declared the visit a job well done. "Yeah, it wasn't the most daunting test, but this is how they've been lining up. Their kids were full of fire, if a tad unpolished. They'll improve."
As for Farmer Bunnies and Grilled International, they geared up for their pending promotion matches with resounding victories. Bunnies entertained Bosnia and Herzegovina Premijer Liga side NK Vašarovići at Carrot Field, and kept them at bay throughout, recording a 4-0 scoreline with Hari Rapaka
opening in the fifth minute. True, NK Vašarovići might have brought essentially an U-20 side, but Dalibor Kostadinović
"It's wasn't as easy as it looked. NK Vašarovići went full defensive, they had the basics, they were fit." the Buns head coach expounded. "You can ask Daniel Nguyen
how little room they allowed him, and that's not to put him down. Miran Raulj
was strong in midfield too, and that sprained ankle he got from contributing to Wong Ting Yew
's fourth shouldn't be too much of a problem, thankfully."
Grilled International began their rampage against Azerbaijan III.5 club Su İnşaat İzolyasiya with a Chen Feng Kok
header, as the 29 year-old continues to cement his place in the rotation after a long lull. Tibor Atzenhain
and Ratano bin Omar
had it at 3-0 by the 35th minute, but a brave effort from trainee forward Naib Qəmbərov saw İzolyasiya battle back to a 3-6 result.
This was more than enough for gaffer Roar Olaisen
, who had reserved most of his expected starters for this one. "Wang Hanxuan
and Hardi bin Besar
were sharp in attack, even if they didn't score, and Osertz Indurain
was entirely acceptable as skipper. Directed often, good leadership. No injuries either. You can't ask for much more."
