The last week saw top-of-the-table clashes, big upsets, and some more clarity of who are teams to beat in 1FF Season 2.

Round 7 
Round 7 saw one huge upset, some expected wins, a classic between two of the most exciting sides in 1FF, and a bore draw. 
Brazil Amazônia and South London United played out a match that was almost brought alive in the 97th minute as Amazônia broke and looked to be in on goal. In the most professional way Joey Tesselaar, Centre Back for South London stopped the attack and saw red. The game ended 0-0. 
Table-topping Inter Nusantara won 2-1 in Riyadh, FC Angelenos won 3-0 in Naija and Manhattan FC won 1-0 in Bondi. 
Bengaluru Phoenix and Club Sportivo Palermo played out a classic in India, the young visitors going 2-0 up early thanks to goals from Bernardo De Los Santos and Pablo Burgeuño. Bengaluru hit back late in the first half through So Sung-Chul but couldn’t break through again and Palermo boosted their reputation as the most exciting team in the competition with a 2-1 win. 
Which leaves a big shock. Ko Kato missed an extra-time penalty in the Season One Semi-Finals that Tokyo Youth Club eventually lost to Paris St Denis, but this time made no mistake from the spot, slotting home the opener for the visitors in the 35th minute. St Denis pushed but had no answer and eventually conceded a second in the 95th minute, from substitute Kôsuke Maeda. Tokyo climbed off the bottom of the table with the 2-0 win.
