Consi and Bricktania Tie in International Friendly

On a rainy day in Resiburg, Consi tied Bricktania 2 - 2 after coming off a win from the Brikjian Cup final. What started as an even game was broken when Bricktanian striker Fredrick Carmicheal headed the ball to the back of the net in the 15th minute. Consian striker Alexander Greco found a crack in the Brickitanian defense and scored in the 27th minute. After halftime in the 51st minute, a Bricktanian player was yellow carded, awarding Consi a free kick. Consian Striker David Cedia kicked the ball to Sebastian Gomez (Midfielder) who headed it in. Michael Lewis scored again for Bricktania in the 71st minute with a beautiful upper 90 shot from 10 meters outside the box. The game went scoreless from then until the end of the match.

"It was a good game," said Consian midfielder Andre Goodman, "both teams were evenly matched. We tried our best, and they tried theirs. There are certainly things we have to improve on, but I'm happy with our performance today. A tie coming off of the Brikjian Cup is fine by me."

The Consi National Football Team plays Canada on August 18 and the Isle of Bricks in September or October. They are also involved in Euro 2012 qualifiers in group I.
