Eboria’s run in the IC3 came to an end in Barcelona tonight. Chile, led by Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal were just too strong for Eboria on the night. Eboria had been without playmaker Matt Murphy and lost Buckhalter and Myers to injuries before half-time.  Continue reading “IC3: Chile too hot for Eboria in Semi-final”

2018 WNCQ: CONCAFA Heats Up!

2018 World Nations Cup Qualifiers | CONCAFA

The heat is officially on in CONCAFA! With the Aguador’s 1-1 draw in Anderland, the gap between the top teams is so thin. With four rounds to go , there is a chance for seven of the eight teams to go through. Eboria dropped points to Djaraska, with a 2-2 draw. that draw though, eliminated Djaraska from contention.

The point puts the Aguador in 5th, with Latania above based on goal difference. With a top of the table clash coming up in September, the other teams will be hoping to capitalise on any points dropped. Eboria still have to play the next four nations- Anderland, Marida, Aguador and Latania, so their lead is not assured.

San Andreas and Seafax appoint HCs

ESL Recruitment | San Andreas Spirit | Seafax Strikers

The last two ESL teams with head Coach vacancies filled them today. The San Andreas Spirit named Patrick Brady to lead them, whilst the Seafax Strikers have promoted from within- Jon Lewis, who was the assistant Head Coach has taken on the role of Full Head Coach.

With these two positions in place, the ESL is fully stocked at the management positions- just the whole matter of the transfer window merry-go-round to go through before the season starts!

Five moves on fast-start Friday!

ESL Transfers | Scott Donahoe

The window has only just opened, but here are five ESL moves to have gone down on #FaststartFriday!

1. Aron Mulder CF (Juvenese to New Jorg United)
The young Anderland international was looking for somewhere to play regularly. Should be a great asset up front to replace the departing Michael Ameche. Stood out as a super-sub for Juvenese in the past two CONCAFA Champs League rounds, now gets to be a starter.

2. Blake Solo CM (Elverpool to Rochester United)
Solo slipped out of favour in Elverpool. With his confidence hit, he (and his agent) jumped at a chance to rebuild the ‘Solo13’ brand at newly-promoted Rochester. When on form, one of the top playmakers in the ESL.

3. Saúl Blanco LW (Independiente to Angel FC)
With Carlos Suárez’s move pending, Angel have not waited. Blanco is a talented left-winger, making great runs and tracks back well, too. The Aguadorian is a good pick. Will not directly replace Suárez in terms of goals and chances, so they will need to add more.

4. Dante Reed GK (Carlton to FC Coratia)
The goalie gives Coratia some ESL experience between the sticks, both sides will be hoping that he has less shots to save than when with Carlton last year. A good, young keeper with lots of potential.

5. Alváro CF (West Hampton Athletic to Olympians)
The task of replacing Nelinho and Hernandinho (both certain to move on) begins with a low-key move for Alváro of West Hampton Athletic. Good at NLS1 level and stood out in Copa Eboria ties, but untested at ESL level. An intriguing choice, who will be to follow?
