The EAFL Falcons took part in a friendly match against Belgrade University All Stars of the Serbian Association of American Football.
Their purpose is to bring more attention and exposure of the sport to Europe.
The welcome mat, red carpet hospitality they received at the airport turned into an onslaught on the field as the Serbian team blew away the Falcons in sandstorm fashion 35-8.
“They have an excellent sports culture out here and are well-suited to play football. They are big, strong, fast, and disciplined,” said EAFL program pirector Dustin Cherniawski.
The Falcons were short-handed with their roster as they were only able to field 14 players, with the only bright spot coming as Dubai’s Zavier Cobb hauled in a 70-yard pass from Abu Dhabi quarterback Jerome Lattimore for the Falcons’ only touchdown.
“I feel that we would give any team a hard time, if we have the players we’ve had in previous games,” Cobb added. “But, due to unforeseen circumstances many of our key players couldn’t make it.
“The game result is not what we wanted for our men. However, the game was an important meeting between the Serbia teams and the EAFL Falcons. Which we hope to build on this game, and create the first of many games together.”
