Disaster in Switzerland

FC Basel defeated Legia 1:6 in the second game of the Uhren Cup in Switzerland. Legia's defenders made some simple mistakes in the first half. The Swiss quickly established a lead and then added another goal just a minute before half-time. Iwański scored the only goal for Legia, but this wasn't enough for FC Basel today. They replied with a goal from Pascal Schurpf and added another two just before the final whistle. It is the biggest defeat since 2001 when Legia lost to Valencia CD 1:6 in the second round of UEFA Cup at Mestalla Stadium. Next week, Legia will play against a Belarusian side FK Homel in the pre-eliminary round of UEFA Cup.

I hope we'll see Legia trashing Homel something around 3:0. The fantastic thing is that TVP2 is going to broadcast both UEFA Cup matches of Polish teams. Amazing:O

Player from Cameroon, Mbongo Alexandre Mbella. He is 22 and his club is Caiman Club de Douala. Legia is testing him, but I don't know is he good enough for our team or not.

Legia will face FK Moscow in 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup; it's quite good team but also beatable. I hope for a good result and promotion to the next round. I can't wait for the Warszawa derby though.
