France 4, Greece 2
The score was closer than the skill between these two squads. France had the majority of the chances, but the Greece keeper had a fantastic game. The half time score was only 1-0 for France and it was an ugly scramble goal by Leon because the Greek defender decided to hold onto the ball in his own box and got it stripped. Two minutes into the second half Greece scored a weird sideline free kick that no France defenders wanted to clear after it bounced in the box. France got the lead right back thanks to Dylan Ferridge roasting his defender on the wing and giving a sweet pass to Leon right in front of the net. Kevin Murphy made it 3-1 for France when he rocketed a shot off the crossbar and in from 30 yards out. However, 20 seconds after Kevin's goal Greece got one right back with a nice shot that hit the bottom corner. With five minutes left Kaj sealed it for France when he took a perfect layoff pass from Tony Haid at the top of the box and put it right in the corner.
