Tango Squad FC vs Hashtag Utd | #TangoCup | Old Trafford


Hashtag United and Tango Squad! Referee! AON TRAINING COMPLEX
CARRINGTON, MANCHESTER SEASON FINALE
TANGO SQUAD FC VS HASHTAG UTD Welcome to Manchester. Massive couple of days ahead of us. Jack, remember being here a year ago? It’s amazing to be there.
Great atmosphere. I’m excited to take it all in again. Last time it was bad result for us, but this time we have the chance
to make it better. We’re obviously missing some players. A big loss for us,
the MVP Komel’s picked up an injury. I thought he was man of the match
in the Santa Ana game. His energy is going to be lost. We’re also missing Victor.
Again – injury. But we’re fortunate
that the Tango League were able to recruit
two or three players. This is how we’re going to set up:
a 4-3-3. As we progressed through the season, one of the real positives was
some of our build-up play was excellent. How do we take all that, and also have a bit at the top end
of the pitch where it matters? Carlos, you’re going to play
as a false 9. Yeah. In terms of your ability
to go past players … different class. You can attract
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 players into you. If Carlos has got the ball,
where does he needs runners? -Behind.
-Beyond him, coming out here. -Yeah.
-Yeah? The final thing to note is that if the game is a draw tomorrow
after 90 minutes, it’ll be straight to penalties. Have a think now,
if you’d be willing to step up. Take it to penalties
and I’ll do the rest. It’s been a special year guys,
and it’s a special place, and we’re all really fortunate
to have one last go at getting it right. Before we start the session,
joining us from Tango League London, is going to be Helgz. “Mr No Entries” is here! Boots looking good,
kit looking good, not sure about the headband. We’re going to start with a warmup. Most importantly,
I’m going to be watching you Ehsan. You’ve obviously come back from injury. If it’s not feeling right,
you’ve got to be honest, OK? Let’s warm up properly and make sure
you give yourself every chance, OK? Let’s have two lines over here, guys. Race, race! We’re here at Carrington,
I’m blown already. Helgz, big man. -I’m excited for tomorrow.
-Big game. One touch to start off with. Play! Good feet young lad! I’m absolutely buzzing. But I’m more excited for tomorrow. Hopefully, put right
what we didn’t in Paris and Madrid. I’m feeling good at the moment,
I can say I’m at 90-100%. I will play with the ball a little bit,
and after that, I’ll see. -How’s the session gone today?
-Session’s been decent. But … who are they? What you doing here in our session? Spies, fam! Spies! Get out, we don’t want you here! Me and Stampy came in here and said:
you guys have a pretty decent … We’ll leave you here,
you can fan us if you want. -Cheerleaders.
-Cheerleaders! They can stay; I don’t mind. It’s a big pitch, but we don’t need
to press the whole thing. You got to judge it. Can you go?
When can you go? How hard can I go?
Based on what you see in front of you. These are guidelines from me. You’re the players. You’re playing.
You make the decisions, yeah? I reckon Hashtag
are an effective team as footballers, but if we stick to what we know, we can turn them over, no problem. Our season went well.
We got promoted. Won the league, obviously. Hashtag and that. It’s a privilege to be here.
I’m so buzzing. As a Man United fan,
I can’t think of anywhere better to be. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so it’s something for us
to really enjoy and embrace. Tomorrow is my 22nd birthday, so what could be better than playing
against Tango at Old Trafford? I’ve seen a little bit of the Tango Squad. Individually, there’s lots
of talent and flair. I think where we hold
an advantage over them is the amount
that we’ve played together. Pretty evenly matched
if you compare the two. We’re coming for Tango FC as well. I’m not going to boast too much,
but I think Hashtag are ready. -How many goals are you going to score?
-Three. -Three goals.
-I’m scoring one. -Two.
-One. -Two.
-Two. Only one. -How many goals do you want to score?
-Five. Five? Twenty goals.
Hashtag you’ve got to be careful. I’m just going to get 20 nutmegs, maybe.
Let’s go for that instead. OLD TRAFFORD
MANCHESTER We’re on our way
to Old Trafford for our final. Ready and focused for the final,
make sure of it. -Are you ready today or not?
-Yes, yes. Theatre of Dreams! What you boys saying? Ready for war! That is not too bad! We’re finally here! Gold! I like gold! No Entry! Look at this pitch. -We’re at Old Trafford.
-Amazing. Diego sending it to his mum.
He says: “mum I made it! I’m here!” Smells like … pannas. What you got to say
to the fans when you score? Yeah? -That means a goal’s coming, innit?
