a fantastic tackle to retrieve the ball. He passes straight to Edoardo Lorenzo, with plenty of space in front of him, it's a 4 v 4! Lorenzo moves forward and puts a long ball over the top for Ashario... Ashario smashes the ball across the box, but it is cut out by the Poland defender. It's out for a throw in... Faci takes the throw in straight to Plob Dork, Dork to Ashario, back out wide to Faci who has made a great run, Faci with the best cross of the game!!! LOOOORENZOOOOOO!!!! That was all about the cross, he put it on a plate for Lorenzo! San Marino 1 - 1 Poland!

    61st Minute: A good ball over the top from Finke lands kindly for Lorenzo, but he is brought down instantly by a Poland player, who picks himself up a Yellow Card. Lorenzo puts the free kick into the box, but it is cleared back out to Lorenzo. A Poland player challenges Lorenzo for the ball and appears to foul him, but the referee waves play on... Lorenzo is down injured!

    Substitute...

    It appears that it is only a knock for Edoardo Lorenzo, but i'm not taking any chances and I've replaced him...

    Edoardo Lorenzo Off - Stefano Duffinci On

    70th Minute: Goldsmith with the throw in, Leoni picks up the ball, he passes over to Duffinci, Duffinci takes one touch and passes to Gentile, Gentile passes first time through the defence! Plob Dork is clear through!!! Plob Dork Rounds The Keeper!
    GOALLLLLLLLL!!! San Marino 2 - 1 Poland!!!

    75th Minute: Plob Dork is put clear down the left hand side, he has miles of space to run into! He brings it to the edge of Polands box and smashes it across! Daniel Park scores!!!
    GOALLLLLLLL!!! San Marino 3 - 1 Poland. San Marino are running riot now! Fantastic cross by Plob Dork and Daniel Park only needed to get something on the ball to finish it!

    82nd Minute: Some fantastic attacking movement from Plob Dork and Daniel Park as they one-two with each other and almost pick up the 4th goal! Unlucky that time!

    84th Minute: Plob Dork finds himself with an opportunity, smashing the ball at goal, amazing finger tip save from the Poland keeper!

    86th Minute: Gentile picks up a ball from Finke, passes out wide to Faci, great cross to the front post where Plob Dork is waiting. One Touch, One Shot,
    GOALLLLLLL!!! San Marino 4 - 1 Poland. This is a rout!!!

    90th Minute: Ashario picks up a yellow card for a professional foul.

    Full Time -
    San Marino 4 - 1 Poland!

    Man Of The Match: Plob Dork

    Substitutes

    Richard Marino: 7.4
    Stefano Duffinci: 6.9
    Daniel Park: 8.0

    My Verdict

    The first half was extremely flat and we didn't show signs of even putting up a fight. Apart from Leoni throwing himself infront of the ball, the rest of the players had nothing to be happy about. I fired them up at half time with an aggressive team talk. In the second half, we saw a totally different team! It could have been a number of things... The substitutes, the formation change or the team talk... We absolutely destroyed Poland in the second half and could have had more goals. Great victory and very satisfying.

    Well, seemed to have a fairly good game against Sweden, especially going forward, hopefully we won't concede as many at the back against Poland!

    Moldova Vs San Marino - European Championship Qualifier

    After a massive victory in the Friendly against Poland, San Marino travel to Moldova in search of another victory! The chances of a victory have greatly increased due to the nature of the performance against Poland. Lets hope our players can pick up their first 3 points of the Qualifiers!

    World Rank Announcement: San Marino have moved up 11 places after gaining 30 points from their victory over Poland! They are now Ranked 196th!

    First Team Line-up

    GK - Arawn Moridin
    DR - Davatzis
    DC - Richard Marino
    DC - Giusseppe Leoni
    DL - Giuseppe Faci
    DM - Simone Finke
    MC - Animosama
    AMR - Stefano Duffinci
    AML - Jake Stothard
    STR - Daniel Park
    STL - Plob Dork

    Captain: Simone Finke

    I've got with the formation from the second half of the Poland match.

    First Half

    1st Minute: Faci puts in a great tackle and puts a ball over the top, a Moldova defender gets his head to it, heading back towards goal, but it's a horror pass! Daniel Park is clear through with only the keeper to beat! He takes one touch and totally confuses the keeper. OPEN GOAL FOR PARK! GOALLLLLLL! Moldova 0 - 1 San Marino!

    3rd Minute: Plob Dork finds himself with an opportunity after some good movement from San Marino, but it is saved by the Moldova keeper.

