Yesterday we played a friendly match against Malaysian team Kuantan Rangers. Finally I could work with a mix of the SEA Games players and the ones who stayed with me in Lombok. Ofcourse the boys were very eager because they don’t get that many games.
The Kuantan Rangers already played two games against Vamos Academy and a mix of Vamos/Mataram, last years Indonesian champions. It became a hard game: I instructed the players to press from the beginning till the end. Set pieces carried out in consultation with me.
The Malaysian team had problems to get away from the pressure and therefore our goalkeepers had a quiet afternoon. After 7-0 score they finally could pinch a goal, 7-1 end score. After all a very useful practice game which I would like to have more.
