Legia Warsaw lost 2-3 to Ecuadorian FC Barcelona in the first Florida Cup match. Jarosław Niezgoda and William Remy scored for Legia.

The Champions of Poland started the first half of the match in the line up known from league matches. In the 7th minute, after the action of Michał Kopczyński with Sebastian Szymańska, Jarosław Niezgoda scored opening goal in a typical way for him. Unfortunately in the next minutes rivals started to play better and control the game. In the 19th minute Caicedo equalized with a beautiful shot from the 16th meter. Arkadiusz Malarz was helpless in this situation. It was not a good game for our goalkeeper. Three minutes later he made a mistake, after which the Ecuadorians scored another goal.


In the 28th minute there was third goal for Barcelona again after a strong shot from a distance. The Ecuadorians were a better team in the first half. This part can be summed up by the word: tragedy, especially because the injuries were suffered by Sebastian Szymański and Adam Hlousek.


In the second half the coach decided on a completely different compositin. The new players of Legia received a chance to debut. They, especially Domagoj Antolić and William Remy, were the best on the field. Croat was a key player in the middleline, and Remy as a defensive midfielder presented himself very well and scored a goal. 


Legia is sixth in the Florida Cup. The next game will take place on 21 January with Atletico Nacional.
