2 - 3 Grilled Birds
Despite the win, Grilled coach-in-charge Luis Alcántara wasn't too impressed. "They sure had a good time out there today, but I don't know how much of that I'd call proper football."
Several of the players would express their disappointment at not being able to stay longer. "This is one my my favourite spots to lie back and relax." Gene Filippone
said. "Haven't been here for a long while, though - perhaps in the off-season."
Farmer Bunnies kept on with a 6-0 wipeout of Ecuadorean third division leaders FC Santo Tomas, as an active Jon Benson
again drove them from midfield, moreover opening with a penalty in the 23rd minute.
and Liderhan Kadyr
then struck in turn after Edward Ong
made the most of a rare appearance with a well-weighted volley, but it would be Hari Rapaka
's day, as he found two goals despite only being on for the last ten minutes.
Benson, who captained the team out for the game, had good things to say about the 23 year-old sub's energy levels. "Incredible workrate there, it's what we all want from a fresh guy, but a cool head on top of that!"
It was however another bad outing for Grilled International, who first lost 0-3 to Chilean Division Four master_puppets in a friendly, despite hefty contributions by Tommy Dongelmans
from the right side. This was followed by a 0-1 loss to Benin's Hôtel des Voyageurs in the Topazio's tournament, with Juggie Savimbi finding a late winner from a corner.
Tajit bin Mohd
refused comment, while forward Micky bin Kadir
bemoaned a lack of attacking will, as International contend with the poor scoring record of just a single goal in their last five matches. "We're simply not opening teams up."