-Yeah, you know it. First of all, I’m a United fan.
Being here is just crazy. Last time I came here,
I was about 9-10 years old. This is banging. I never thought next time I came here
I’d be playing on this pitch. Hopefully, we’ll be lifting
that golden trophy at the end of the day. I’ve been a United fan since birth. -You better kill it then.
-I have to. -It’s inevitable …
-The trophy is golden, like your boots. I’m really moved to be able
to set foot like this in Old Trafford which I’ve only seen on TV. Excited to get on the pitch
and starting playing tonight. This is a dream for so many people
becoming a reality. So, just a really cool opportunity. I hope to score a goal here,
walk off victorious with my friends, I want to leave my mark here. -I’m ready for this.
-Imagine this place roaring as well. “Ole’s at the wheel.” Is this what we’re going
to be picking up later? Don’t touch it; it’s bad luck. It’s an honour to be here in general, but it being my birthday makes it
that little bit extra special. I sat actually on that bench, not for anything special,
just to sit on the bench. Get to do it again, won’t you? This is very special. This is amazing,
yeah, fantastic. Grab a seat; find your places. At the end of the training session
yesterday, we spoke about having to replace
a couple of the players that are sadly not with us. So, we’ve got two players
joining us from the Tango League. And that’s going to be Johno and Chuck. As you can see, there’s still a couple of places
left in the dressing room. So the two players joining us, firstly it’s going to be United legend,
played over 500 times, won the league title seven times
and the Champions League, and that’s going to be Denis Irwin. The final player,
played for United over a hundred times, South Africa international,
that’s going to be Quinton Fortune. This is where the manager
did his stuff really. Sometimes he had to think on his feet, and if losing or drawing a game,
or things weren’t going according to plan, this would be the 7-8 minutes
that he tuned things on his head and we’d win a game. So, hopefully,
our boss could do that today, Joe? I’ll try. Just following on from what Denis said about trying
to focus on what we do brilliantly. There are strengths
all over that line-up. Looking in that four in that diamond,
if you will, we should all feel really confident …
Jordan, Carlos, Kei, Bilal. If we can get it going and play
with a bit of composure and belief, we’ll be too good for them today. Spencer here from Hashtag United, pitch-side at Old Trafford
with the one and only Wes Brown. And we’re about to play the Tango Cup. It’s going to be Hashtag United
against Tango Squad. Come on! Forward! Then explode to halfway! What was going through your mind
the first time you set foot out here? Bit nervous,
didn’t sleep the night before. But I’m sure these lot
will appreciate it. Many of them never played here
and maybe will never play again. So, I just want them to enjoy it. To be here again
is very important for me because the first result was not good. And that’s what football is about. It’s nice to be here, but the most important thing
is that we win the game. Wes, now it’s time
for score predictions. Tricky. Trying to think neutrally, although
I’d love Hashtag United to win. I’m going to say 3-1 Hashtag United. I think you’ll take the lead early
and probably end up winning, but I think it’s going to be closer. Something like 4-3.
There’s going to be a lot of goals. A great game for the neutral. And if it’s level after 90 minutes,
there’s the prospect of penalties. Penalty shoot-out at Old Trafford.
Doesn’t get much bigger than that. Will it happen? We’re going to find out. It’s been an unbelievable two years. Some of the ups and downs, the opportunities we’ve had
in this dressing room to go and experience what it’s like
to be a professional football player. There’s obvious excitement about
what you’re about to experience. It’s absolutely key
that you do make the most of every chance you get out there. It all comes down to this, tonight, OK? Everyone looks sharp. There’s loads of positivity. We have to carry that belief
all the way through 90 minutes. Players on the bench, you have to have that belief
that when you come on the pitch, you’re going to make something happen,
OK? We’ve got really good players here, really good players
that can win a game of football. All right? Come on now! TANGO SQUAD FC VS HASHTAG UNITED Old Trafford,
this is the Theatre of Dreams, will you please welcome your teams: Hashtag United and Tango Squad! It’s a shot at redemption
for some of Tango Squad after the defeat here last season. A shot at Old Trafford glory
for Hashtag United, at the end of the their first
