EAGLES WIN WITH ROUTINE
Serbian White Eagles played tonight in the fifth game of the CSL and managed to beat Royal Toronto FC 3: 1 (1: 1). Eagles did not impress, they only played as good as they needed in order to win. The guests came very motivated, so they played well the first half an hour, and played a furious pressing tactic. The eagles seemed to let them get out, took things into their own hands at the end of the first part, and completely outplayed them in the second part of the game. It was at the start that the Eagles underestimated their opponent, unmotivated, and a little surprised by the aggressiveness and the real pressing, especially in our part of the field. It’s been a long time in the first half hour, our passes were cut off or simply imprecise. Once we stood on the ball, with more running and motive, when they became serious, the question of victory was not questionable. It should be noted that our changes in the second half greatly boosted our attack, especially the debutant for Eagles, eighteen-year-old Dušan Kovačević, who broke his opponent’s defense with his speed and skill.
