In an emotional game draw against RFS

Tonight, in the 27th round of the Latvian Highest league, "Riga Football Club" in an emotional match played 0:0 against RFS . In the last ten minutes we played with nine men. On November 6, in the last match of the season, we will play against "Valmiera".

"Riga" had a good first half of the game. We played safely in defense and also created a couple of good opportunities in the attack. The best moment was for Wesley Nata - the Brazilian midfielder made a good header after the cross from the right side, but the goalkeeper Vytautas Čerņauskas saved the RFS. After the first half of the game, a draw of 0:0.

In the second half, the opponents played more with the ball. RFS created more moments, but Nils Puriņš, who played another stable and safe game, demonstrated a great performance. Unfortunately, in the second part of the second half, the decisive decisions was made by the referee Aleksandrs Anufrijevs. Within ten minutes, the referee sent-off two our players -  Armands Petersons and Wesley Nata. At the end of the match we played without two players, but the team had a strong team character, and in the end the draw - 0:0.
