Mike Wong: I’m sure we will progress
By Eagles Admin on 12 March 2012
We did not have a good run up to the game. Shahril and Rizawan got injured on Friday, and we couldn’t get clearance for Mun Sung Man in time. That is three first team players out. I cannot fault the players.
We let ourselves down in the last 10 minutes of the first half. We tried to come back in the second half, but a defensive error did not help. The boys tried hard in the last 20 to 30 minutes, but we have to credit Home United. We were just caught on the wrong day.
Its not very good to start the season this manner, but I want the team to know that the coaching staff will always be behind them. I am very sure we will progress.
Yazid is a true champion as always. It is not just today, but the past three years that he has been keeping us in the game.
We will look at what went wrong and look forward to the game in Brunei.
