A 2-0 win ower Italian opposition Fiorentinaa with goals from Miggy Almiron at The Leazes End in the forst half and from Alexander(Isak) the Great at The Gallowgate End in the 2nd half, sealed this vicory in front of wot looked like a sub 30,000 crowd in sub summer temperatures! (ie: Not much global warmin' roond these parts!)
Sandro Tonali made hiz debut and he created a few good chances, while 17 year old Lewis Miley woz the man of the match with a great display! Elliot Anderson aalso had a great game!
The breakthrough came in the 38th minute when Isak sent a precision pass to Almiron and he colly placed the baall into the Leazes net!
Isak's goal in the 2nd period came in the 82nd minute, when he heeded in a Trippier corner and into the Gallowgate net to collect the 3 points plus 2 bonus points for the 2 goals scored!
