Saturday, January 26, 2013
MATURITY paid off once again for the Little Azkals as they stamped another win yesterday in the two-day friendly matches between Korea-based players from Chelsea FC, 7-2, at the Bonifacio Global Field.
First game hero JB Borlongan scored two goals, while Vincent Erik Lovitos shared the limelight with two goals. Javier Romero-Salas, Ray Sancianco and Jose Anton Yared chipped in a goal each.
Head coach Oliver Colina saw the improvement of the team compared to its first meeting as these players became more aggressive in a smaller, artificial court.
Colina said it was't hard for the boys to adjust as they already got used to playing in this kind of field, especially in their matches during the Italy camp and in their tournament in Japan.
Overall, more than the victory, Colina treats it as a good experience for the team.
"We can gauge our performance now na naka-kontra ta ug Korean team who are also known to be Asia’s strong teams," said Colina.
The Little Azkals are looking forward to the Thirsty Cup Football Festival next month, where they are currently the defending champion in the Under-14 division.
