Global loses to Vietnam



Game Tomorrow (Panaad Stadium, Bacolod City)
7:30 p.m. – Ceres vs Boeungket

Global-Cebu conceded the only goal with 15 minutes before stoppage time and fell 1-0 to Vietnamese side FLC Thanh Hoa in Saturday’s opener of the AFC Cup at the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi.

The Philippines Football League runner-up witnessed Faye score the winner with a header off a cross from the left flank to absorb a defeat in a game held amid foggy conditions in the Vietnamese capital.

Patrick Deyto made several key saves behind the sticks for Global, including a pair of early attempts by Faye, but was unable to complete a third late in the match.

Global fell in its first match under new ownership and parading a new lineup after a busy transfer window.

Curt Dizon and Daniel Gadia, signed after the stunning disbandment of top-flight side Meralco-Manila, started in their Global debuts along with reliable foreign standouts Rufo Sanchez, Wesley dos Santos and Darryl Roberts.

The Cebu-based club opened the Philippine campaign in Asia’s second-tier club competition.

PFL champion Ceres-Negros, which nearly reached the crack AFC Champions League, will make its debut tomorrow night against Cambodia’s Boeungket Angkor at Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City.
