Elfsborg 8

Floriana o

A depleted Floriana FC side was trashed on Thursday evening  in the First Leg of the first qualifying round of the UEFA Europea League when the Malta side lost 8-0 in Sweden against Elfsborg. The game that was played at the Boras Arena saw the hosts impose the pace of the game since the first minute.

Without yet an official coach, Floriana travelled to Sweden under the guidance of player care-taker coach Ivan Woods.

Niklas Hult scored three goals in the match on the 5th, 24th on the and 26th minute mark, with one from the 1 meter mark. The other scorers were Joahn Larssson who scored on the 62nd mark, Lars Nilsson on the 37th minute mark, Viktor Claesson on the 51st minute and Amadou Jawo early in the game on the 10th minute of play.

Tyronne Farrugua was sent off in the first half on the 25th minute after committing a foul inside the penalty area which led to a penalty. Floriana travelled to Sweden with only 15 players, so all the players played some minutes with the exception of reserve keeper John Agius. Jermain Brincat, Sacha Borg and Ryan Darmanin came in as subs. Joseph Borg was injured early in the game and his physical condition will be assessed once the team land in Malta.

Floriana will host Elfsborg for the formality of the second leg on July 10th. This was the second consecutive european heavy defeat that Floriana suffered after last year they lost with the same scoreline home 8-0 to AEK Larnaca.

    Skor kbir u tal-misthija ma ttellax bizzejjed plejers. Ahjar ma telaw xejn ghax waqqaw l-image ta’ Malta. Nittama lil-MFA tara li jkun hemm aktar serjeta` mit-timijiet Maltin li mmorru jipprezentaw lil pajjizna barra.

    Next time round you should think twice or thrice before competing in European competitions – I say do not even apply for the license as you will spare some very much needed money (thousands of euros)
    With all your due respect we need teams who are preapred and they can get some draws or win games to continue to better our coeffcient and hence ensure that we have 4 teams in European competitions

    Waqajna fl-abissi issa. Kumitat bla sahha ghax apparti l-umiljazjoni tar-rizultat, nara xi haga gravi li l-klabb glorjuz taghna tella 15 player biss! Xi skuzi se ngibu issa? Vera bdejnih tajjeb dan l-istagun eh! Ejja greens mohhna hemm ghax nharsu madwarna dak li ilna nibzghu li jsehh qed isehh quddiem ghajnejna minghajr ma naghmlu reajazzjoni!
