Running To Mother
lauded his team's uncommon tenacity. "This was a difficult fixture on paper, with Amel well poised to frustrate us. We didn't panic, which was great, and Tarin demonstrated the value of a top set-piece man."
Over in Kenya, the Farmer Bunnies destroyed Division Two runners-up Ma-Ma, whose reserve team couldn't quite handle the Buns' swarming defence. Striker Dan Bajdechi was clearly quality, but couldn't do it all himself, and the rainy conditions surely benefited the Buns much more in the 8-0 rout.
The final twenty minutes saw Daniel Nguyen
, Vishnu Tallapaka
and Sofian Azfar
rushing to complete their hat-tricks, a feat that none of them ultimately managed. The hosts for their part saw Jaime Fernández Astiz limp off at the end of the first half after a turned knee, but all indications are that it thankfully isn't serious.
Grilled International prevailed over Slovakian Division Five hosts Senátor Bratislava C.F. 3-1 with Safari bin Hj Jali
heading home just five minutes in, with Ragib Banović
adding a second after a failed counter in the 32nd. Michal Klusáček powered through to reduce, however, but Sahari Jainal
rounded out the scoring from an extended corner kick sequence, all before half-time.
