After our close encounter with them last week, we again meet HIBS at PSA, the pitch I can’t recall any games we won for the past few years. Before the match, we had a talk on a couple of points to be fixed from last week’s game, important ones of which include (1) the pressure to their side backs who were highly effective in providing long balls to the back of NIPPON defenders, (2) to go wider and try to utilize the ample space at both sides of the huge pitch, among others.
Despite the talks above and good warm-up, the game started unfavorably for NIPPON conceding early goals to the opponent. HIBS attacking line looked very dangerous throughout the 90mins especially No.19 who was not in the same contest one week earlier. HIBS players were all physically well trained and hence able to take advantages of the size of their home pitch. Well, to be fair, the game was for HIBS and the final score, 0-7, was a very fair one. Thanks to HIBS for the fair and competitive games for two weeks.
3 more games to go before the end of the season. We need to show our pride and quality to the league in the remaining matches.
MOM for HIBS: No 19
MOM for NIPPON: N/A
