    Global Outclasses Tampines Rovers, Advances to Next AFC Champions League Phase

    LORENZO DEL CARMEN JANUARY 24, 2017

    It’s one small step, but an important one nonetheless for the sake of Philippine football.

    Global Football Club enjoyed a memorable 2-0 win over Singapore club Tampines Rovers to advance to the second preliminary round of the 2017 AFC Champions League.

    Ahamd Azzawi (61′) and Misagh Bahadoran (73′) provided the goals for the home side tonight at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila. Khairul Amri could have pulled one back at the 88th minute but his penalty was saved by Global goalie Patrick Deyto.

    I came here only about four days, but today the players they keep my advice so second half we get two goals and (Deyto) saved a penalty…. I’m so happy,” commented Global coach Imai Toshiaki.

    Both teams started the match in anemic fashion. Set pieces were the main avenues of the two clubs’ attacks as there was a considerable lack of fluidity in the final third of the pitch.

    Global skipper Bahadoran signaled the home side’s attacking intent when he initiated an offensive sequence all by himself. Bahadoran controlled the ball majestically which allowed him through on goal, only for Rogers goalie Mohamad Izwan to make the save.

    Izwan was then called to action once again when the home side won a free kick at the edge of the Rovers’ box. Matthew Hartmann stepped up, only for his attempt to be nothing more than a routine stop for Izwan.

    Yeah, Australia is ranked 44 in world by FIFA, so they are much tougher than any South East Asian country that we have faced.

    Brisbane Mauls Global FC

    Published February 1, 2017, 4:31 AM
    By JONAS TERRADO

    Game on Feb. 21 (Rizal Memorial Stadium)
    7:30 p.m. – Global vs Magwe

    Global received a harsh lesson when it comes to playing top-quality football after being thrashed 6-0 by Australian side Brisbane Roar yesterday and bow out of the prestigious AFC Champions League.

    Four goals by Brisbane in the first half, including the first three from Brandon Borello inside the first 30 minutes, proved to be too huge a deficit to overcome for the United Football League double winner and saw its bid to qualify in Asia’s premier club competition end after the second preliminary round.

    After his S-League stint, MARK HARTMANN is now making waves in the Malaysian Super League (MSL), scoring a Hat-Trick for Sarawak FC in their recent game against Misa FC.

    AFC Cup Preview: Who Will be Global's Game Changer?

    The league champs host Burmese side Magwe on Tuesday. Which player will step up?

    Bob Guerrero
    Published 1:12 PM, February 19, 2017
    Updated 1:12 PM, February 19, 2017

    Global FC were unable to sneak into the AFC Champions League through its qualifying stage, falling to a heavy defeat at Brisbane against A-League side Brisbane Roar.

    But the good news is that the Pinoy champs will instead join Ceres as the other Filipino club in the second-level AFC Cup. This is the third consecutive year that the Philippines is represented in this competition for clubs from Asia's up-and-coming member associations. Global pioneered Filipino representation in the tournament in 2015, narrowly missing out on the group stage.

    Global are in Group F with defending champs Johor Darul Ta'zim of Malaysia, Magwe of Myanmar, and Boeung Ket Angkor of Cambodia. Ceres is drawn in Group G with Hanoi FC of Vietnam, Felda United of Malaysia, and Tampines Rovers of Singapore.

    The format in the group stage is double-round-robin, home and away, with the top two teams reaching the knockout stage.

    There will be plenty of pressure on Global to perform. The side beat Tampines Rovers in the first Champions League qualifier before being walloped by the Roar 6-0. Global fans then took solace in the fact that Brisbane went on to defeat Shanghai Shenhua 2-0 in the final qualifier in Shanghai to progress to the group stage of the AFC Champions League. Shanghai Shehnua features the brilliant Argentine Carlos Tevez in attack.

    Global will need some or all of their starters to be on their A-Game. We al know that Misagh Bahadoran will be their marquee player. Here are the other vital cogs of coach Toshiaki Imai who are looking to make a splash.

    Matthew Hartmann. Matty has gone from precocious senior team debutante at the age of 15, to persona non grata for his walkout in the 2011 SEA Games, to elder statesman of Global.

