|UnicoGrandeAmore takes Masters trophy
|On Thursday evening Los sureños (mendruguillos II) from Bénin and UnicoGrandeAmore from Italy faced each other in the Hattrick Masters final. The winner of the 77th edition? You will get to find out at the end of this message if you didn't already get it from the headline.
Most spectators probably had fallen asleep when finally some action occurred on the pitch in a match that felt like it was more of a tactical exercise. With 2 goals just seconds before the referee blew the half-time whistle, there was at least something to discuss while the players were enjoying their tea. Luckily the scorekeepers hadn't fallen sleep yet and so those who had missed the goals at least knew the current standing, 1 - 1.
For those who had hoped for a better second half - tough luck, as both teams appeared to have more attention for each other than for the ball. Was it all that bad today? No, everyone - well the neutral spectators at least, were relieved when in the 81st minute UnicoGrandeAmore scored for 1 - 2. Thank goodness! Now at least they wouldn't have to suffer through extra time as well. One minute of additional time was added though by the referee, maybe he wasn't tired enough already before he blew his final whistle?
Los sureños were disappointed obviously, losing is never fun. The fans of UnicoGrandeAmore had by now all but forgotten about the match they had had to endure when their captain lifted the Hattrick Masters trophy. It's theirs!
Our congratulations go to UnicoGrandeAmore and their manager ziubelu.
