Match Report - MIFA V Temecula F.C. Thursday 11th January 2018
MIFA 2 - 2 Temecula F.C.
In a close and toughly contested game, the spoils were shared between Manchester International Football Academy and Temecula F.C.
MIFA started the game well, putting pressure on Temecula early and, following a few well worked plays, earned themselves a penalty to which Noe put away nicely.
The Quails’, managed by ex Manchester City and Scotland international player Willie Donachie, came out strong after the break and scored within the opening minutes of the second half.
After a 20 minute stalemate in the midfield, MIFA managed to build up some deserved possession which was followed by Seedorf netting from 25 yards out.
The home side struggled to stay composed in the dying minutes however and, following a mistake at the back, unlikely conceded in the final minute of the game.
This was the Californian side’s final game of a tour of the UK, having previously played teams such as Queens Park and Radcliffe Borough.
For MIFA, it is a positive start to 2018 following their short winter break and offers coach Pedro Monteiro plenty to work on in the dressing room.