    His maturation and development on and off the pitch has been heartening and just in time for Global's Asian aspirations. The 27-year old will likely play left back on Tuesday night since regular LB Serge Kaole is out injured.

    “I used to play left back in England, although there it's different. In England it's all about the number of crosses you put in. Here it's a challenge to go up and down the field in the humidity and with the fast tempo of the game,” Hartmann explains.

    The Southampton native, who was once referred to as “the best left-footed player in the Philippines, bar none,” by ex-Nomads coach Mick Dennison, is also relishing the possession-based approach of Imai. Expect to see Global try to play out of the back and through the midfield instead of sitting back and counterattacking or hoofing the ball long.

    Hartmann also has the added motivation of being a father to fifteen-month old Olivia, his first child. The names of Olivia and Danielle, his longtime partner and Olivia's mum, are tattooed on his right arm.

    “I do everything for her,” he says of his daughter. “All the work for my next (player) contract will be for her.”

    “Having a kid has definitely made me wiser,” adds Hartmann.

    Matt will also be inspired by the goalscoring exploits of brother Mark, who is making hay for Sarawak in Malaysia. Check out this stupendous goal in a recent match.

    Paul Mulders. The 36-year old Filipino-Dutchman is on his second spell with Global after two years with Ceres.

    Hartmann: What Was That All About?

    Mark Hartmann produced another wonderful goal and assures fans that the only way for Sarawak to go, is up.

    BY OOI KIN FAI
    25-Feb-2017 19:56:25

    If his last few performances are any indication, Sarawak fans will be rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect of Mark Hartmann continuing to feature prominently for the Crocs. Having scored a stunning free kick earlier in the season, Hartmann added another one to the growing list with another long-range effort in the 3-1 win over PKNS on Saturday.

    "Good performance from the team. We would have liked to not conceded that last goal. It was a very open match but we did enough today to get the three points," said Hartmann after the match.

    Deployed in a new position as coach David Usop tweaked the formation against PKNS, Hartmann was playing off Mateo Roskam and he was happy to have been able to contribute in any way and had a great influence on the match despite the unfamiliarity with the position.

    "Today we changed to a 4-5-1 where I played a little bit deeper and that means I could get on the ball a bit more. Obviously attacking wise, Roskam was a bit alone so it was important for me and Lee [Jong Ho] to get a bit up. It worked obviously," explained a pleased Hartmann.

    When asked if he will no be known for being a threat with his shooting from distance, Hartmann indicated that it is not something that he's used to in his career but happy that it's falling into place for him now, in that regards.

    Despite the win, actually a bad game for Global as Beongket Angkor is not really that strong a team. I expected them to at least score 1-2 more goals, and they didn't.

    In what is probably the best performance by a Philippine Football Club in international competitions so far, Ceres-Negros FC not only beat Singapore's Tampines Rovers FC, but utterly routs and blanks them. Again, Tampines is one of the best clubs in the S-League, and to see them humbled before a huge Philippine home crowd is simply amazing.

    The Ceres Negros Panaad Experience

    Ceres Negros lead the way - on and off the field.
    Thursday, March 9, 2017

    Ceres Negros FC put on a dominant display as they demolished Tampines Rovers in their second group match of the 2017 AFC Cup in front of a packed Panaad Stadium in Bacolod.

    Three first half goals from Ceres put the Busmen on their way to a comfortable victory, with Tampines Rovers struggling to find answers.

    New signing Iain Ramsay made a dream start for his new team Ceres with a superb strike in the opening seconds of the match, as Ceres never looked back.

    Signed from Kaya FC in the offseason to boost the squad, OJ Porteria and Junior Muñoz put in splendid performances in their debuts in front of their home fans as well.

    With Coach Thomas Dooley watching from the stands, Azkals goalkeeper Roland Muller and Jeffrey Christiaens impressed in overpowering a surprisingly overmatched S. League side.

    Displaying crisp passing and quick one-twos, the Bacolod side issued a statement of great intent to the rest of their group.

    But what's more impressive is not just the performance on the pitch, but the preparation the management of Ceres put in prior to hosting the match.

    From the banners lining up the airport arrival halls, to the posters lining up the streets of Bacolod, to the giant billboards with the players' faces plastered in the highways, Ceres Negros FC made sure that all efforts were made to ensure all in Bacolod knew of the magnitude of the game.

