Football to be tight contest
 
 
 
 

If qualifying and friendlies are any indication of what we should expect in Jiddah, the fans are in for a treat. Four teams have legitimate hopes at Gold. The Astorians bring a physical style of play that has brought them an unbeaten record heading into Jiddah. The Trelankans play a style all their own, relying on star striker Antikokis Andreas to provide the scoring punch. The Trelankans and Astorians tied in a match that featured 12 yellow cards and 4 red cards. Though no suspensions shall carry into Jiddah. United Faiths, the third of the Gold Medal hopefulls, their finesse style has won them the warmth of the fans, but can it hold up against the physicality of the other nations, they have not faced either of the two afforementioned Gold medal hopefulls. Akhtendum has been a steamroller since failing to qualify for last year's Games losing merely one match, to Astoria, in the past year. They dominated a solid Straylight Run team 7-0 in their final tuneup.
