The Diablo You Know
Reserve coach Luis Alcántara took the loss in his stride. "That Dëfrim Koka guy was too good for us. He has a pretty special style, if you haven't noticed - when dribbling, he naturally leans this way and that, making it hard to get close with his upper body strength, yet he is also surprisingly light on his feet. These traits aren't often seen together."
Alcántara also had some consoling words for reserve goalie Dan Seng
, beaten eight times on the day. "This reminded us that we haven't had any good left-footed free-kick takers to train against. Our goalies have probably gotten too used to Madaini's strikes, we'll have to see what we can do about this."
Chow Ying Lee
was just relieved to make it through without incurring another injury. "Yes, I mistimed that one, but make no mistake, these are tough fellows! I have bruises in three different areas, and they weren't even trying, I think."
