*Played 24th February*

Elwynn 1-0 Craitland
82' - N. Draper

Elwynn opened the third TMC with a late victory over a much-changed Craitland side. Coming off the back of a poor recent record of two qualifying draws, Elwynn shocked the Craits with the scoreline after the latter's last two matches were competitive wins. Nigel Draper's first-time finish past débuting goalkeeper Freddie Pellegrino rounded off a pacy move to put the Elwynnese in the driving seat for a first TMC title.

*Played 9th June*

Arboria 0-2 Elwynn
18' - D. ut ur Aldin
79' - D. Kazlibeletchekh


A confident victory for Elwynn guaranteed the nation a first TMC title, and a glimmer of sporting positivity following recent developments as a result of the civil war which have seen many footballers lose their lives. Dånjal ut ur Aldin's defence-imploding run ended with a goal in the first half, before Dario Kazlibeletchekh's headed finish towards the end of the match secured the win.

Two wins from two make them unreachable at the top of the three-team table, with Arboria and Craitland's final match next week now more use as a pre-World Cup preparation for the latter side rather than in its role in deciding second place here.

*Played 16th June*

Craitland 4-0 Arboria
11' - R. Zen
34' - Ĵ. Ólsen
45' - J. Tórsen
58' - M. Herä


Craitland eased past Arboria in the final TMC match to take second place in the friendly competition. Ross Zen's towering header opened the scoring early on before two further first-half goals put the game beyond any doubt; Ĵulian Ólsen's burst through the defence and slotted finish being followed by a Jan Tórsen half-volley in acres of space right before the interval. The scoring was rounded off before the hour mark through a Morteņ Herä tap-in after the Arborian 'keeper had made an impressive save to deny Tórsen via the crossbar and Arboria never looked like threatening the Craits' third clean sheet in a row, putting them at the foot of the three-team table for the second time.

Craitland's preparations for their thirteenth World Cup finals appearance now continue, with the draw for the tournament's group stage expected to take place in the very near future to decide who they'll face.
