The 2021 Futsal Super League season has come with nothing short of surprises, with experienced sides struggling, one may think Futsal is that easy for the newcomers – is it?
Synergy and Big Talent might get you to thinking that way, but it has not been straightforward if you looked elsewhere, maybe at Kampala Junior Team.
Save for Synergy who have won five in six games, and being the only unbeaten team after the group stages. Big Talent found themselves whipped though they put their shock behind them as quickly as it was required.
Both novices now find themselves facing off in the semis. Synergy looking a heavier side, their duo of Travis Mutyaba and Yasin Sabir shall decide matters matched against Farouk Tumwesigye and Faisal Wabyoona on the other side of the court. Either way, we have a great game to behold.
With winds in their collective sail, Synergy head coach Brian Senyondo will stick to his winning methods and expect nothing below par as expressed while speaking to media ahead of the much-anticipated tie.
“The team has so far performed quite well. We have won five out of the six games we have played and drawn once. We were underdogs at the start, but now we are potential title contenders, and we are fully focused on the semi-final tie,” Ssenyondo told media.
“All the boys are in a good shape. Ivan Irinimbabazi will be back from suspension after missing the last game and will be available for selection.”
“The semis present to us with an opportunity to reach the finals. We have come this far keeping our heads up, focusing on winning every game in sight.”
“Big Talent is a good side with good players and is arguably a big challenge to us, but we are up for the task. We head into this game with only one aim of winning the game,” he added.
A parking lot for redeemed Park
Park Futsal Club appeared very out of sorts in the first round and did not afford a win. But once they got one against Kisenyi, they sent a message of redemption.
And now, though with a stealthy feeling, will have a shot at the finals rubbing off against a descent Mengo Futsal Club who only swallowed the humble pie as late as Match Day 6.
Mengo will want to forget that Big Talent loss so quickly, and unfortunately that they only have a semifinal to deal with.
Ismail Bruhan has built a mentally strong team but now stand their biggest test on how strong that groomed culture is, especially coming off the back of a first defeat.
All will come to pass if they do not see a way through Park, a side as fresh as Round 2 but as determined as any previous champion can be.
