The yellow submarine is imposed by two goals to zero to the Selection of India
There was no place for surprise in the first match of Cañamás Naranja COTIF Femenino. Villarreal won the National Team by two goals to zero. Although the Asians tried to put the Castellón team in a bind, the yellow submarine was superior and added three points in its premiere in the Alcudian tournament.
Villarreal started with energy, which had its first chance when they were only two minutes away, although Sheila crossed her pitch too much, which went away. India wanted to show that it is not passing through this COTIF and Bala was very active, creating danger whenever the ball went through his boots. However, Villarreal went ahead in a convoluted play within the area that, after several rebounds, ended in Sheila’s goal. The Castellón team wanted to carry the weight of the game, but either due to inaccuracies of their own or due to the defensive successes of the Indians, they could not increase their advantage. India had the opportunity to tie with a shot by Ratanbala after a great play by Bala, but he missed. Villarreal was able to score thanks to Ayaki, who tried his luck from afar, but Aditi stopped the shot without problems. India also tried it, with a direct free kick that Bala sent over the crossbar.
Already in the second half, India wanted to reverse the situation and started plugged in. Again, with a direct foul he had the opportunity to tie, Ratanbala’s shot went out. Villarreal also had a double chance on the ball: the foul taken by Prades was cleared by Aditi and the rebound fell on Colonques’ boots, which ran into the Indian goalkeeper again. Colonques herself dared, just a minute later, with a new direct free, although it was far away and the shot went over the goal. India did not give up and had the draw very close, when Bala shot from outside the area and the ball crashed into the stick. With no time to react, a great play by the left wing culminated with a pass from Albeta to Naza, who, alone before the goalkeeper, scored with a brilliant Vaseline. Little more was in store, since as time was running out, both teams had less strength. In fact, India continued in its effort to close distances, although it did so with more heart than success. In the end, comfortable victory of a Villarreal who presents his candidacy to win the tournament trophy.
India dominates Bolivia and stalks the top positions of the female COTIF (3-1)
A double of Ratambala certifies the superiority of the Asians in the encounter
August 3, 2019.- India dominated the match and managed to defeat a combative Bolivia thanks to a better combinatorial game, adding a 3-1 that allows it to dream of the pass to the final of the COTIF Cañamás Women’s Soccer. Both teams jumped on the pitch of Els Arcs with the idea of settling at the top of the standings. It was the Bolivians – yesterday with a shirt and white socks and green pants – who starred in the kick-off. And who got ahead on the scoreboard. A Doerksen center was poisoned as it approached the rival goal, causing the Indian defense Sweety to score at home after not understanding with his goalkeeper. It was the first minute and the electronic had already moved. After the initial blow, the Asians – who yesterday played as locals dressed in blue coats – tried to answer with lightning actions. And the fruit of his push came five minutes into the game. Bala, with the number 10 behind him, chained several controls and with a warm right he managed to match the score after five minutes. From that moment on, the match was gradually stressed and the game was diluted, with a large number of inaccuracies caused in large part by the high pressure deployed by both teams. However, it was the selection of India that tried most, with up to three clear occasions that for one reason or another did not end in goal. In fact, in the 27th minute of the first half, Dangmei threw a rebound to the crossbar after a distant foul.
The beginning of the second part continued with the same script, with India showing greater momentum. In fact, 45 seconds after the restart Ratambala connected a center from the left and the ball ended up kissing the net. Minutes later, the referee annulled a good goal after a remarkable new move by Dangmei for an illegal control and in the 47th minute a spectacular volley from Sanju ran into a good stop by the Bolivian goalkeeper. Ratambala signed the double in 58 and certified the Indian superiority, which was later embodied as a distant shot of Bala that did not enter by little. India was better and perched on the top positions of the classification.
The Asians score seven goals after a football exhibition by Grace Dangmei
The women’s team of India is a stronger team than the one that could be seen in COTIF just a year ago and that shows in every game. On the fourth day, the Asians swept the Mauritanian team, which they thrashed with some comfort. In the end, 0-7. The Asians dream of the end of day 8 and are doing things to be in it.
