FootySimulator - FSFA Cup 2018 - Third Round
In a round short of shocks there were nonetheless a couple of surprise replays. Bahrain achieved a creditable draw in Ghana while Canada briefly led against Germany before being pegged back. The random unseeded draw produced a huge matchup between Spain and Portugal which also went to a replay. Goalscoring plaudits went to Neymar who hit five in Brazil's 8-1 drubbing of Trinidad & Tobago. Uruguay and Netherlands both hit 6 while Bosnia & Herzegovina narrowly won an eight goal thriller against Senegal.

Once again Canada opened the scoring against Germany. This time, in Cologne, things were to turn out differently as the hosts ran riot hitting 7 goals in reply. Jordan Ayew's 2 goals for Ghana finally saw off a gallant Bahrain side. Spain won the Clash of the Titans against Portugal in Lisbon and two goals from Ecuador's Enner Valencia helped see off Australia. Adam Szalai scored 2 more for Hungary and Bjarnasson scored a pair for Iceland. Azerbaijan and Egypt could not be separated, a second replay in Istanbul would be required.
