Abu Dhabi Thistle yesterday clinched the Abu Dhabi Youth League title following a thrilling 3-2 victory over EFF Abu Dhabi.
EFF drew first blood in the sixth minute through Lizarazu, before Thistle drew themselves level from the penalty spot. A moment of brilliance from Josh Hendricks made it 2-1, only for Les Bleus to hit back – Frank Lebouef pouncing on a loose ball following a faux pas from Thistle's last line of defence.
With the final whistle approaching and the match deadlocked, Christian Perry stepped up to the plate to settle matters with a low drive that flashed passed Barthez and into the side netting, leaving Thistle with no regrets, whilst the Frenchmen rued their missed opportunities.
