FANS were treated to games of a high soccer standard when Motherwell Football Association (MOFA) hosted its MOFA Build It Annual Easter Football Tournament quarter-finals at Motherwell NU 2 Stadium on Sunday.

According to the soccer experts, the quarter-finals were effectively “the finals before the finals” because the teams upped their performances by such a large amount.

The spectators saw some players displaying amazing footballing skills and scoring some spectacular goals.

The hot favourites, Showvillage United Brothers, kissed goodbye to the tournament, after a 1-0 loss to Valencia.

Crystal Palace booked themselves a berth in the semi-finals after they eliminated Manchester FC 4-3 on penalties following the 1-1 regulation time draw.

The tournament’s other hot favourites, Motherwell Academy, managed to knock ZWIFA Shining Stars out 2-0, with Mbongeni Keita Yako and Vuyolwethu Dinge contributing a goal apiece.

In another nail-biting clash, Shining Stars MOFA lost 4-2 on penalties to Young Madrid after their game ended in the hard-fought 1-1 full-time draw.

Madrid midfielder Asanele Mnyanda and Stars left wing Simphiwe Manengele each scored from the penalty spot during the regulation time.

Stars ended the game with 10 men after their defender, Siyanda Mani, was given a red-card by the referee after collecting his second yellow card of the match.
