The result of Melbourne Victory match came up as draw that Joe Di Guilio, the Balmain Tigers head coach said the word ‘incredible’ repeatedly after watching his club’s game. The match was like the ultimate match between Goliath versus David. Melbourne Victory is a semi-professional club that can join the third tier of NSW football drawn to host the reigning A-League champions.
Balmain reserved a space at a Sydney pub since they predicted their dream would come true. They reserved a place where the whole team with their friends and family were invited to watch the draw match live together. During watching the match no one left disappointed and everyone was so excited.
Guilio stated his excitement that when the last four balls were left in the bowl they just jumped up and down. He also said that the match was incredible that he could not tell us how they were excited. The match gave the clubs like his club to match up against the big teams. The match was once in a lifetime for some of the players so it was very incredible.
One of the magic things happened in the FFA Cup is that it makes a dream comes true. There will be an extra spring in the step at training in the next few weeks since the inner west club prepares for their biggest game in the future. The club is actually the small club and they have only few people but they were going to work very hard on all the logistics as well as the setting up for the big day to come. Guilio added that the players would were going to have to train harder compared to the previous training they had. Although they have to train harder they were so excited that he was sure they were going to be putting in 150 per cent every day.
There is another small club, Sorrento FC that also feels excited about the draw. The last season’s A-League grand finalists Sydney FC will host the match with the Western Australian state side coached by Jamie Harnwell. He said that he was looking forward to that battle against Graham Arnold but he was sure that the players were looking even more to it on the pitch against a very great side. The club expects nothing but 100 per cent effort. They were very proud they were given this chance and they were going to try their best in beating Sydney FC.
