Yesterday's game was a game we will not want to re-live in a hurry. To put it bluntly, we were outclassed in all areas yesterday afternoon, as the scoreline reflects. Truth be told, assistant coach Elijah Golding began with a gamble; going for a 3-5-2 formation, allowing our surplus of midfielders to break down Spartak's lines of attack. But in the end, it may have only increased the deficit on the other end.
In reality, their forwards had an unbelievable game. They were lethal in front of goal, took most of the chances they had throughout the game and punished us when we made errors.
Elijah said at the beginning of the game that if we let their team dictate the game and play their football from the start, that we would be in trouble, and unfortunately, he was right about that. They were simply too clinical in front of goal, they dictated the tempo of the game for the majority of it and we were ultimately too soft in the challenge - and were made to pay for it dearly.
There were a few positives we can take from yesterday, mainly an absolute worldie from Niv Gur. After Oz Kenner cut in onto his right, he found Niv about 35 yards out. Niv then smashes the ball into the top right hand corner, clipping the post on the way in and almost beginning a comeback for us.
