Global Cebu faces Mer­alco Manila


GLOBAL Cebu FC is in for a tough matchup when it faces the league-lead­ing FC Mer­alco Manila Sparks in the Philip­pines Foot­ball League (PFL) at the Cebu City Sports Cen­ter (CCSC) to­day. Game starts at 4 p.m. Global Cebu is still per­fect at home, win­ning its last game against the Aguilas Davao FC, 3-1, last Wed­nes­day.

That win put Global Cebu in sec­ond place in the team stand­ings with 33 points.

But the team will be up against a pow­er­house in FC Mer­alco Manila Sparks, who lead the league with 40 points.

Global Cebu has nine wins, six draws and four losses while the Sparks have 12 wins, four draws and two de­feats.

“This is our third game in seven days so re­cov­ery is of ut­most im­por­tance,” said Global Cebu’s head coach Akhbar Nawas in a pre­match press con­fer­ence at the Golden Prince Ho­tel.

The Sparks’ most re­cent match was against JP Voltes, which re­sulted to a 1-1 draw.

Mean­while, at half­time of to­day’s game, the 19th Aboitiz Foot­ball Cup will hold its open­ing cer­e­monies.
