26.1.2009 Russia brings home the World Cup
In an unusually exciting final, Russia yesterday claimed the 12th Hattrick World Cup title by defeating Greece. The Greeks made a heroic stand, keeping the score at a draw for three quarters of the game, despite an overwhelming ball possesion advantage for the Russians. However, after 78 minutes, Alexander Koltsov scored the opening goal for Russia, and the win was secured only four minutes later by Vitaly Saltykov. Our congratulations to the coach of Russia, Spirit-of-Guus!
