SLAGELSE (Ekstra Bladet): Before the quarter finals of the Ekstra Bladet Skolefodbold between Marievangsskolen and Trørødskolen had your midtbaneprofil Noah Gottschalck gambled a little at the result:
- I think we win. I don't know as much about their team, but do not think that they can be quite bad, when now they have reached so far. My best bet must be 2-0 to us.
Unfortunately for the 15-year-old had not put money on the table, for the tender went clean home. Trørødskolen just won with 2-0 and is now in the semi-final in the world's largest skoleturnering.
After the excellent kredsfinale back in november, there were great expectations for the winners of the Sealand North, who played a bang in the last game before the winter break. It was a repetition of the kredsfinalen from the year before, where they lost 0-2 to Hedegårdsskolen. It was titled the spoils with a strong 4-1 victory, and allowed to play today's quarter-final.
It came to pass after a really worth seeing as a struggle in which the just Noah Gottschalck was the great an author and experience. 'The power plant secured the quarter-finals'. we wrote in the Ekstra Bladet after the two goals and plenty of delights from the 15-year-olds.
It was very far from a repetition of the things we got to see in Slagelse. Here was neither the team or Noah even at the top.
- It was a totally different match than in kredsfinalen, it ran not quite in the same high tempo, it sounded honestly from Noah.
- There was not the same flow in our game. Both because they were good to get covered us, but we were just not good enough to hold on to the ball forward the track.

You could also just say, it was something worse mess. For it it was really. Gone was the high pressure, the many attacks and the desire to score. To smear his opponent backwards out of the stadium. The whole thing was tame. The boys seemed more as if they were on the way to a few hours of German than to stand with one leg in the finale, so many dream of and few experience.
in Particular, was not together in the last 30-35 meters. The ball was held up well behind, good conducted by towering Magnus Vernon, who as captain has mastered his own half and with his physique get won the most. But about mid-race it too often out in the hat and glasses. Trørødskolen was also the home team's superior physically, and they had five-six highest players on the field, it was also not utilized.

But along the ground, they can also a part, it showed Noah in the last round.
- It was not my best performance today. I got too often lost in either the balance sheet or the ball and should perform better than it is here, it sounded liberating, honestly and openly for the victory.
He would not blame to have been a little småsyg the last week and fight with asthma, but it could perhaps explain a bit why there was not over quite so much.

Two goals and with in almost it all in the last round was 'followed up' by no dangerous experiments, or otherwise worth writing home about in the quarter-finals. Noah is the most often receive the ball from the back of the people, especially from the Magnus Vernon, and wont so to drive the ball and hold up for the dangerous attacks. Against Marievangskolen the error rate was tremendous for the team at the last part of the course, and Noah even ought to also get more out of it spilovertag, the team had especially in the second half.
- I am satisfied with the defensive, but offensively it was not good enough. Longer is not, he punches real.
the Team really miss a leader in midfield, who can direct the troops and show what needs to be done. Noah is the obvious candidate, he has the ball the most and see the possibilities. Not everyone plays on an equal high level to everyday life, they clearly need to get a little help on where to run and when. It should be the role of the team and the coach give Noah. In the quarterfinals it was not, as both Noah and the others were more silent than in an hour at school.
the Technique is there, the same is ideas. But it was just too little on a day that should just be forgotten when you look away from the victory. Photo: Henrik Schou
the Madness and the willingness to really triumph was not to see or feel. It was so clear last, when returning to his native germany over Hedegårdsskolen was so important to them. Here we got both blodnæse and wild jubelscener. That they could get a step closer to their life's biggest battle in the tournament which has been running since 1961, it was impossible to mark on them or look in their faces. They must back on track, if they will in the final. Otherwise is it just in German in the school.
the Finals are played 25.april in Vejle, but the first stands on the semi-final on Wednesday 10.april.
How to say Noah on to reach the semifinals - and the promise of the goals:
HOW to see the will and urge to win at any cost. It was in kredsfinalen from november. Are we going to see again in the next round? Photo: Henrik Schou
