The party has begun! Eboria will face the runner-up in Group B in the IC3 Semi-final after a sensational victory over the reigning WEFA World Champions in Valencia.

The Dutch were a shadow of their former selves, clearly missing the likes of Robben, van Persie and Kuyt. Wesley Sneijder remained, but he had little help in the middle of the park, with his influence muffled by Mike Mills’ close marking job.

The game started out evenly, with Eboria not looking lesser opponents than the World Champions. The Netherlands had an early chance, forcing a good save from Busch from Depay. Things changed, though, after a wonder-strike from Matt Murphy sent the World Champions reeling. Murhpy’s sweetly hit shot sailed past a helpless Cillessen in goal.

The second goal came from the counter. Eboria are full of pace on the counter, with Thomas, Carter and Baric all throwing themselves forward to support Roman Baric up front. Baric got the second following some neat inter-play from Carter and substitute John Langford.

Netherlands: Cillessen, Van Dijk, Bruma, Blind (C), Veltman (sub Willems), Klaassen, Wijnaldum, Clasie (sub Afellay), Sneijder, Promes, De Jong (sub Huntelaar), Depay.

Eboria: Busch, Buckhalter, Ayandele (C), Givens (sub Myers), Cooper, Bradshaw, Harrison, Murphy (sub Langford), Carter (sub Wilcox), Thomas, Baric.
