Tehran Times – YADZ, Moghaevmate Golsapoosh again impressed the beach soccer world as they ran past Lokomotiv Moscow to secure the top spot in the table of the Eurasia Beach Soccer Cup.
The win by the mighty Persian side, combined with the two-point win by Sporting Clube over Spaniards Levante UD, made Moghaevmate Golsapoosh the champions of this maiden edition of this transcontinental club showdown.
The 2-0 opening run for the Muscovites did not harm Iranian expectations. Their mental strength and the push by their passionate supporters uplifted Moghaevmate Golsapoosh, who felt strong enough to face the strike exchange in the last part of the game, beachsoccer.com wrote.
In that third period, the hosts led a 3-1 run that changed things on their favour, making them champions of the Eurasia Beach Soccer Cup 2017.
In the first game of the day, a stunning performance from Pablo was not enough for Levante against a Sporting Clube side packed with Portuguese internationals, who knew how to make their wider experience prevail on the sand.
Despite seeing the game go to extra time, Ricardinho sealed the win for the Lisbon side with his second goal in the additional period.
That win, notwithstanding, left the Leões with no chance of claiming the cup in Yadz, as not even a win in regular time over hosts Moghaevmate Golsapoosh on Wednesday will get them enough points.
