Global seek top spot in Group F

Top of the table Global FC take on Boeungket Angkor in the AFC Cup on Wednesday night needing a win to secure first place in Group F.

The Philippine side host the Cambodians at the Rizal Memorial Stadium knowing that three points will see them finish above 2015 champions JDT and go into the inter zonal semi-finals.

Global are coming off an impressive 4-2 away win over bottom club Magwe in the last round while Boeungket went down 3-0 at home to the Malaysians.

Still, the Philippine side are not expecting things to be easy.

“We are expecting a difficult game tomorrow. We have the same sense of urgency as our last games. It is a must win game for us,” said Global keeper Patrick Deyto.
“We played against them already before and they are a really good team. We need to play at our 100 percent tomorrow to get that three points,” he added.

Matthew Hartman is suspended for the hosts, although star forward Misagh Bahadoran is expected to feature for Global after overcoming a knee injury.

With no chance of qualification, Boeungket have only pride to play for, and coach John McGlynn is looking for a confidence boosting performance from his team as they bow out of the competition.

“We are aware of their strengths and what they’re capable of. They’re a well-rounded team and they’ll be difficult to play against, said McGlynn.

“We have our game and we’ll try to stop them of course, as much as we can. We’re ready for a tough game and we’ll see the best team win.”
