Without Fortune: Barbarians 0-1 Fortuna 94 2011-03-12

Published on March 13, 2011

Matchday 14 of IFFC 2010-2011 Premiere League saw the Beijing Barbarians kick off against Fortuna 94. After five games without a defeat, the Barbarians went into the match high in confidence, although the absences of captain Mo and striker Dary were some cause for concern and forced the managerial team of Keith and Jochanan to rearrange the lineup somewhat.

It was an even match between Fortuna and the Barbars, and a single goal for Fortuna decided the outcome of the match. In the first half it was Fortuna 94's Shun Nakamura (27') who managed to somehow pass two Barbarians defenders and slot the ball into the lower left corner for the 1-0 lead. Apart from that goal, neither team could convert its chances, even with both Alex and Isaac applying consistent pressure along the wings and Kevin and Henry ever-present in the opposition's half.

Dejavu and Tim kept things tight in midfield, and central defender Keith's return to the lineup provided some solidity in the back. Frankly, both teams defended well, and the game was mostly played in the midfield. Fortuna held the 1-0 lead over the 90 minutes and took all three points, but both teams played well and it could have just as easily gone in our favor. Voted Man of the Match by the opposition was Kevin "Shop it and Rock it" Plume.
