Kieffer Moore, with a goal for Gales in the final stretch of the match against Swiss (1-1), darkened the debut of the Swiss team, showy until the last half hour and punished after giving ground after the goal of Breel Embolus who overtook the men of Vladimir Petkovic.
Soccer was unfair to Swiss, who during almost the entire meeting led the reins of a meeting in which faces were seen with the pleasant surprise of France 2016. Gales, semifinalist in the last edition, started the Eurocup excited but with the name of Gareth Bale too much of a hog in all media.

It was not easy for him. Your rival, Swiss, an expert in pointing out ways and not going far, she has a collection of good players at its point of maturity.

And although it took him fifteen minutes to take the reins of the crash, he got what he wanted. It was easy because Rob Page he opted to lock himself in his field with the giant Kieffer Moore like an island waiting for a counterattack and, except for some horseback ride Daniel James, always electric and devilish, Gales did nothing.