    8th Minute: Another opportunity built up from the back, Stothard puts the final ball through, but Duffinci can only scuff it wide! Great chance goes begging...

    18th Minute: Berco picks up the ball and takes a wild shot at goal, but Arawn Moridin is equal to it! The Corner comes to nothing.

    26th Minute: More great attacking movement, pass after pass and Stothard finds himself infront of goal, but the shot is too weak. Save.

    29th Minute: A shot out of nowhere from Galearscii, 30 yard out, hits the crossbar! That was very lucky!

    33rd Minute: A massive mix up from a Stothard cross!
    GOALLLLL!!! Own Goal from Goncharov! Moldova 0 - 2 San Marino! Moldova have now got a mountain to climb!

    45+2 Minutes: Stothard puts the ball into to area from the corner, landing it straight infront of Plob Dork! Dork goes for goal, but it's blocked well! Penalty!!! A Moldova player went in hard to stop Dork from shooting, taking out Dork and another of his own player! The Moldova player is down injured, but Plob Dork gets up.

    45+4 Minutes: Zangari steps up to take the penalty! GOALLLLLL!!! Moldova 0 - 3 San Marino. Zangari with an amazing penalty that flies into the top right hand corner!

    Second Half

    51st Minute: Stothard puts the corner into the box! Finke tries to get on the end of it. A MOLDOVA PLAYER GOES SLIDING IN AN TAKES FINKE OUT BUT HITS THE BALL INTO THE NET!!! OWN GOALLLLLLL!!! Moldova 0 - 4 San Marino! Finke takes one for the team, but is still down injured! He looks like he'll be fine.

    53rd Minute: Plob Dork puts Zangari through and it's 2 V 1 with Stothard running up the right! Zangari goes for goal... High and Wide! What a waste!

    59th Minute: Duffinci switches to the right for Stothard! Stothard only needs to pass across the box, but decides to go for goal! Identical to the last chance, High and Wide! It appears Stothard might have a problem with Zangari!

    Substitute...

    Simone Finke Off - Geraint Alacarde On
    Jake Stothard Off - Walter Ashario On

    Geraint Alacarde is set to make his debue! The DMC position has been moved to AMC.

    60th Minute: Animosama tackles well and moves the ball to Plob Dork. Dork takes on the Moldova defence and goes for goal, good save from Soimu.

    61st Minute: Almost identical to the previous chance, Animosama puts Plob Dork through, but the shot is well saved.

    62nd Minute: Huge mistake from Soimu as his pass to the left back is disgracefull and Duffinci tackles, gets back up and smacks the ball into the box!
    GOALLLLL! Geraint Alacarde puts the ball in the net! Great way to introduce himself! Moldova 0 - 5 San Marino!

    64th Minute: Ashario steps up to take the corner kick! Straight to the front post and meets Zangari!
    GOALLLL!!! Moldova 0 - 6 San Marino! Great goal and San Marino are scoring for fun!

    70th Minute: Moldova 1 - 6 San Marino. Stinga never meant it, but his cross went over everyone's head and landed in the left hand corner! Freak goal! Moridin will have some questions to answer on that 1! Probably a lack of concentration, due to the lack of chances for Moldova.

    73rd Minute: Constant pressure from San Marino, Alacarde puts Ashario clear through, Ashario curls the ball towards goal and hits the post! It wouldn't have counted, the flag is up for offside!

    87th Minute: Ashario puts a dangerous ball in, Plob Dork tries to get to it, but takes out a Moldova player in the process. Yellow Card.

    Full Time! Moldova 1 - 6 San Marino!

    Finke looks like he's in good form. Doing the simple things well, getting the ball and laying it off for others. Proper anchor man by the looks of it.

    You forgot to list Daniel Park for a goal in the Poland game

    By the way, it looks like you subbed out Park out for Zangari in the first half but I didn't see a mention of it, Park didn't pick up an injury did he? Great game to win 6-1 for San Marino though!

    Yeah, Park got injured which is why he went off. My web browser shut down during typing up the game, so a few bits might be missing and that's probably one of them.

    Any update on what kind of injury Park picked up?

    A tie game for the rivals eh, unfortunate Domagnano couldn't take advantage of the red card. The possession numbers are a bit worrisome.

    Daniel Park picked up a Strained Kneck during the match. He was given 2 weeks to recover and has since recovered and played a game or two.

    Sometimes a red card can make a team work harder to get a result. The possession is about normal as Fiorentino play possession football, which is why Domagnano struggled for chances.

    The Campionato Sammarinese update is coming shortly
