Imortal 1 - 2 Quarteira SC

Algarve Cup First Round

This was a game that Imortal couid and should have won. However statistics can lie. Although they had the major share of possession and had a good number of goal scoring opportunities there was no finishing power. The only Imortal goal came five minutes into added time, by which time it was a lost cause. Quarteira took an early lead and defended in numbers, not being afraid to resort to the big boot upfield when called for.

The second Quarteira goal was a penalty mid-way through the second half, which also saw the dismissal of defender Luis Santos.

The opening goal came after 12 minutes and was of Imortal's making.  A horrible clearance by 'keeper David Mendonça was collected in midfield and two passes later striker Ricardo Oleirinha had an easy task from a few metres out with Imortal's defenders struggling to get into position.

Recovering from that blow, Imortal worked their way back into the game but, despite forcing six corners in fairly short order, failed to make anything of them. The visitors were content to sit back and take the blows. When they did threaten, which was rarely, Imortal's captain and centre back Rodrigues kept things under control.

A half chance went Imortal's way just before half time but all that came of it was a yellow card for Tidjane Baldé. He was set free down the left, out came the ´keeper and there was a collision. The ´keeper of course made every bit of it and Tidjane was booked.

The second half was almost all Imortal, but the lack of a goalscorer was blindingly obvious. There were ten decent shots on goal and six corners in the second period but that one very late goal to show for it. The half started well enough, Bruno Pereira hitting the angle of post and crossbar in the first minute. He was berated later for not attacking the ball enough and was subbed.

Quarteira had one breakaway attack from which they should have scored but two players got in each other's way and lost the ball. We then had a short interruption when the automatic sprinklers came on. Some one had obviously forgotten to close down the program. It was a couple of minutes before they could be turned off.

Shortly after that came the penalty incident. Santos found himself last man and wrestled an opponent to the ground. Few complaints. The penalty was initially saved but the rebound fell nicely for the taker, Karolo Ponte. Two - nil.

Imortal piled everything forwards. Chico, on as sub, was heavily involved with his accurate passing. Twice he set up Tidjane Baldé but twice he failed. Baldé then blasted a free kick just over the bar before six minutes added time was announced.

A couple minutes into the added time, Imortal gained a free kick on the edge of the area. After the customary arguments and general chaos had subsided, Rodrigues hit it well but straight at the ´keeper.

Time was running out when Baldé collected a floated cross and smacked it in from close range. There was only enough time left for Quarteira to kick off, draw a foul which saw Flavinho booked and they ran down the clock and took the win.

Imortal will be at home again on Saturday, a league game v Lagoa, ko 1500hrs / 3pm

Imortal 0 - 0 Lagoa

Awful game, truly awful. Lagoa not so much as parked a bus but a whole fleet of them. They mustered only one shot in the whole game, which I could have stopped without difficulty. Imortal's coaching team were left banging their heads in frustration at the end. Imortal were up against only nine men for what turned out to be last ten minutes. Lagoa's goalkeeper Santos was injured, they had already made all their subs so an outfield player went in goal. Then one of them was sent off, but still Imortal couldn't create anything more than a half chance.

Imortal made changes from both last week's league game and Wednesday's cup match. With Flavinho suspended and Bruno Pereira dropped, in came Elvis Udokporo and 'new signing' Marcio Ramos into the forward line. Ramos had been with Imortal as junior and has re-joined the club after being away óut of country'.

The first half was literally almost nothing to write about. An early chance almost fell to Tidjane Baldé from a cross by Udokporo but the ´keeper grabbed it just in time. It was halfway through the half before a shot on target was mustered, but Pelé shot straight at the´keeper, easy stop. After a two minute stoppage for Santos to change his boots, Imortal did exert some pressure. There was good work in particular from Tidjane Baldé in midfield but his team-mates were far too tentative in the approach to goal.  Ten passes when one would have done. Just on half time a free kick by Ramos from the edge of the penalty area was sent just a little too high.

Words were obviously said during the interval. Imortal came out flying, a great run by Udokporo down the left started proceedings. He cut inside two defenders forcing Santos to save with his legs. A later similar run was ended ignominiously when he trod on the ball and fell over. After another half chance was spurned, he was subbed on the hour. His replacement was Bruno Pereira. Maybe the idea was for a greater presence in the penalty area. Didn't work, he was pretty anonymous apart from just failing to connect with a spinning rebound after a shot by Ramos was blocked on the line.  A free kick by Umaro Baldé was saved, Pedro Rodrigues just failed to make contact with the rebound as it flashed across the goal.

Imortal managed a good spell after Chico had replaced Pelé half way through the half. Chico's passing and ball skills were evident, but still those in front of him could do nothing with it. Nerves were starting to jangle around the half hour. Tidjane Baldé swapped wings to try to get something going, then came the long stoppage for the Lagoa goalkeeper's injury. He did do a fairly impressive triple roll, derided by the home crowd but after a few minutes attention on the field he was taken off and an ambulance called. Lagoa had already done all their subs so were down to ten. Normal time was ending when Tidjane Baldé tested the stand-in keeper but his save was no more than routine.

Nine minutes additional time was announced, which became eleven. Two minutes into that a Lagoa player was sent off for two yellow cards and they  were down to nine. Imortal then resorted to hoofing the ball into the penalty area to see if something would happen, but there were at times 18 or 19 players crammed into a very small area, no space. T. Baldé then clattered the replacement ´keeper, so there was another stoppage.

Right on time, a poor clearance fell to Chico in space on the edge of the area. All around cried 'calma, Chico' so he blasted it first time about 10 metres over the bar!

End of the game, Imortal's goalkeeper Nélio Pereira (restored) confronted a couple of the Lagoa players about something we know not. He was perhaps bored having only touched the ball about three times that half. There was the usual arm waving, pushing and shoving as the players walked off with the match officials and three of Albufeira's finest looking on.

Imortal's next game is the difficult trip to league leaders Moncarapachense, next Saturday.

Good result yesterday, a 3-3 draw at league leaders Moncarapchense. I was unable to go, my own sporting day concluding at 14.15hrs on the Balaia bowling green, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Next game is at home  next Saturday to second placed team and local rivals Ferreiras, ko 1500hrs.
