Ca Barra da Tijuca (BRA) – Nanset IF (NOR) 3-0 (2-0)

’Damage control’ was the headline of what Nanset from Norway was doing in the first half of the final against the very skilled Brazilian players from Ca Barra da Tijuca. While the Brazilians enjoyed themselves, the Norwegian players tried to limit the damage that Ca Barra da Tijuca had caused after just four minutes of play when they scored.
Quick and beautiful passes resulted in the first goal of the game and a few seconds before the end of the first half they scored again. They easily ran past the Norwegian defenders and, calmly, they scored once more.

In the second half the recipe was a little bit different. Accordingly, Ca Barra da Tijuca scored a stunning long-range goal.
However, credit to Nanset for not giving up. The Norwegian boys fought well, but the Brazilian players were simply too good.

Ørn Horten FK (NOR) – HamKam FB (NOR) 1-0 (0-0)

Having lost to Vidar in the final in class B13, the older friends in B14 won gold, when Ørn beat HamKam 1-0 in a close game.

However, HamKam might as well have won. In large parts of the game, HamKam dominated and created the best chances.
Nevertheless, a gorgeous penalty kick determined the match and, thus, Dana Cup’s next-to-last final had a winner.

Viking FK (NOR) – Kragerø IF FB (NOR) 3-0 (2-0)

Viking beat their fellow countrymen, Kragerø, in class G14 and, hence, the team from Stavanger made up for the club’s defeat in class G15 to Celtic.

The girls from Telemark fought hard but they were no real threat to Viking that scored two goals in the first half. Only at the very end of the first half, Viking’s goalkeeper saved a shot indicating the challenges Kragerø faced.
The second half was a little bit boring and when Viking made it 3-0 it simply emphasized the fact that Viking was the better team.

Lizzy FC (GHA) – Lusaka Youth SA (ZAM) 0-1 (0-0)

Lizzy FC was unable to get past Lusaka’s solid defence. On the other hand, the team from Zambia was able to get past Ghana’s defence in a fast paced final.
Both teams started at a quick pace; however, they often lost the ball too easily.

Lusaka Youth SA quickly found the correct pace enabling the players in orange jerseys to control the game.

The first 25 minutes ended goalless and, subsequently, the spectators had to wait another 10 minutes before Lusaka scored on a beautiful header. Moments before, Lusaka had a huge chance to make it 0-1, and, accordingly, they created several chances but no goals.
In the other end of the pitch, Lizzy FC could not turn energy into goal chances, so Lusaka deservedly raised the trophy in class B19.

Viking FK (NOR) – Celtic FC (SCO) 0-1 efter forlængelse (0-0)

Great freedom fighters like Scottish William Wallace and Norwegian Max Manus have not lived in vain. Celtic from Scotland and Viking from Norway in class G15 fought hard in an intense match, and the players fought to the last.

Unfortunately, the efforts did not lead to any goals in ordinary time, and all the spectators had to wait till the last minute of extra time before Celtic scored.
Even though goals are the cream on the layer cake of every football game, the match was never boring because it was very intense.

Thus, it was a superb football match with two teams that played very well.

Gneist IL (NOR) – Vidar FK (NOR) 3-2 (2-1)

Gneist and Vidar deserve five balls in Saturday’s best final. It was a fast paced, tactical game, in which both teams did well. The spectators saw a highly entertaining match full of spectacular goals.

For instance, Vidar made the mistake of giving away a free kick against Gneist’s number 11 because he buried the ball in the corner of the net. However, Vidar was also effective in front of goal. Thus, the team from Stavanger took advantage of a mistake in Gneist’s defence, thereby, equalising. Or when Gneist went in front on a beautiful goal, which actually looked like a cross. Or when Gneist made it 3-1 10 minutes before the end of the game taking advantage of a mistake in Vidar’s defence.

It takes two teams to create a good football match. Both Gneist and Vidar can be proud of their performance, but only one team can win gold. Even though Vidar tried hard in the second half, Gneist was a bit more effective, which meant that the team from around Bergen could raise the trophy as winners of Class B17.
