A local friendly

It's not often that FC Basel and SC Freiburg get to face each other, but that's what they did yesterday evening in Rheinfelden (D). Not one to miss a footballing trip involving cheap tickets, beer and bratwurst, Karl-Heinz my German colleague and I attended the match. This was a friendly scheduled just before internationals weekend, hence a lot of the FCB first-teamers and a couple of Freiburg players were away on international duty. However, it ended up being quite an entertaining little spectacle, which included an impressive solo goal from Freiburg's Daniel Caliguiri. The final score was 3-2 to Freiburg.

The game also marked the grand finale of celebrations this year to mark the 100th anniversary of Swiss club 1. FC Rheinfelden 09. However, the match itself took place at the home of their German counterparts, SC Rheinfelden 03, who, I assume, were founded in 1903. Slightly odd, really, but there you go.
