Indonesia youngster Firza Andika scored twice as AFC Tubize U-18s defeated Marcet Academy of Barcelona in a friendly match the other day.
The 19-year-old wing-back had signed for the Belgian second division club in January earlier this year after coming through the ranks at the Semen Padang youth academy in Indonesia.
He also played for PSMS Medan while also representing Indonesia at the U-19 and U-23 levels. Firza was also part of the Garuda Muda squad coached by Indra Sjafri that participated in the 2020 AFC U-23 Championship Qualifiers last month.

Having signed a two-year contract with the European club, Firza has been steadily making progress at Tubize and now plays with the youth squads of the club looking to win his chance to represent the first team.
And the performance against the Spanish academy in the friendly fixture where he bagged a brace in 60 minutes of action will do his chances no harm.
