(EBORIA 4-2 on PKs)

Eboria claimed a historic third-place in the IC3, beating the co-hosts Spain in the play-off for third place on penalties. It was 1-1 after normal time, after extra time, so the deadlock was decided via shoot-out. Matt Murphy scored an equaliser in the second half, following Spain leading through Alvaro Morata, again.

After a scoreless extra-time period, in which the hosts were down to ten-men after a reckless Sergio Ramos foul earned him a straight red, Eboria held their nerve in the shoot out. They scored all four penalties, whilst the Spanish missed two. Sol Harrison scored the decisive kick.

Tony Jones’s men have proved themselves worthy of entry to this tournament, with two wins, two draws and 1 defeat in the five games, with a bonus of the penalty shoot out win tonight.

Although all eyes will rightly be on the final between Chile and Portugal, Eboria will have given notice that they are for real, with next summer’s World Nations Cup a priority.

Eboria: Ferguson, Holland, Ayandele (C), Givens, Cooper, Mills, Harrison, Langford (sub Murphy), Wilcox (sub Carter), Marshall (sub Baric), Thomas.
