Ergotelis FC tie tells us more than you think, complete rosters and where’s Michael?

Stefani Miglioranzi continued what’s fast becoming a Union trademark, finishing games – whether they’re regular season or preseason – with only 10 men on the field. Miglioranzi was ejected, the second ejection of the preseason, in the 88th minute of the friendly vs. Ergotelis FC played earlier today at the Pancretan Stadium. The Union were holding onto a 1-0 lead until the ejection of Miglioranzi led to a converted equalizer from the penalty spot.

In better news, however, new signing Carlos Ruiz found his first Union goal tapping a Justin Mapp service into the net only 27 minutes after stepping onto the field a member of the Union for his debut. Faryd Mondragon showed well in net, shutting out Ergotelis, before stepping aside for a younger line-up in the second half.

Surprisingly, we have rosters! They don’t look to be “in formation” but you can certainly see that Orozco Fiscal did not play a part in this lineup. The picture and rosters are courtesy of Ergotelis FC’s website:

First Half: Mondragon, Califf, Carroll, Harvey, Mapp, Miglioranzi, Mwanga, Nakazawa, Ruiz, Torres, Valdes.

Second Half: MacMath, Agorsor, M. Farfan, Mclnerney, Okugo, Pfeffer, Richter, G. Farfan (TRIALIST), Keon Daniel (TRIALIST), Houapeu

The picture above is clearly of the second half line-up and the Union players are as follows from the top left to the bottom right: Z. Pfeffer, Okugo, Macmath, TRIALIST (Keon Daniel), Miglioranzi, Valdes, Houapeu, McInerney, M. Farfan, Agorsor, TRIALIST (G. Farfan), Richter

What to pull from all this? That’s a formidable “starting XI” the Uion have fielded above. We also have confirmation that both Gabriel Farfan and Keon Daniel are still in camp with the squad and there’s a distinct possibility they could be sticking around. It’s also clear Michael Orozco Fiscal did not play a part in this friendly. Does that mean he is gone? No drawing concrete conclusion but it’s definitely a strong possibility.

The Union – having flip-flopped dates – will now play third division Hersonissos FC at the same location this Wednesday, March 2.

    No Le Toux either. So no questions answered about Michael at this point.

    Where’s le toux?

  3. Zman Says:

    No Williams, Le Toux, Gonzalez, Noone, Zimmerman or of course, Orozco Fiscal.

  4. bbonnette Says:

    With the Torres/Seitz tweets, it’s a little more likely we’re looking at an Orozco-Fiscal departure. Le Toux is most likely out with a knock but you’re right, you can’t draw concrete conclusions.

    There is much more however,pointing towards O-F’s exit….

    So the Union could not beat Ergotelis, a bottom of the table Greek League team, fielding their second string. Interesting…
