Just another David and Goliath story, the champion team beats the team of champions!
I like the moral of the story; how can a team with a "never, ever give up" and a belief that "we will win this" wins against all odds?
Is this a lesson for us? Can our pre-season optimism (IP, AK, DK, MM?) be transformed into the team's performance?

And us Messi available as a goal kicker ? Nice round the corner penalty strike.
We could stick him on a wing Fitzhenry/ Conlon style.
Somehow don’t think he’d fit under the cap 🤣🤣
