Hamid Hams It Up
This visit to Madagascar has completed Grilled's record of playing in all Hattrick territories once again, with Eren Serpin
intending to continue club tradition, by inviting clubs from the six yet-unhosted countries next. "Our players can never complain of having an underutilized passport, if nothing else!"
Serpin was also relieved to hear that 18 year-old Luis Naves had undergone a brain scan and come out alright, although he will nonetheless remain under observation for a few days, and not be cleared to play for a week or so. "Head injuries should be taken extra-seriously. I'm glad to hear there was nothing lasting there."
Earlier, Farmer Bunnies had hosted Portuguese third division side at SempreJony FC, and emerged 5-0 winners, with youngsters Sunil Patel
, Djoko Tambusai
and Wadihan Hanafi Yusuf
scoring in turn. SempreJony FC were doing pretty well before Polish midfielder Łukasz Hajdasz was sent off right before half-time for a shocking lunge on Billy Camperio
, and it would be a whole different ball game after that, as the Buns found their five goals.
There would also be a big win for Grilled International in their friendly against Saint Vincent and the Grenadines III.10 champions 11 señoritas, which saw Abdul Hamid bin Hj Ali Timbang
send two free-kicks beyond Hyron Evanson, to have a hat-trick in an 8-1 rout. Turkish player-coach Göksel Çalıkbey did pull one back towards the end, as he saw off Arcadi Sansalvador
to find a way past Vadym Gorozhankin
