We won !

 

2-1

 

We scored more than 1 goal for a change.

 

Any word on the scorers and starters? I went to the Al-Jazira FC website and there's nothing more than a couple of pics of them with the trophy.

 

Beating them in their home conditions would have been a pretty tough assignment, and maybe a good pointer for the ACL - they were a Round of 16 team.

@wswanderersfc: Great win tonight in Abu Dhabi in the IPIC Cup beating @AlJazira_uae 2-1 w/ goals to La Rocca & Appiah. Great atmosphere and good spirit.

 

Also from Twitter (somebody mispelled the team sheet)

 

@AlJazira_uae: @wswanderersfc startup line for @AlJazira_uae match: Cosic. Golec. Stanley. Hamill. Mullen. Poljak. Larocca. Saba. Bridge. Appiah. Haliti.

the starting line-up was a great hint to a possible starting XI for ACL duties.

Appiah scored?? Wtf.... Omg...

 

Yep, I have / had a feeling all this time that all he needs is a sniff of scoring to open his account and he is away.

 

Hopefully i'm right and he is a different player now.

Kubi showed great composure so pleased to see the headless chicken actually find and use his head!

 

Hopefully they are are injury free.

2-1 win! And a nice goal from Kubi! Hope that gives him some confidence.

 

So are they heading home now?

**** one of those stands behind the goal is probably equal to the capacity of Parra Stadium!

Those highlights are terrible. They show the goal once, and then spend 10 minutes showing the players shaking hands with one another as they "celebrate" the goal in a nothing tournament.

Kubi will be a gun this season if he is given game time.

 

Kubi will get game time if he continues to progress and improve on the areas of his game that do need improvement and show more in the way of consistency.

 

A goal in a pre season tournament certainly won't do him any harm..... lets hope he kicks on from here.

Sounds like we were creative. Wonder if Castelen had any time?

Thanks Flytox - starting line-up looks like it was done with an eye to the ACL. Still good to see Castelen get on :)