It had only been fifteen minutes of play when Ratanbala gave a great pass to Manisha, who finished off goal without much opposition; Salimata Samba stretched spectacularly and stopped her. Although it was the prelude to what would come next, since in the third minute the Indians came forward thanks to a goal from Manisha herself, who took advantage of Grace Dangmei’s excellent pass. The latter, precisely, would become the author of the second of his own, in a play that generated certain doubts for a possible foul. He looked for the Mauritania comeback, with a very active Meue Cisse. The ‘9’ Mauritanian had up to three times in less than a minute, but in two of them he ran into Aditi’s good interventions, the third went off. The Indian National Team dominated the match, even at times with a slower pace. His superiority was evident with the play on the right wing of Grace Dangmei, who served in third place for the Indian: Bala did not fail within the area. The room did not wait, with the same protagonists but with the roles changed: Bala attended Grace Dangmei. The result at rest could be more bulky, but the Indian wasted several very clear occasions.
The second part started with the need to use the VAR, which granted a penalty to the Indians. Salimata Samba stopped the penalty to Sanju. The Asians dominated the match, but they stayed for several minutes without generating danger. In fact, the fifth goal came from a penalty around the 50th minute of play; this time Ashalata did not miss the launch from eleven meters. After a few minutes of relative calm, history was repeated: again the VAR served to point out a penalty in favor of the Indians; Ashalata put the sixth. The Indians did not take a break and a minute later scored the seventh, and last, Daya.

Bahrain premieres at COTIF with victory
The Asian team is superior to Mauritania in the first match of the tournament
The opening match of the 2019 edition of COTIF did not disappoint. He starred in two teams with spells, which showed that they have come to l’Alcúdia to fight for every ball in liza. Mauritania and Bahrain are two teams formed by young players with the whole future ahead. For football players aware of the opportunity they have when participating in this competition. They know that the Els Arcs field is a window to professional football. At ten o’clock at night – the schedule, with no delay in between – began to play the compasses of the national anthems of both squads. Five minutes later, after the forced protocol, the ball was already stealing through the grass. It was combined Bahrain, in a red uniform, who was in charge of the initial serve.
The initial minutes, as usual in these meetings, were scoring, with both teams studying the opponent. In the first half, Yassime Benmasour stood out above the others, the 10th of Bahrain. After a ride of merit, he left for the memory a pass to the hole that ended in goal of his partner Nemer in the 23rd minute. However, the referee canceled it out of play. All players with 10 behind are required to be different. To distill magic.
After the initial hesitations, Mauritania began to let go and show his powerful physique. Proof of this were the two occasions they chained in the 24th minute. A distant foul surprised Bahrain’s goalkeeper for his strange pot, although he managed to stop the ball with difficulty. The back corner ended with the ball hitting the stick.
As expected, Bahrain 10 starred in the next danger move. An indecision of the defense of Mauritania ended with a center-shot of his that left little. The first half ended with the first substitution and the first card: Sarr (Mauritania) hit an opponent who escaped through the band and received the yellow card as punishment.
The second part was quieter. Both teams were reluctant to open ranks and the match was gradually locked. The carousel of changes, with up to four at a time, caused the game to blur. The entry of new players brought strength and the tone of the match hardened. The fate of the match changed on the 23rd of the second half, when a Mauritanian defender measured badly and swept an omnipresent Benmansour. His partner Alromaihi cheated the goalkeeper and threw down the center and satin. His goal was worth the win.
In the 75th minute Benmasour reappeared with a dangerous shot, but met the rival goalkeeper. Everything was decided with Mahdi’s goal in the 82nd minute, after an assist from a Khalifa incisor. The forward starred in a class maneuver, getting rid of the rival and marks a goalkeeper already sold
Oleg Levin’s pupils finish the game in the final minutes of the first half
Russia beat Bahrain 5-1 in a match that was decided in the last five minutes of the first half. Sadulaev and Suleimanov made a difference to an Asian defense that could not stop them at any time. Both teams faced the game with very different dynamics: the Asians won Mauritania 2-0 in their debut and the Baltics lost for the same result against Spain in their first game of this year’s edition. The meeting was then presented as a kind of thermometer to measure the possibilities of both teams. And he did not disappoint. The conclusions are clear. The fate of the initial serve fell on Russia and Oleg Levin’s pupils entered the turf determined to strike first. Thus, at nine seconds they added their first occasion. A long ball thrown from the defense resulted in a close shot that the Asian defense managed to save in extremis. Both teams then began measuring their forces, displaying high pressure that made it difficult to run the game. An indecision of Bahrain’s goalkeeper resulted in a new scare and a blow with one of his teammates, which caused the first change. With the game stopped, Muñiz Ruiz decided to consult the VAR after glimpsing what had happened after several struggles in the Russian area and the subsequent viewing caused him to decree a penalty in favor of Bahrain. Alromaihi was the chosen pitcher and his shot was blocked by Poletaev, but the Asian 23 scored after winning the goalkeeper’s rejection. It was the 10th minute of the game and Bahrain was ahead on the scoreboard.
