France advances to EC 2010 Final

Category: European Championship - published 2010-07-27 by EFAF

It was a remarkable day for the French football program. After a 50-0 blow out against Great Britain the French team is qualified for the first time for the gold medal game in a European Championship. Wetzlar seems to be a good place for the French national team. 48 hours after they beat Sweden the could also win their 2nd match in the B pool. After the victory the French team is also qualified for the 4th World Championship which will be held in Austria next year.

From the first snap on the French team dominated the match on both sides of the ball. QB Max Sprauel completed 23 of 33 passes and three touchdowns. He could get connected to nine different receivers. But also the running game was decent. Five different ball carriers were used to gain 161 yards on the ground. It was nearly a perfect day for the french football federation FFFA. It was no surprise the Sprauel was elected for MVP on the French side.

On the other side the GB lions tried to perform as good as the could but were never able to handle the pressure for the French defense. Their former NFLE running backs Jermaine Allen and Michael Andrew were held to only 34 yards. “Our front five was not able to open the holes”, GB Lions head coach Riq Ayub stated after the match. For Great Britian WR Clive Palumbo was elected for MVP. He had three catches for 37 yards. The GB lions were only able for a total combine of 176 yards – only two were achieved by their running game.

Before the match team Sweden showed the EFAF family stands together in every situation. The British team had only their local club helmets. As EFAF rules requests a unique outfit the Swedish team offered their blue helmets to the GB lions. But even this gentle gesture could not help the lions to score any point on the game.
