Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Futsal Football Competition…Quarter-finals on tonight in Linden
This year’s Linden edition of the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Futsal Football Competition in Linden has reached an interesting stage where only the best of the best survive as teams make the tactical and technical improvements in their quest to cart off the top prizes at stake.
Today, the quarter-finals will be played at the Wisroc / Amelia’s Ward Bus Park and fans are expected to come out in their numbers to witness four matches that promises fireworks judging from the teams’ performances during the Round of 16 on Saturday night, at the same venue.
In addition to the matches directly related to the competition, the Organisers have also planned two exhibition games that feature Bosai versus L.E.I, while L.U.S.C.L takes on a Guinness selection.
Meanwhile, in the opening fixture, Sheriff Squad go up against Retrieve Unknowns and this is a matchup that should favour the former, especially with the likes of former national mid-fielder Collie Hercules and a bright upcoming star in the name of Colwin David in their line-up.
Retrieve Unknowns, who survived on penalty kicks will have to improve their performance to get past the skilful duo of Hercules and David.
Rough and Rugged then go up against Amelia’s Ward Russians and this encounter has the making of being the most interesting matchup of the evening.
The energetic and skilful Jamie Wilson is once again expected to lead the charge for victory for the Rough and Rugged unit, a team that easily dismantled the much vaunted Coomacka United team that had played unbeaten in the preliminary phase before they met a well organised backline that stood up strongly against their attacking ploys.
In the third game, ½ Mile / 1 Mile tackles Hard Knocks and this clash promises to be closely contested affair.
Seon Brewley, a player who has played at the highest level domestically will lead the challenge of ½ / 1 Mile, while Hard Knocks chances of progressing further will rest on the shoulders of Oswald Benjamin and Randy Small.
In the final game of the night, Pepper Skull square off against Pokersburg, who looked very competitive in their previous clash where they won convincingly.
Pepper Skull on the other hand managed to survive on penalty kicks and will definitely have to step up and compete at this level.
The night of action should provide a high level of Futsal football for the fans to come out and enjoy.
