Global FC coach Leigh Manson is confident his side will be able to overturn the tie in the second-leg of the RHB Singapore Cup semi-finals.
The Filipinos currently trail Albirex Niigata (S) by a goal on aggregate after losing the first leg 1-0 on Friday evening at the Clementi Stadium.
Rion Taki scored the only goal of the game in the second half, and despite their valiant efforts, Global could not force an equaliser.
They will have all to do in the second-leg as a result, but Manson is optimistic that they can turn it around, like they did in the previous round.
“It’s obviously a disappointment,” Manson said. “Nobody likes to lose the first-leg, but we showed in the previous rounds we can come from behind so I’m confident we can certainly make the second-leg interesting.
“I’m confident we can come back. It’s a shame the game was done with a mistake - it was our mistake that led to the goal.
“I thought we had a great chance; Mark (Hartmann) was only a studs length away from making it 1-1. The game was close - a draw would have been a fairer result for our play.”
However, Global will have to do it without sufficient players as they have released several players after their domestic league ended six weeks ago.
As a result, Manson named just three substitutes on the bench.
“That’s just a difficult we have to face because our season is over and some of the players have been released,” Manson explained.
“I’m left with a squad that’s thin, but that’s no excuse. We are hoping maybe the will let us add one or two players for the next leg, but if not we will make do with whatever there is.
“That’s just how it is with our season different from the S.League season.
“I don’t like making excuses; we’ve got good players and a good team. In the second leg we will be stronger.”
On the other hand, Albirex coach Tatsuyuki Okuyama felt his team were not at their best because of a lack of preparation, which he attributed to the haze.
“I think we didn’t get many chances today, but because of this weather, we didn’t have enough time to train so it’s a disappointment for us, but we did a good job today,” Okuyama said.
However, Okuyama shared that he is confident his side can advance into the final, and believes his team is fully capable of winning the competition.
“Of course we are playing a competition which we think we can win, and we will do our best to win our trophy,” Okuyama added.

Azkals take tough road ahead

by Olmin Leyba

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine Azkals brace for a grueling journey as they head to North Korea then Bahrain for their next assignments in the Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

The Azkals, who sit third in Group H with six points on two wins and a loss, will face unbeaten leader North Korea (nine points) on Thursday at Kim Il-Sung Stadium in Pyongyang. After this, they will meet Bahrain (three points) over at the Bahrain National Stadium in Riffa on Oct. 13.

“Hopefully the players will not be too tired. It’s a very taxing trip for our players, especially those who are coming from Europe,” Philippine Football Federation general-secretary Edwin Gastanes said yesterday on the sidelines of “The Business of Sports” Conference coinciding with the Asia Sports Industry Awards.

Since there’s no direct flight from Manila to Pyongyang, the Phl-based Azkals will first fly to Beijing, China on Sunday then take a flight to the North Korean capital. Players based in Europe will go to Frankfurt first before catching a plane to Beijing then boarding another flight to Pyongyang.

With the next game against Bahrain set just five days later, the Azkals will have to immediately fly to Manama after the North Korea fixture. This will take them back to Beijing, then Abu Dhabi before reaching Bahrain.

“It’s very taxing but I know our players are motivated to win games and give honor to us,” said Gastanes.
