5-star performance for the Whites who routed the Reds 9-0. Reds had no answer for Whites overall team performance. It took about 5 mins before Whites broke the duck, while the floodgate did not open at one go, the constant scoring of goals broke Reds momentum and fighting spirit. Red players were out of position and strikers were isolated upfront and had to do a lot by themselves. As much as Captain Keith and Sean tried to rally the troops, Whites defenses stood firm. Reds had a few chances but they weren't many clear-cut once.
One of the best team performance I have played in a while. Whites defended from the front with Calvin, Ray, Joel putting pressure on Reds while Kenny and Ivo defending very well at the back. Reds goals came from good team play, creating spaces and mixing playing the ball from the back and doing route 1. The desire to keep the cleansheet was epitomized by the Whites enthusiastically defending a goal line melee.

p.s. If playing football manager, all Whites players will get rating 8 from me.