non-league campaign. Both sides are relative newcomers
on planet football. Both are firmly
in the spotlight tonight. And only one can win. Harry Honesty going to try find his way
past a pacey backline for Tango Squad. Sliding challenge by Sidney Bernasko. Here’s Lee Hursit. Hashtag on the front foot here. Albie, go on Albie! He’s done well. And the challenge
came flying in to stop him. Downer, who normally is a right-back,
a left-winger at the moment. Very nice. I’ve seen him in the warmup, and I was saying he looks like
he knows what he’s doing. Carlos Omabegho. Ooh, I could see that coming. A Ricky Evans speciality. And now, does Denis Irwin
take this free kick? Does he step up? Can I shout? Denis, take it! First test for Jamie Jackson
in the Hashtag goal perhaps. -Good one.
-Good hands. It was definitely on target,
so you have to give him credit. Both got there at the same time. I think he needs
to just touch it a little bit. Sometimes it’s just inches. This is where Tango could be dangerous
against us, on the counter. They move the ball quickly
and they’re lively. -That’s a good pass.
-Great tracking back. Looking for Downer. Now Honesty. Go on Harry, can he deliver? Swings it in … chance! What a goal! He snuck it in; he said it. Well, underestimate Hashtag United
at your peril. He’s taken his boots off. He’s a Man United fan, Lee Hursit. He’s had to wait his chances this year.
Not always in the starting lineup. He comes in today,
great finish from the left foot. That finish there, left foot,
very hard to caress in. So, you’ve got to tell him
well done, and he deserved that. That’ll be a memory he’ll cherish
for a long time. Got a player down,
but Hashtag are going to play on. Hursit on towards Albie Keith. He’s done so well. He’s trying to force his way
past Sidney Bernasko and it turns out to be a foul. Referee! Quinton Fortune coming out
to the technical area. A real blow for Hashtag. Harry Honesty has been really relishing
that battle down the left-hand side. Great switch from Tom Williams
to find Ryan Adams. Gets his first touch out of his feet. It’s a good ball over as well. Diego Bertoni just managed
to usher it away. Bertoni. Basilico. Caught by the outstretched leg
of Ricky Evans. Ricky Evans isn’t here to make friends,
I’m not going to lie to you. He certainly gave a bit
to Riccardo Basilico there. -I got the ball!
-Sensible and steady! You got the man first, then the ball,
sensible and steady, OK? Ricky’s not good at keeping it quiet. Bernasko. Tango Squad looking to attack. Basilico. Certainly a bit spiky
in that midfield area at the moment. We thought for a moment
Denis Irwin was going to hit this, but it’s Riccardo Basilico …
and it’s kept on going. Chisaka out towards Bernasko. It’s a nice darting run. And the turn from Basilico
was read neatly by Gleed. Serrato decided to wind up and hit it. And we’ve seen quite a few shots
from distance now, which have all gone awry. Good from Charlie Morley. Oh he fancied it! He’s gone for it! He’s gone to try lob Declan McCarthy,
who’s no slouch in getting back. Serrato. Good turn! He’s making waves here. He’s got support. He’s gone for the big one … Bilal Azzouz. Great tracking back. And Evans went in strongly
on Bilal Azzouz. Referee! I think Lee Hursit
has moved back into centre-mid. And it’ll be Tash
in the number 10 role now. Denis Irwin having to step in. Nothing wrong with it,
the ball’s gone over there. Certainly some words exchanged. Shut up, that’s great tackle! Yeah, Ricky Evans is not here … Denis is having a little … He wasn’t pleased
with what he saw or heard either. It’s a tough one, because you want
to see players like Denis be respected, and I want our boys to do that. In comes the free kick
which could’ve tested Jamie Jackson, but he was confident it was going wide. Forward, forward, forward! Go, go, go Basi! Chance here for Tango. Riccardo Basilico. Trying to slot it through. Carlos Omabegho. I feel like Tango have been
knocking on the door. Neither keeper has had to make a save. That’s fine! That’s what we were talking about
before the game, a few little tricks, but doesn’t necessarily mean anything
is going to happen at the end of it. And that’s half time. We’ve seen few goal-scoring chances,
but we’ve seen a well-taken finish. Lee Hursit providing the telling touch after some really good work
from Harry Honesty. A good battle
at either end of the field, and plenty of battles
in the middle of the park. At the break,
it’s Tango Squad 0-1 Hashtag United. Half time here at Old Trafford. Hashtag United 1-0 Tango Squad. Lee Hursit, Man United fan’s goal, is the goal separating the two teams. Wes, what do you
make of the first half? It was very good. I thought Hashtag
started off very well. I love a winger
