IFC finished the Autumn half of the PIBFAL league season with a hard fought win over Prague Devils who they leapfrog into second place before the Winter break. It was a physical game but not dirty and it was a fun game against a very good team who didn’t spend the game moaning at the referee or IFC.

IFC started strongly and Antrobus forced a good save from the Devils excellent goalkeeper after good work by Philbin after 2 minutes. Savant then saw a long shot screamer just clear the crossbar.

10’ 0-1 IFC: Some good work from the back by Reppin and Moreaux fed Roberts on the left wing. Roberts played a delightful cross field pass to Lopez whose shot was well saved by the keeper only for Philbin to follow up and open the scoring.

Another good save from Philbin by the Devils keeper kept the score at 0-1 before Kazmierczak was called into action after a good Devils move.

33’ 1-1 Devils had threatened to equalize with Jaubert’s set pieces causing problems in the IFC defence, and did so when a long shot cannoned off the post, hit the unlucky Kazmierczak and went in the IFC net.

42’ 1-2 IFC: Both teams had chances with the keepers making good saves before Frederiksen put IFC ahead with a volley from a Martinez free kick.

HT: Prague Devils 1-2 IFC Prague

55’ 1-3 IFC: Antrobus continued his fine scoring run with IFC’s 3rd after a good run by Philbin.

75’ Another good save by Kazmierczak in the IFC goal prevented Devils from pulling a goal back.

81’ 1-4 IFC: Frederiksen put the game beyond Devils with a low 30 yard shot into the bottom corner.

FT: Prague Devils 1-4 IFC Prague

Dynamo Žižkov and Partisan have history. A history that stretches back to the origins of expat football in Prague. Hardly surprising then that there was a bit of needle in a fixture so full of other surprises.

When the Partisan boys come to town you know it’s going to be entertaining. With a rich pool of footballing talent to call on they can easily put out two full squads, let alone one and so it was that Partisan B turned up, with a sprinkling of the Partisan A team to boot.

But DZ were strong too. And after a run of games which saw the team gradually starting to uncover their footballing identity it was the perfect night to hit your stride. And did they ever.

In an engaging first half both teams probed and pushed with DZ keeping hold of the ball for long periods, moving it confidently around the pitch, frustrating their opposition. However there were few clear cut chances until a ten minute spell towards the end of the first half when it was Partisan who had their best moments.

First testing a resolute keeper, Stephane Gelin, who parried a well struck shot around the post, followed by two goal bound efforts from set pieces, both cleared off the line. But any score against them at this stage would have been harsh on the hosts who were playing some lovely stuff and so with the break came a 0-0 scoreline which was no more than Zizkov deserved.

In the second half though Dynamo stepped up their passing game and it became a joy for the footballing purest. Partisan’s players, growing increasingly frustrated, chased shadows for long periods as DZ delivered a footballing lesson.

Gelin distributing from the back via the solid central defensive partnership of Tsagkaris and Pelissier. Through Keller, Etame and Cadete in midfield up to Lopez in attack. But in naming these players it must be noted the quality was there from every position on the field. To a man DZ were excellent and it was almost inevitable this standard of play would reap its reward.

And so it came when substitute Jalley headed home, unchallenged, from a corner.

Partisan pushed on once more but this gave the sweet passing DZ space to capitalise and Jalley, who was having an absolute blinder of a match, scored with two carbon copy strikes. Both times sweeping the ball across the keeper into the bottom right hand corner. The second of which, a solo effort, he started in his own half.

And so as the niggly fouls against them mounted up, DZ remained committed to pass and move football. Just the sort of response one would have hoped for. The final whistle brought to an end a fantastic night’s football and everyone was friends again… as it should be.

Dynamo walked off deservedly 3-0 victors setting the tone for the upcoming festivities and their 20year anniversary party this Saturday. And if such a delightfully pure footballing performance is anything to go by the club is in rude health… bring on another 20 years.
