Round 3

Riyadh Stars had the #2 draft pick in the off-season and picked up young Spanish Centre Back Enzo Montiel. Monteil has started forging an impressive partnership with 21-year-old CB Halil Narin and Riyadh were dominant in a 4-1 win over Naija United. Two of The Stars’ goals were scored by Rashid Al Balushi.

Manhattan FC traveled to England to play South London United and increased the pressure on South London Head Coach Alex Davis with a 2-1 win. Dale Ramos got back to goalscoring ways with a double - his first goals since Round 15 in Season 1.

Inter Nusantara want you to believe that the hype is real and backed that up, recording a 2-0 win over Bengaluru Phoenix - the goals were scored by, who else but, Bas Holsink and Segara Biru #iconic.

Brasil Amazônia and FC Angelenos shared the points, and Tokyo Youth Club recorded a strong 3-1 win over Bondi FC in Tokyo but the biggest surprise of the season so far was in Paris.

The young Club Sportivo Palermo side have started the season well, but Paris St Denis are the reigning champions and improved their squad well over the off-season. Palermo showed they have something special this season and their young stars shone - Moyano, Sabaté and Pablo Burgueño gave Palermo a stunning 3-0 win. Catch the replay here.

Round 4

Round 4 was full of big results, CS Palermo kept up the story that they are the team to beat in 1FF Season 2 with an impressive win in the top-of-the-table clash with FC Angelenos.

Bengaluru Phoenix got their season back on track, winning a thriller 3-2 over Tokyo Youth Club - goals from Pal, Dasar and Gerônimo Martins were the difference, despite a brace from Tokyo’s Rafael Hauffe.

Naija United went crazy, smashing a shell-shocked Brasil Amazônia side who just wanted to get out of Lagos. The 4-0 scoreline was perhaps a little flattering as Baba Fall - the Naija ‘keeper picked up Player of the Match and his saves covered up some defensive frailties, but all the glory went to Kone, Akande, Ogude and Chibueze who got the goals.

Inter Nusantara’s impressive start to the season was checked by a Manhattan side who are themselves finding form. The Empire’s 3-2 win in Central Park was secured with a 15 min first-half burst of three goals. Holsink and Biru again scoring for Nusantara, but this time, with nothing to show for it.

Paris St Denis left it late but overcame South London United in London - the story that Adrien Grondin, London’s Player-of-the-Season-Frenchman may be better off in Paris rolls on.
