Etourney 0-4 Floria

39' Sanchez
45' Hunt
71' Edwards
76' Florian


Debut goals from Alex Sanchez and Tom Edwards plus a sensational overhead kick from Sheldon Hunt capped off a dominant display in Pedro Ramos's first game in charge of the Florian national team. Floria who started with all 11 depth players was too much for a vastly improving Etourney side who were fortunate to have Blackoak goalkeeper Jérémy Pélissier who made sure the game didn't go into double figures.

Senya 2-1 Lamantia
16' Kiket Volisnk
23' Barnaby Hands (pen.)

72' Sven Ebersbacher

Senya edged out a rather cagey encounter that was held in Senya's newest region in the Feldberg Arena. Kiket Volinsk opened the deadlock early, skipping through several challenges before sliding the ball across the keeper, before Hands converted from the penalty spot after Markœ Minyorletsken's cross was blocked by the outstretched arm of Matthias Sagner. After going 2-0 up, Lamantia kicked back into the game, and were unlucky not to pull a goal back when Sven Ebersbacher's header was flicked over from under the bar by Mark Jacobs. The second half saw a similar stalemate, with neither side pushing much, but Ebersbacher did get a goal to make things interesting late on, with his 25-yard free-kick find the top corner as Jacobs could only stand and admire the finish.

Alrig 1-1 Sankt Ludwigshafen
'31 Ludwig Pferdekaufer [RSL]
'47 Merlijn Schimmelstuiver [OIL]

Tickets for this match in the Sticks and Beams in Driftwood were sold out, and many visitors were welcomed and treated to traditional Alriggian and Ludwiggian snacks. Both teams were evenly matched throughout the game, and they played their game with grace and sportsmanship. Alriggian players applauded Ludwig Pferdekaufer when he opened the score in the 31st minute, and Merlijn Schimmelstuiver received a shoulder pat from Ludwiggian players when he evened the score. Because there were hardly any fouls, the match ended after precisely 90 minutes.

*Played 5th January*
Victoria 0-2 Craitland
18' - J.M. Juliaĵsen
44' - J.V. Herä


Victoria's return to the FMF was marred slightly by their protectors' national side as two first-half goals were enough to seal the win for an amended Craitland over the rebuilding hosts.

*Played 12th January*
Craitland 2-1 Phinbella
14' - P. Nicodemou
29' - J.M. Juliaĵsen
86' - J. Mälent


Craitland fought back to steal a home victory over EMU hosts Phinbella in a friendly ahead of their shared Confederations Cup fixtures this spring. Jan-Morteņ Juliaĵsen's 50th international goal tied the scores after a Polycarpos Nicodemou header gave the visitors the lead, with a late Jamie Mälent finish making the difference in the end.

Lamantia 3-2 Tiana
1' Kalvin Ozzie
25' Vincenzo D'Aquila

63' Reuben Frederiksen
74' Sven Ebersbacher
82' Jan Jankola


Lamantia survived a scare to take a victory out of their final pre-qualifier friendly with Tiana. The visitors nabbed the lead on just 26 seconds, with Tillmann Schober slipping on the edge of his box when taking a touch, allowing Kalvin Ozzie to run in slot past Sebastian Rheine to put his side infront. And things got worse for the Lamantians midway through the first half, with Vincenzo D'Aquila finding the top corner from a free kick just outside the penalty area, managing to curl the ball over the 4-man wall into the top corner, which left Rheine rooted.

The half-time break did allow for the Lamantians to receive the proverbial kick-up-the-arse that they needed, playing with much more urgency, but the Tianans were able to hold firm, until the ball fell kindly Reuben Frederiksen 3 yards out from goal after a goal mouth scramble followed a corner kick routine. Lamantia eventually got their mojo flowing, and Sven Ebersbacher headed home from a wide free-kick routine before Jan Jankola exploited a pocket of space and some poor defending to slide a shot from just inside the box into the bottom left corner to win ther game.

Floria 0-0 Senya

Floria and Senya played out a rather dull scoreless draw in Northcliff. Kylian Saint-Pierre had the best of the chances in the first half, shimmying through the Senyan defence before playing a one-two with Sam Butcher, but only mustering a shot straight at Æden Rinforgetskarlos, with Senya's best effort coming in the form of a long shot by Markœ Minyorletsken, which needed Tom Ward to tip it over the bar as a deflection off Patrick Williams had spun the ball towards the opposite side of the goal to where the Northcliff United keeper was. Floria did have the ball in the back of the net during the second period, but substitute's Kian Wright's header was correctly ruled out for offside, with the Blackoak City man just straying beyond his man. Barnaby Hands and Ƨinkœ Zvet both forced saves from Ward, but in the end neither side was able to break the deadlock.