who gets at the defenders, straightforward old-school. Hashtag have done a bit better,
they’re more organised. Great passing, nice and quick passing. But there have been spells where Tango Squad have been slowly
coming back into the game. Can they get a few more opportunities?
Can they … that final ball … get a few shots on target
to put more pressure on Hashtag? Some individual skill, some brilliance
might change the game completely. Hashtag, at the moment, are looking like
the team that’s more comfortable. I’m not going to say loads. I’m not going to rally you,
motivate you, and shout and scream, because certainly for the second 25,
you’ve been the better team. You’re making life hard for yourselves. They’re lively. Individually, they’re really difficult
to play against. Don’t panic. Be comfortable not having
the ball sometimes, OK? As the game goes on, we’ll get after it a bit more
if you’re still 1-0 down. But don’t panic. Just get set and be ready
on that forward pass. If we’re better in possession,
they’ll have to start chasing. I think they might
lose their shape a bit. The crossing
and shooting session yesterday was about being patient
and holding your width. I want to see drive from you.
I don’t want to kill the game. I want to see you open your legs
and drive the ball away from people. Confidence, come on, really.
You have to play football. It’s like we’re not listening. Expecting improvement, come on. Get more shots off. Be direct. Let’s just go out there
and do what we do best. If you’ve got the ball comfortably, just spread out
and it’ll cause them problems. Can Hashtag hold on to the lead
and get the win? We’re going to find out
in about 45 minutes. So off we go in the second half. Hashtag with the lead
after that Lee Hursit goal. -Quinton, you ready to get on?
-Yeah. Tango Squad maybe look to run
into the spaces a little bit too early. And what I mean by that is they look to take a man on
and then another. On comes Quinton Fortune
for Tango Squad. Kelwin, warm up. Lee Hursit fighting back. He’s done well that time, but sometimes they hoard it too much. Great skill! The shot goes flying
into the Stretford End. There was plenty of potential
in that attack from Tango Squad. Great ball, it’s a tough one though,
because he has to take a perfect touch. Intense and tight affair so far. Omabegho. At the moment it looks like
it’s going to stay 0-1 to Hashtag. Referee! Jack Downer! Tango Squad looking to make
another change here. Jack Downer is going to make way
for Kelwin Soares Alves. Space here for Gabe Kellum. It doesn’t matter! -Still a foul!
-How is it a foul? I’m asking! Lunging challenge which gives
Hashtag the free-kick opportunity. Charlie Morley would be wishing
he was on the pitch, because he’d be taking it. Williams it is! The keeper actually got done there. I want to see these keepers tested
in the second half. I want to see some big shots and saves. We’re going to see O’Brien then. We’re going to see Jordan O’Brien.
Tango Squad FC’s first female player. Not afraid to get stuck in. Still waiting for someone to really open
this game up with a moment of magic. We’ve got some clever players
in Tango Squad. Certainly seems to be a bit of momentum
behind Tango Squad now. Good ball, good touch. O’Brien, poked through for Azzouz. Omabegho. -Much better from Tango.
-Yeah, it’s a lot quicker … The tricks are out as well. Jacko was trying to get there and … Kelwin unleashed one. I think since O’Brien and Fortune
have come on, they’ve stepped it up quite a bit.
Starting to control that midfield. A real energy about Tango that they didn’t seem to have
in the first half. I don’t know what was said at half time,
but it’s working. -He’s in. Ooh, he gets a touch.
-Down he goes. -Never a pen.
-The referee’s not giving … I mean, he’s kicked it
into the keeper’s hands and there might have been
a nudge afterwards, but he was never getting there. Quinton Fortune, he’s changed the game
since he’s come on. We don’t look like we can
match them at the moment. Ehsan Abassi is on for Tango Squad. It’s a chance for the regular captain,
Ehsan Abassi, to come on. This is the period of the game
where rolling subs will really help both sides. We’re starting to see
a few getting tired out there now. Big tackle needed. No, he’s done well. It was dug out well in the end. Be brave, come on.
We need a goal, we’re 1-0 down. Haven’t done much
going forward in the second half. It worries me because I feel like Tango
are going to get one. Heading towards the last
quarter of an hour. A game we thought might be full of goals
is still very tight. It’s not over yet. Abassi with the challenge. Chance here, his marker has fallen. Harry Honesty could punish here. His touch was heavy. It was a high challenge on Honesty. You can’t do that any more. Bertoni in trouble. You can’t lunge in like that
