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.

Imortal Albufeira 0 Ferreiras 0

Typical local derby, not much in the way of skill or excitement for a decent crowd of around 250. The best of very few goalscoring opportunities fell to Imortal a few minutes before the end of normal time. A good move down the right, initiated by what at first seemed a very dubious clearance by goalkeeper Pereira to right back Santos. Santos took the ball down the wing and crossed more in hope than expectation towards Pelé in the centre. The more famous Pelé would probably have scored, but his namesake couldn't quite get his head to the ball enough to send it goalwards. Instead it went over the bar.

The game was played mainly in midfield, defences cut out most attacks with the end product being only four shots on target during the whole game. Neither goalkeeper had a save of note to make. Both sides had half chances from long range, but these were either skied or were weak and stopped easily.

The only real moment in the first half came on the half hour. A cross floated in from the right beat Imortal's goalkeeper, seemed to drop onto the crossbar, but then luckily it fell among defenders who cleared safely.

The second half was a bit better to begin with. Imortal's attack was more positive and was nearly rewarded when a low cross by Ramos just eluded Tidjane Balé and Vieira as it sped along the six yard line.

The game opened out a little, but Ferreiras were content to defend in numbers and stage the occasional counter-attack. Midway through the half came a long stoppage for 'injury', the first of several that were to disrupt the game considerably from then on. Imortal's first corner of the half on 26 minutes lead to Pacheco blasting a shot miles over. Imortal had a minor shout for a penalty, nothing doing, then came Pelé's chance before the referee announced six minutes of added time.

This became ten minutes, as Ferreiras used every trick in the book to break up any flow to the game Imortal might have wanted to create. A good run by Tidjane Baldé almost came to something, but he ran out of pitch before he could cross and then Santos delayed and delayed a cross until he was robbed of possession. A first time ball would have been a better option.

Eventually, at three minutes past five, the game ended with the customary exchange of views between opposing players. This time it was Tidjane Baldé and two of the visitors pointing fingers.

The result means Imortal have now gone seven matches without a defeat in the League but it's three wins and four draws, so points dropped rather than gained I think.  That and the day's other results leave Imortal in sixth place with 13 points from nine games. Next week they travel to Almancil, who are eighth. A win would useful! League table in full https://www.zerozero.pt/edition.php?id_edicao=136814

Yesterday - Almancil 0 - 0 Imortal that's three 0-0 draws for Imortal in their last four league games, all of which have been drawn. Not being beaten is all very well, but a win would be nice!

I was unable to go as I was trying to play bowls in my team's defeat that day.

Next Saturday Imortal will be at home to bottom club Lusitano VRSA ko 1500hrs / 3pm
