Having seen off Pasargad with a 2-0 win in their campaign opener last Tuesday, Global looked on track for another routine win at the Emperador Stadium when Izzeldin Elhabbib fired them in front after just four minutes.
However, Nomads' Nigerian important Fidelis Nnabuife equalised in the 44th minute but it was not to be for them as an own-goal from Bafio Magassa five minutes into the second half ultimately handed their opponents the three points.
The result was saw Global join Loyola Meralco Sparks with six points from their opening two games, but it is Stallion Sta. Lucia who are currently top of the pile following their 4-0 defeat of Pasargad.
Following a goalless first half, Pasargad found themselves reduced to ten men in the 47th minute when Gerald Orcullo picked up his second yellow for a foul inside the area, and their opponents duly took the lead through Kim Hyo-il from the resultant penalty.
Rufinho Sanchez then made it 2-0 in the 75th minute before PSG had another man sent off when Reza Amirkhizan received his marching orders too, and buoyed by their numerical superiority, Stallion went on to seal an emphatic victory with a late strike from Daniel Matsunaga and another penalty from Kim in injury-time.
