Check out the AFI Recap of the action from throughout Europe this past weekend

It was another wild weekend of football throughout Europe.

The Danish Nationalligaen was back in action after a five-week break as was Finland’s Maple League which had been idle for two weeks. The German Football League had a full slate of games while six of the eight teams in the European League of Football saw action.

The Prague Lions (4-1) gained their revenge over the Vysocina Gladiators (3-1) in beating them 28-21 this past weekend. The win atones for a loss to the Gladiators two weeks ago and moves Prague past Vysocina into first place as the end of the regular season looms.