It was then that the Russian roller began to engage, with a stellar Sadulaev who took control of the game from the left wing. Bahrain tried to get rid of the rival domain with distant shots, but the control was of the team that wore a red jacket. After several failed occasions, Korstov matched the score with a right from the crescent that fooled the goalkeeper. The Russian machine began to carburete. And in a few minutes he finished the game. In 37 the Lokomotiv Suleimanov player advanced his team, in 38 Sadulaev left a great play and scored with a shot to the long stick and in 42 Suleimanov signed his double after a braided play from the left. Russia already owned the meeting.
The second part was much quieter. Both teams were aware that the score was decided, so the pace of the match matched. The carousel of changes, habitual in the second parts, also helped to blur the game little by little. Failed and inaccurate passes took over the game and only flashes of some players were appreciated, such as some isolated ride from Benmasour, on the 10th of Bahrain, impotent against Russian defensive engineering. The match ended with a last goal from Sevikyan, who signed the 1-5 in the 80th minute. Russia showed its best face. It is a team that can go from less to more in the tournament.
La Rojita controls all phases of the match without excessive efforts
Spain beat Bahrain (2-0) after dominating all phases of the match. La Rojita is perched at the top of the table and dreams of being in the final of the 2019 edition of COTIF. Both teams reached the seventh day of the 2019 edition of COTIF tied to points in the standings, having added one victory each in their first two games. However, the equality in the classification was not transmitted in the field: Spain passed over the Persian team and showed credentials to be in the final. David Gordo, national coach, played a sanction match for protests in the locker room tunnel after the game against Argentina and Pablo Castillo took his place on the bench watching as his pupils dominated the match from start to finish.
La Rojita dressed in white and gray yesterday – they played as visitors – and from the beginning it was known superior. Gradually the chances came, with a first distant shot from Beñat in minute 2 and a subsequent shot from Baena as the first occasions of consideration. Diego Collado, league champion with Villareal, then took the witness in the Spanish attack, but his shots – some at close range – could not find the net. The team forgave again and again before an orderly and serious Bahrain, but very aware of its limitations. Spain was better technically and physically, but the electronic did not move. In the end it was Marc Tenas who opened the can, after connecting a center-shot of his teammate at Atlético de Madrid Cedric, in the 26th minute. Spain percused again and again, moving the ball and being faithful to the style of the absolute team that became world champion under the tutelage of Vicente del Bosque: based on random game patterns and quick associations that end up surpassing the rival in his field.
Fruit of the domain and good work of the selection came the second goal, initialed by Collado, which this time did focus the peephole correctly and finished off a center launched from the right by Casas. Spain widened the distance and dominated pleasure. The script of the party was already written before an Asian squad that barely disturbed Fortuño. Only Benmansour, with a shot after a rejection in a foul, looked shyly. The Asians lacked gunpowder against a much better rival.
A quiet football match
Life remained the same in the second part, with Spain commanding the green thanks to its controlled and leisurely game and with Bahrain defending itself as it could. Tenas starred in a slightly orthodox shot on his back in the 43rd minute after a side foul, which left shortly. And the game, weighed down by the usual carousel of changes in the second half, relaxed as the minutes passed. The rush of the selection yesterday visitor followed but the goals shone by his absence. Baena signed one of the best plays of the second half with a shot of merit that the Persian goalkeeper stopped after a notable stretch in the 27th minute. Over and over again, La Rojita moved the ball correctly, but the goal did not come. Spain took a rent of two goals, perhaps low given the domain shown.
