Can't Wait

Head coach Hovaness Noubaryan commended Playboys Swe on a match well fought, considering that they had been formed as something of a youth feeder club. "Few sides can boast of three Swedish U-20 stars, and they showed their class today. Give them another few years, and they will be up there with the world's best."

Noubaryan didn't fancy Grilled's chances against Swe's Allsvenskan seniors Playboys Us - who expectedly flattened Stratten 9-0 - in the next round, but stated that it would be an invaluable experience for the squad. "How often do you get to play teams of that calibre? As a bonus, nothing much is riding on the match, so I hope the players feel free to express themselves."

Hours before this, Grilled International had managed a 4-1 win over Gute Freunde, which confirmed the German club's relegation from V.231, and assured themselves of at least fifth place. Didi Reidenbach narrowly missed out on a hat-trick, with Ragib Banović and Sazwan bin Hj Muhd Salleh scoring the others. Gunnar Hügl replied for Gute Freunde.

International goalie Querubim Santos Couto had to quit the game after a calf strain with four minutes remaining, but head coach Roar Olaisen reassured supporters that he was mostly well and fine. "Nothing serious, the doctors tell me. We will be needing him against Black Trapper, that's for sure."

As for the Singapore national side, they are all but out of the World Cup, following a 1-5 away defeat to Bosnia and Herzegovina. Kwek Yun Jie gave the Lions the lead in front of nearly 180000 screaming fans, but the Bosnians' response was more than Singapore could bear.

Given that the Lions' five-man backline comprised four Farmer Bunnies men, with the exception of Drekmore F.C.'s Mason Chan, this might easily have been seen as an indictment of the Buns. Morgan Hu refused to recognize it as such, though. "We were simply overrun in midfield. The best defence can't do much, when that happens."
