GL Shock: MSO Defeat Tranquebar

MS Odense shocked the India sister club Football Club Tranquebar when the two clubs meet at Šerif Bošnjak Arena in Odense. A decimated home team won unexpectedly over a club with a bigger budget and better players. MS Odense has made big changes to the squad in resent weeks and are still not set for the upcoming season.

3000 fans followed the match live and it was a match of international standard. The two teams have 131 U20 matches and 39 NT matches combined and spread over eight players. MS Odense got the best of it with a surprisingly easy 3:0 win in a match with two defensively oriented lineups. Odense played an unexpected 5-3-2 formation with Armenia goalkeeper Shmavon Dolmayan playing a big match and stopped counterattacks by Tranquebar’s Sudeep Bokil and Hyun-Min Ko. Dolmayan had good reason to be proud because Hyun-Min Ko was rewarded with the HTU Award Forward of the Season before kickoff. If coach Joakim Morgansson had any doubt about the quality he has in goal it was gone after the match. Odense has two talented and strong goalkeepers.

“We are proud of the result today” Morgansson said after the match. “Kenmogne and four with a past in our academy should have been tested more today, but they helped Dolmayan to a clean sheet. They controlled a match against a better team, so even though they obviously tested some new things today, we can and must be proud of this win”. The coach also promised the fans of MS Odense, that the club ain’t finish getting an interesting squad together for the next season. Assistant coach Alfred Burch also confirmed this in mixed zone after the match.

“Players are coming in and out of the club at the moment. The plan is made and being fulfilled at the moment. Our academy will keep filling up the squad with the club’s best talents from a dedicated work at the academy, and in addition I’m think i am aloud to tell you that we’re working on getting some exciting new names to the club in the coming week” was the words from Burch.