with your studs up. It’s a yellow card for the Italian. One of the boys here with the ball. Headed away by O’Brien. Now a chance for Abassi to break. Although Hashtag very quickly
back into position. Slowing it down a bit.
Denis has pushed on into midfield. Good pass. Sidney Bernasko taking on
his opposite number, Marcus Stamp. Boxed in here. He’s done well
to get the throw there, Stamp. I don’t mind that. They’re doing very well at the moment,
Tango Squad. -Chance.
-He’s in. He’s got a shot. Heavy touch. Just took himself very wide there,
Sidney Bernasko. Well done defender. We’re not going to keep
getting away with that. Letting too many players run through. A good pass or a shot from distance
is going to catch us off guard. Chance. Sidney Bernasko threading it through. Serrato on the end of it. Oh my God! Plenty of venom,
but it fizzed right across. At the moment,
they probably deserve a goal. Charlie Morley, is this his moment? He’s bought new boots,
specially for the occasion. Are they going to produce the goods? Certainly made Declan McCarthy
squirm a little. It’s actually sad to say, that’s a highlight for us
in the second half. Move for him. Charlie Morley busting a gut
to try and get in there. Good test of the keeper. Denis Irwin. Tango Squad have got to gamble now a bit and push a few people forward. -And that’s flying goalwards!
-What a goal! It is a stunner! It’s been coming to be fair.
It’s a great strike. A magical moment for Tango Squad
at Old Trafford! Top bin! Boom! Too much time given to midfielders.
They’ve come through, and they’ve looked promising. I said it’s going to happen. It’s going to be a great shot
from the edge of the box or they’re going to find
that missing pass. And what a strike on the left foot. Nothing Jacko could do about that. Looked top corner
from where I was looking. It’s a funny one in the run of things, because any point
in that second half before that, it would’ve been well deserved. It’s the substitute Kelwin that’s scored it. Hashtag come back into the game with their subs, suddenly it looks like we’re going to score. You can’t take it away from them.
It’s been a long time coming, lots of hard work behind the scenes
for Tango Squad. And Kelwin will remember that
for the rest of his life. Tashan Richmond. -Swiftly in.
-He played him in. -I thought he was offside.
-No, no, just on … Sidney Bernasko. -He’s trying it again.
-No, no, no … Can Charlie do a job at right-back?
Never seen him play in defence. Good turn. Sidney Bernasko. Lovely swivel and turn. -Here’s O’Brien.
-Done well. Might not go to penalties
if Tango can do it here. -Are they marking?
-Corner. -He’s got the last corner of the game.
-Short. Played it short? Interesting. Most were expecting the ball
in the middle. It’ll come over now. But that is that. After 90 minutes,
these two sides cannot be separated. A second half that opened up a treat, saw Tango Squad equalise
through a stunning strike. And now, the match and trophy
will be decided from the penalty spot. Whatever happens now, you should be incredibly proud
of yourselves, OK? To be 0-1 down, to go and dominate
in the second half is brilliant. And that’s everything we deserve.
The pressure is off you, OK? You’ve done brilliantly already. Come on, stay together, OK? Come on! It’s penalty time now. Let’s get it. Come on, Dec! So who can handle the nerves? Who has the technique? Who has the reflexes? Hashtag go first and score. Tashan Richmond gets the ball rolling. Tashan does very well there.
Sends the keeper the wrong way. -Perfect start.
-Brilliant penalty. This is it bro. You’ve earned it. Jordan Serrato. Goes for the cheeky chip
and pulls it off. Jacko is fuming about that. He’ll not like that one bit. Very, very cheeky. This guy, too saucy. -Walk in faith, not by sight.
-You know how it is. Their penalty, Dec’s going to save it. Lee Hursit, already scored here tonight. But not this time! Declan McCarthy gets the job done. Very good save from McCarthy,
goes the right way. Did well to keep the ball within his body.
It could have ricocheted off him. I said it! Dec!
Ideal keeper! Ehsan Abassi. Finds the corner. Jackson did his best,
but it managed to slip through. Really good penalty. All the things you can say about Tango,
they’re not playing together as much … Penalties are technical
and they’re good at them. Ross Gleed. Goes for power,
goes for goal and scores. Great strike in the corner. But Jacko’s got to save one
or Tango’s got to miss if Hashtag’s got a chance
of winning this. They’ve put themselves
in a good position. No Entry is stepping up. Can they keep the momentum going
in the shoot-out? Yes! No Entry! No Entry! -What a hit that was.
