Riga United Crash Out of Riga Cup
Riga United crashed out of the Riga Cup yesterday evening suffering a 7-5 loss to FK Rinuzi in what can only be described as a very open and entertaining cup tie.
Riga United raced into a 2-0 lead after 8 mins. An own goal and goal in-form Karim gave Riga United a deserved lead.
Rinuzi hit back with 2 goals in 4 mins to make it 2-2.
Riga United then hit back to make it 4-2 Karim completing a 1st Half Hat Trick with very well taken goals. Riga United then missed a couple of clear chances to increase the lead before Rinuzi hit back again to make it 3-4 and then with the last kick of the half a shot that hit the bar, hit goal keeper Murat to roll into the net. 4-4 at Half time.
2 very soft goals at the start of the 2nd half gave Rinuzi the lead for the 1st time... Leading 6-4 United came back to make it 6-5, Marco slotting in from the edge of the box.
Pushing for the goal that would take it to extra Rinuzi broke to make it 7-5 in the last min of the game.
Unlucky for United, but again sloppy goals cost United a place in the Semi- Final vr RTU.
Joint Man of the Match Karim for his hat trick and great running throughout the game and Josu who did a great job at Right Back.
