Overall, it was a fantastic performance for Inter White's first-ever competitive game, where we dominated possession and had around 14 shots on goal to their 4, but they converted 3 of their 4 chances and goalie Gianni Conti only had one save to make the whole game and it was a great one.
We started the game extremely strong, Daniel Morali missing 5 minutes in from close range but then a few minutes later scoring but then the referee somehow deciding it was offside.
Out of nothing, after 15 minutes, South TLV scored from a wonder strike from outside the box. Then, with 30 seconds left of the first half, we switched off not closing the ball, allowing them too much room, leading to a second goal for them literally on the halftime whistle; it was so unreflective of the first half to be 2-0 down.
The only thing that needed improving after the break was the defence needed to push further forward in the second half and we also switched to 4-4-2. The second half was full of yellow cards for both teams, the referee certainly did not have a good game and should have certainly branded a second yellow for an awful challenge on Zack Shooter.
With 15 minutes to go, we switched to 3-4-3. So many chances came and went but we finally broke the deadlock on the 85th minute from a beautifully floated cross by James Green into the box which Ben Aruzasnky headed home.
A second defender off was taken off, meaning we were now essentially playing with 4 upfront with 5 minutes left. Unfortunately, we then did give the ball away in the middle and were punished for being exposed in those final minutes. In the final play of the game, Elijah Golding set Daniel Morali free into the box with a great ball and he finished nicely as the game ended 2-3.
A decent performance for a first game but a few lapses of concentration cost us, as well as not taking out chances. A good start, despite the result.
