how was the game?
Sorry, I completely forgot about this thread.
Well, we lost 4-3 on penalties. The match finished 2-2 and we went directly into penalties.
I started the match on the bench - I obviously wasn't the only striker in our 4-3-3 system. After about 20 minutes we need a new formation and a new man upfront - a bigger one, that is. I'm 190 something and replaced one on 165 or something. He played offensive midfielder, which suited him much more.
The guy on 165 scored the first goal of the match on a penalty - not a good one btw, but he scored.
The opposition equalised shortly after, and then came my golden opportunity: we got a free-kick a few feet outside the box - you know, where the half circle or whatever touches ends, so to speak. At the left side, btw. The wall was of course placed at my left and the keepers right, so that he could control the far side of the goal. I'm left-footed so I planned to go for the far corner (the right side from my point of view). The ball got a perfect bend, the perfect pace and went strait up in the far right top corner - beautiful!
BUT, the ref apparently hadn't given me the permition to take the free-kick just yet. He was about to see if the wall was rightfully placed. I simply hadn't seen him, and thought I was clear to go.
He didn't call the goal, and I had to do it again. I knew I could do it again, but as we all know it isn't as easy as it seems. I shot just above goal - in the same side. Man, how depressing. :depress:
Well, we got up on 2-1 before they equalised late in the match on a beautiful volley from outside the box.
I scored on my penalty, but we still lost 4-3 in the shootout. :undecide:
