Round 17 Review of One Future Football

Tsubasa Tanaka equalised for Tokyo in the 71st minute, but Dani Viana scored two minutes later to restore Amazonia’s lead. Guilherme Orlando killed the game in the 88th minute.

Next to Sydney, Australia where the biggest surprise of the season happened as Bondi FC demolished FC Angelenos 5-1. Bondi, who were bottom going into the game, saw teenager Ash Jones score two along with strikes from Zlatko Kozbasic, Cassiano Rodrigues and Sotiris Charitos. Adam Osei replied for Angelenos, who were top at the start of play, with a thunderous volley, but it was all about Bondi. A stunning win.