-Wow. It’s another good penalty. Never doubted! And it all falls to Triple H now. Doesn’t need to score mathematically,
but if he doesn’t, we’ll be in a bad spot. Ideal goalkeeper for a reason. Harry Honesty. He’s become our penalty-taker recently.
I back him. Steps up. But finds the keeper, not the net. It’s another great save. I wasn’t overly impressed with McCarthy,
considering the big talk before the match, but in the shoot-out
he’s paying dividends for Tango. Kelwin, who struck a stunner at one end,
with the chance to win it. Come on, come on, come on. Let’s go, wonder boy. What can he do from the spot? He kept them waiting,
but he slots it home in style. And it’s a victory at Old Trafford
for Tango Squad. Yeah! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Great finish, very calm.
And what can you say? The team drawn together
from around the world is a team of winners. They held their own,
they held their nerve. They are the Tango Cup winners for 2019! A year on from defeat, it’s delight for Tango Squad
at Old Trafford. We’ve done it. What a battle. Every player on that pitch worked hard. I’m proud of everyone.
They deserve all of this. Two years of hard work. We lost at Old Trafford; we came back. -Crazy … we did it!
-We did it! I can’t take any credit really,
they’ve got to be proud of themselves. It’s more a testament to the type
of people and characters they are. I’m thrilled people to get a chance
to see what they’re all capable of. We refused to be beaten tonight. We showed a side of us
we didn’t have before. And two penalty saves at the end,
just surreal. Old Trafford, can’t believe it. A fantastic, wonderful experience.
I was lucky to live it twice. But winning this time was incredible. Really beautiful here
at the Theatre of Dreams, perhaps one of our dreams has come true. We’d have loved to have won, but I’ve got no complaints
with the result. I think Tango are deserving winners
and they should enjoy their night. I can lift the trophy as captain.
That means a lot. I will call my mum after this
and tell her. I think she’s proud of me, yeah. It’s the most amazing feeling
I’ve had in my life. And today to have this opportunity
to play at Old Trafford and score a worldie like that
and win the title with my team. There’s no better feeling.
It’s the best day of my life! No matter what,
if there’s no Tango Squad FC as such the team will remain. We can still meet up;
we can still ball. We can do this
for the rest of our lives. Don’t play games! Welcome to Tango Squad FC. I’m your captain. This is the best experience
you could ever have. Panna time! Mamma mia! What amazing feet
with Adidas Predator! Wow! It was one of the craziest moments
when I first got the Skype call, to say that I actually
got into the team. We don’t play games out here! I’ve seen the progress of the team.
This is the beginning of Tango Squad. This year, if you want to be
in Tango Squad FC, you have to be an MVP. If you get beat, draw a line under it,
move on, focus on positive things. OK! I think a lot has changed
since last year. And I believe we’re far better now. Nice one! Carlos, go away! Cramp, cramp, cramp! Billy, would it be possible
to drop the glasses? Yeah. Swipe up to watch Tango Squad FC. We’regetting off the bus now,
you know how it is … Oh, we got cut! We failed to walk out of a bus. Tango Squad is a completely
different environment. My life’s obviously got better,
football-wise and just generally. I’ve got more confidence
from playing with Tango. It’s been like the coolest experience
of my entire life, that’s for sure. Every day that I stand up, it’s unbelievable that I can say
that I played in such a big stadium. For me, it wasn’t all about
who we’ve met, where we’ve played. I’ve much preferred learning
from people like Ehsan, from Sidney who’s come in,
from Komel, all the other ballers. There are some really
great players, and it’s not all about trying to change
and shift them into a way of playing, but actually try to encourage them
to do what they do already. I’ve made many friends
here at Tango Squad FC. All of these dudes,
they’re now some of my best friends. -What you saying?
-I don’t mind it, I can play it. It’s a shot at redemption
for some of the Tango Squad after the defeat here last season. It’s so beautiful. Just crazy! Jack Downer is going to make way
for Kelwin Soares Alves. It’s not called
the Theatre of Dreams for nothing! That’s flying goalwards! It’s a stunner! Chance to win it. He kept them waiting,
but he slots it home in style. We did it. That’s what we worked for
the last two years. We refused to be beaten tonight. Every player on that pitch worked hard. I’m very happy,
I’m very proud of the guys. Never stop, never give up
and you can never know what can happen. WATCH NEXT

