Masters Over 35 football – Game 3
GB 5 South Africa 1
Team GB’s Over 35 footballers romped into the semi-finals with an emphatic 51 victory over South Africa at Neve Shaanan on Thursday night.
Goals from Paul Linger (2), Darren Dryer (2) and Paul Lenchner completed an exhilarating display of fluid, attacking football on the same pitch that GB’s open team had lost against France 24 hours earlier.
Ex-Charlton midfielder Paul Linger opened the scoring early on with a superb curling free-kick into the top corner.
