Efendiev Brings Oblivion

Grilled Birds head coach Tian Yonghang reserved his initial plaudits for Gilm FC, whom he felt had done well in keeping the Birds to a one-goal margin. "Realistically, we had the stronger side out there, and it is testament to Gilm's resolve that we had such a hard time of it. It's a shame about Alaharju's foot injury, but I have been informed that it's not too serious."

There would be wins for Farmer Bunnies and Grilled International in their later friendlies too, with the Buns gaining a 3-1 over Cameroon II.3 visitors Olympia Yaoundé, courtesy of a hat-trick from Vitaliy Efendiev. Olympia would send wave after wave of attacks at the Buns' back five without reward, with their stubbornness earning them only reprisals from Efendiev - until Rrapush Buxheli converted a penalty in the 75th minute following Guan Ming Kum's obvious if accidental handball in the box.

If this was a great day for Efendiev, and a bit of a downer for Guan, it had to be the most significant for Lim Guang Qiang, who made his senior debut in central defence. Amazingly, he didn't look entirely out of place marking former Cameroon youth international striker Gabriel Tarawaly either. "Lim doesn't have that kind of fear, because he's simply a nasty bastard when it comes to football." former academy buddy Amirul Jufri Khairil half-joked. "Nobody likes to be up against him in training!"

Grilled International went one better in their 4-1 triumph, also against Finnish challengers, in IV.50 club FC 0blivion. Tuomas Hovatov would open in the 32nd after speedy approach work from Okko Jalava, which threw International's organization into disarray. Hardi bin Besar would reply two minutes later off a lofted free-kick though, and by half-time, Safari bin Hj Jali and Wang Hanxuan would have International two up already. Sazwan bin Hj Muhd Salleh went it himself on a thirty-metre free-kick on the restart, and that was that.
