Fans, you asked for Mitchell Clark and he delivered...absolutely nothing. We lose 10-0 on the night.
Port Vale were eliminated at the last 128 stage of the FIFA 20 Ultimate Quaran-Team tournament, after a 10-0 aggregate defeat against Eredivisie outfit FC Emmen
Mitchell Clark was chosen to represent Vale in the Ultimate Quaran-Team tournament, which is a tournament taking place on FIFA 20, between 128 football clubs across the globe.
James Gibbons was required to make a potentially goal-saving tackle after 5 minutes, with Arias bearing down on goal, before the Valiant full-back made a perfect sliding tackle.
FC Emmen made a bright start to the game, and had the chance to take the lead after 10 minutes, but Scott Brown was on hand to save from point blank range.
But Vale grew back into the game following that early scare and five minutes later Nathan Smith’s speculative effort from 30-yards was tipped over the bar by goalkeeper, Dennis Telgenkamp.
And Smith was on hand at the other end of the pitch to prevent Arias, having a free shot on goal after 25 minutes, before Scott Brown was required to make another stunning save.
Unfortunately, Brown and the defence were unable to keep out Arias a second time, as a squared ball across the box left Arias in acres of space to give the Eredivisie side a half-time lead.
Arias added a second to his tally immediately after the break, a nicely well worked move leaving the Valiants defence will little chance of preventing a nice goal.
Frei shortly added Emmen’s third of the game with a strike from just inside the box, with Vale now needing a miracle to progress to the last 64 of the tournament.
Frei added his second and Emmen’s fourth with fifteen minutes of the game remaining, before a network connection failure required a second leg tie to be played, with the aggregate score of 4-0 being carried over.
The second leg started in the same vein for Emmen, with Ben Moussa scoring the first goal of the game by dragging the ball back, before unleashing an effort into the top corner.
Despite the early set-back, Vale began to grow into the game and gave the Emmen defence something to think about.
But just before the break, Kolar added Emmen’s second of the game, and sixth of the tie, with a well-placed finish into the bottom corner.
After the break, Arias and Frei continued to cause the Vale problems, and linked up again to add the Dutch side’s seventh goal of the tie.
Peńa’s arrowed finish then extended Emmen’s lead, but that didn’t deter the Valiants attempts to restore some pride by scoring a goal.
Shaun Brisley’s cameo up front almost came to fruition as he lashed a strike just wide of goal after 70 minutes, before Peńa added his second of the game, and Emmen’s fifth in the 76th minute.
Tom Conlon came closest to grabbing the goal that Vale deserved, but his long range effort was tipped over the bar by the Emmen goalkeeper, before chaos in the Emmen box led to Vale getting joy.
A tenth goal of the tie for Emmen with two minutes remaining led to the end of the game, with Vale bowing out of the competition in the last 128 of the competition.
