FTC played out a 0-0 draw against Sparta Praha in its last training match in Spain.
Tuesday afternoon Thomas Doll’s team ran onto pitch to play its last pre-season game in the Spanish training camp. The opponent Sparta Praha took a better start and created the first chance of the match. Following the first 10 minutes however the Fradi attacks became more dangerous thanks to the great performance of Amadou among others. Thomas Doll sent many new players onto pitch for the second half, but the unseen lineup stayed stable, often with the saves of Dibusz. Since none of the teams scored, the result remained 0-0.
“As the trees of Kosztolányi, so belonged I to Üllői Street. My foes might have said: Albert loiters on the FTC pitch like the trees from Üllői Street with a slight difference; they don’t have their arms on their hips. Well, I was indeed loitering; what’s more, sometimes with my arms on my hip, but between two loitering, I performed some tricks, scored some goals and pleased a few hundred thousand football friends. For me, the FTC stadium meant everything: I, the lad from the countryside, could have become and became somebody there. MY FORTUNE LEAD ME THERE SINCE SOMEWHERE UP IN THE SKY IT HAD BEEN DETERMINED THAT MY LIFE WOULD BE FERENCVÁROS.” - Flórián Albert
