Despite his scintillating performance, Moey Xin Seng
indicated that he wanted to move on to Sunday's match as soon as possible. "That felt good, but it's a sideshow regardless." the club captain asserted without mincing his words. "The true prizes are not to be found here."
It would be the same setback for Farmer Bunnies as they recorded against N11CĀ in the same tournament ten seasons back, as the Icelanders have done well in raising themselves to Division Two in the meantime. Neo Storm, who scored then, had developed into an absolute terror of a forward with 64 national caps, and his 34th minute flier from the right wing was a beauty to behold.
The Buns were not ones to roll over, and they would get even through Nurlan Ablaev
with nine minutes remaining. Vivian Grubenmann
then saved well off Arnel de Guia, but a failure to turn it fully around meant that Farmer Bunnies remained second in Group A behind N11CĀ on goal difference.