  5. So scripted its not funny.

  6. Bit of an over reaction to Tango’s first goal

  7. So many Tango Squad haters in the comments lol its always the better players getting hate… Hashtag are a bunch of Tory supporting twats who have no skill or technique. Tango Squad FTW

  8. It ain't the fricking champions league Final or world cup final jeez calm down

  9. Ricky Evans no respect for Dennis or respect to play at old Trafford he is a ginger joe Barton

  10. This match just sums up a match I played 2 years ago (but more shots). We were the underdogs going into a cup round, they scored in the first half, then we scored in the second half. No goals scored in extra time so it went to penalties. I saved the second shot and then got the winning save and ended 4-2.

  11. That was 38 minutes of my life I will never get back

  12. Tango had some very cocky people, but Ricky Evans was the biggest embarrassment on that pitch. He's presumably in his 30's, yet was acting like a child having a tantrum. You could see Spencer was cringing.

  13. Tango squad all have cancer wtf is wrong with them all

  14. Majority (not all) but majority of the players on Tango Squad are a bunch of arrogant, cocky douche bags, definitely not deserving of this experience.

  15. Why is everyone having a go at them wtf, their personalities are great and the fact that your here hating on them says a lot about YOUR personality

  16. How’ve you stuck a girl on your team and expect hashtag to go in her like she’s a bloke…that ain’t fair

  17. The guy who scored the screamer looks like aubamiang

  18. guy who scored for tango was so much better than everyone else

  19. them taking it seriously was so cringe

  20. tango gear and kit is fucking manky aswell

  21. Tango squad dead

  22. I found it really difficult to listen to Tango because of how arrogant and annoyingly they acted

  23. I'll admit they had some good skills but they really werent impressive besides that. They just came across as fairly douchey to me.

  24. Why you praying for a penalty to go in in a made up friendly match ffs

  25. won their own competition not hard

  26. God that fucking keeper is a cunt

  27. boooooo Tango Squad definitely do not deserve it they are very arrogant.

  28. Hashtag not tackling the woman, she should not be on a MENS game of football, should be on a woman's team ffs

  29. 18:23 great tackle how is that a foul

  30. It’s not the champions league final, they’re overreacting so much

  31. Why aren't there fans?

  32. So many haters in these comments it’s unreal…

  33. Yikes. Im addicted to playing football

  34. Soares alves looks like Mahrez

  35. All the Hashtag fans are so salty😂

  36. And the winner of the World Cup is tango squad

  37. was wes brown pissed???

