Star forward Mohd Safri bin Mohd Kassim
revealed that he could not be upset at the result, after having failed to influence the game from right wing. "NS Leksikosi based their whole strategy on being first to every contested ball, and they actually managed to keep it up. It's perhaps the most basic of approaches, but it's easier said than done, and they executed it very well."
"At the end of the day, it's but a friendly, and getting through it without injuries was my major concern." Mohd Safri continued. "Still, our reserve guys could have put more effort into this. They don't exactly have the recovery issues that the rest of us have."
"Take their Belić lad, or that Number Sixteen... Grubić, I think. They never stopped running, from what I could see. There's something to be learnt from that."
