Sofian To Sit
It will be a stress-free weekend for once for Grilled Birds, thanks to a walkover over Puh erh scheduled next. "That will give Massoud Dob
more time to recover. He's a little behind schedule, but not too much." Eren Serpin
revealed. "The rest of the team will keep busy, of course, the final three league games will be foremost in our thoughts."
Serpin would also praise Yuta Nakakita
for his output today. "I felt bad withdrawing him at half-time, believe me, but it was the right thing to do. We need our best options healthy, and Yuta remains essential for us as insurance in defence."
This was a lesson that Farmer Bunnies might have heeded, as they lost Sofian Azfar
for perhaps a month, in their own 5-0 win in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, against 11 señoritas. The III.10 leaders were willing but raw, and held out until Jon Benson
's corner conversion in the 51st minute. The hosts' convictions took a huge hit at that, and goalkeeper-cum-head coach Göksel Çalıkbey was left badly exposed, with Aitykul Zaripbekov
arrowing in his first-ever strike for the Buns in the 72nd.
Grilled International went 5-1 against two-time Comoros Ruby Challenger Cup winners Real Sócc'mel, who did take the initial lead through earnest running by Dutch teenager Ealf Boek. Not to be outdone, Chua Jun Long
answered twice by the sixteenth minute, and Abdou M'Changama's departure due to a concussion would presage a rout by International, led by Safari bin Hj Jali