  38. Tango really piss me off. They think they bloody won the treble of the century in a friendly game

  39. That hashtag midfielder shouldn’t have been on the pitch, 3 fouls at half time….

  40. Dear hashtag, can you never play or associate yourself with that bunch of cunts ever again please.

  41. They got the stadium announcer when nobody is there 😂

  42. Why is there a woman playing

  43. I just clapped at the end of the video.

  44. The suspense was real! Kelwin must have had an epic day well done mate!

  45. love how they have a guy on the speakers for the subs when there is no audience

  46. Carlos is the one of the only ones I see with true talent and potential, the midfielder who played captain, abassi, and the the rw looked decent too

  47. Cant believe Hashtag played against this joke of a club.

  48. Bro y’all a bunch of haters. Let the kids have their fun. Stop acting like you wouldn’t be celebrating any type of win at Old Trafford

  49. Jacko lost his head at the first pen, wasn’t surprised he didn’t save any after that

  50. Why’s that number 2 chatting like that on the pens fucking muppet

  51. a 40 minute Adidas advert

  52. guy on the camera for tango is a proper bellend. If you closed your eyes, listened to him and had to guess what he looks like you'd say 6ft5 and black with dreadlocks.

  53. Guy on the camera for Pens, what a bellend.

  54. i didnt know theres a new tango squad, hated every part of it.

  55. This makes me so happy!! Oh gosh, I love football!

  56. maldade, não tem legenda em Português (Brasil)

  57. nice to see lee off the bench

  58. Wow they got no respect tango squad such a bunch of twats

  59. Tango got the score but hashtag were the real winners. What a load of twats

  60. JAJAJAJ sinceramente no juegan nada

  61. I’d like to see this group of tossers take on Se Dons

  62. Shit as fuck Haha

  63. Please, stop showing stories during the penalties. It annoys and breaks the atmosphere.

  64. Why are Tango said cocky???

  65. Yo that beat about to make me start supporting Man U!

    What’s the name of the instrumental/song (2nd beat)?!?!
    I need that in my life.

  66. Mate it ain’t the World Cup you don’t have to celebrate like that. You won on penalties in a YouTube game calm it down gee.

  67. Why is there a woman

  68. Anyone know the name of the songs in the background at 0:43 and 12:20?

  69. The guy recording him self is a faggot

  70. Best part of the game was Ricky Evans telling Dennis Irwin to fuck ofd

  71. I guess you have to celebrate like you won the champions league when you only play one game a year…

  72. Is sepncer retired? Haven't watched it a while

  73. Why did adidas even create the tango squad

    Such a waste of money

  74. Bunch of fuckin cunts

    Big yikes from me

  75. 24:10 I’m sorry but I could not stop laughing at the way he fell and slid

  76. Jacko is sooo shitttt

  77. Why is everyone saying tango have massive egos please drop a reply and tell me who

  78. The female player was good, nice weight on her passes.

  79. What’s so special about this “Tango” squad? I don’t know why adidas is promoting them and stuff..

  80. Витя Блатов чемпион

  81. Blatov is out? Haha

  82. The Nike Academy can easily kill these 🤡

  83. That downer plebs accent is soooo forced it's unbearable…

    Also having a female play against men is just reckless, if the hashtag lad (rich i think it was) had gone in like he did against the lads she's not getting up. It's dirty tactics also because they know any man who's not a complete degenerate will not treat her like male opponents which gives her more time on the ball.

    I won't be watching anymore Tango stuff (this was my first viewing) because they're all self absorbed dicks.

  84. Кто пришёл от Вити Блатова???

  85. Где Блат?

  86. Waiting on the season 3

  87. i would punch tf out of jack

  88. If Josh osuade played hashtag would of won

  89. Match: 13:07
    Kick of: 14:00

  90. Adidas!!! I have much respect with your company! But whats going on?you made football ridiculous in making this show. Very disapointed men. Haiist. If you want to make this show last create a team that gives results and knows the game from the ground up. Players that knows how to play 11 a side. I love football I love adidas so don't ruin it please. 😔😔

  91. Poor defending on the first goal. Didn't pick his man😔

  92. Como o Kelwin é banco nesse time ?

  93. I bet hashtag can actually beat tango is just that they got unLucky

  94. If tango didn’t have those extra players then hashtag will win
