Match 3: Roger Ver 2-1 Willy Woo
Both teams took turns leading this match. Controversial crypto player Roger Ver started off the game strong, with Willy Woo failing to complete the majority of his passes. But at the 30-minute mark, the game began to favor Willy Woo. Roger Ver wasn’t able to maintain possession and Willy Woo managed to take the lead, clipping the ball over the goalie.
Roger Ver must have given one inspirational half-time pep talk. After making a few subs, Roger Ver managed to equalize in the 48th minute, driving the ball home. At this point, the atmosphere had changed. All eyes were on Roger Ver. Could this crypto player make a comeback?
And he did! In injury time, Willy Woo clumsily gave up a free-kick on the edge of the box, and Roger Ver drove it home, curling the ball into the far corner of the net.
The game ended 2-1 to Roger Ver.
Roger Ver: 3 Points; Second in Group F; Behind Mexico
