Also, ELiwaku had both assists today.
THe first goal: Eliwaku received a long ball and he tried to speed around two defenders. He reached the endline and had no real shot at goal since the goalie had moved to cover the near post. He then flicked it on to an unmarked man at the far post who scored.
The second goal: The ball was cleared by the Inter defense who were under constant attack. The ball reached a Juve midfielder who tried to settle it but in comes Dino Marino and somehow he races into the tangle of ball and player and he comes out at full speed with the ball. He races all the way to the 18 yd line and then gives it up to Eliwaku. Eliwaku, who receives the ball on the left side of the goal, while Dino is on the right, pretends he's trying a better angle to shoot so he juts to the right. At the end, he flicks it on to an unmarked Marino at the right post who pummels it into the roof of the net.
I watched the match from the 21st minute of the 2nd half onwards. I mostly saw Juventus attacking us. It was a constant barrage, Juventus were employing long ball tactics. We got extremely lucky twice in the 2nd half when the ball was just scattering around five feet from the goal line and it was a mad scramble to kick it out. Our clearing was horrible since we cleared either to the half line to a waiting Juventus half back or to the 18 yd line where a midfielder of ours tried to whack it out and instead tapped it to another Juventus midfielder. Poor clearing. We got extremely lucky on finishing, with one shot going just wide of hte post by inches.
Eliwaku is a great player. I'm impressed with his size. He's not as pacy as Martins but still the fastest man on the pitch. His bulkiness helps him out a lot. The only thing is that he doesnt' have a good dribble and just tries to run past attackers. He has no real control in that dribble sense.
The Juvetnus goal was not able to be stopped except by the defenisve mids. The jUve midfielder or attacker got the ball at the 20 yds line or so and kicked it in, a great shot. The goalie made a great save but there was no way he could have held on and the ball bounced away, the nearest man being a juve attacker and our back and hte juve defender got there first and made a nice shot almost from the endline.