    And the fans duly came in droves.

    Bucking rainy weather the whole day, yellow clad supporters packed Panaad Stadium to give their support to their home team.

    Global Queen City FC lost badly via a rout against the Malaysian Football club Johor Darul Ta'zim. Their lackluster win against a weak Cambodian club last week shows that this team isn't at the level where they should be, and it finally caught up with them in this game.

    Ceres-Negros FC could only manage a scoreless draw at home against a tough Malaysian Football club, Felda United. Roland Mueller managed to do a number of impressive saves including a Penalty shot to keep the score nil-nil. They will now have to face Felda in Malaysia.

    International Club Football action returns for the Philippine Football Clubs next week on Apr. 4, 2017, Tue., when Ceres-Negros FC faces Felda United FC in Malaysia while Global-Queen City FC faces Johor Darul Ta'zim FC at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum. Both games will likely also be covered live by the Fox Sports Channels.

    AFC Cup: Can Ceres Deliver on the Road Once Again?

    Ceres-Negros stakes an undefeated away record in the AFC Cup against Felda United. Can they silence the Malaysian fans?

    Bob Guerrero
    Published 4:18 PM, March 31, 2017
    Updated 4:18 PM, March 31, 2017

    In any sport, playing away from home is a challenge. Delayed flights, arduous layovers, obnoxious fans, unfamiliar food, and dodgy dressing rooms are only some of the reasons why visiting teams struggle.

    This week Global have the benefit of playing at home in the AFC Cup as they take on JDT in Rizal Memorial on Wednesday. But Ceres must venture out to Malaysia to tackle Felda United at the cavernous Shah Alam stadium outside Kuala Lumpur. It's 80,372 seats may not be filled, but no doubt home support will be strong.

    Felda actually plays in the Tun Abdul Razak Stadium 190 kilometers away, but this match will be closer to KL, a huge break already for Ceres. The afternoon kickoff might also deter some working fans from making the trip.

    The Busmen are at the midpoint of their 2017 campaign and are undefeated in three matches in this round-robin group stage. They opened the stage with a 1-1 draw at Hanoi, clobbered Tampines at home 5-0, then were held to a goalless standoff in Panaad against this same Felda team. The Filipinos are atop the standings in Group G on five points, level with Hanoi but have the benefit of a better goal difference.

    Ceres tends to take road games seriously. According to team manager James Dinsay, AFC Cup teams have assistance on their road expenses two days before every matchday. The club, however, often prefers go three days earlier, with the club footing the bill for the extra day. This time Ceres will fly to Malaysia on Sunday, just two days previous. Dinsay says coach Risto Vidakovic has decided to work on his tactics with his team in Manila for a bit more, especially since he lost training days during the FIFA window.

    Vidakovic will be missing some key players to his squad. Manny Ott is suspended for the match on accumulated yellows. Since he was unavailable for the Azkals' game against Nepal last week due to a back injury, he might have skipped this match anyway. Ott's creativity will be sorely missed in the middle of the park.

    Kevin Ingreso might not be fit enough for the game. The midfielder is nursing a gimpy hamstring. Offseason acquisition Simone Rota has been training but is likely not going to see action until the PFL begins sometime in late April. He is still recovering from knee injury. Wide player Patrick Reichelt is still far away from being fit. He may start training in June.

    Another new pick up for Ceres is Filipino-Iranian-Swede Omid Nazari. The striker is a Filipino passport holder who unfortunately cannot suit up for the Azkals since he has already played for Iran. Nazari is not registered for the AFC Cup but supposedly his name can be added to the list for the knockout stages. Nazari last played in the Philippines for Global. Look for him to terrorize defenses in the PFL, where he can apparently be registered as a Filipino.

    Ceres have brought in two new Spaniards into their lineup, Manuel “Super” Herrera, a centerback, and striker Fernando Rodriguez. There is also another Spaniard on their staff, conditioning coach Pepe Losada. The team's Asian import this year is defender Kota Kawase from Japan.

    Global-Cebu FC edges Johor Darul Ta'zim FC in the 2017 AFC Cup. GCFC made a good adjustment from their previous game and scored three goals in the first half.

    But JDTFC made a counter adjustment in the second half and nearly caught up with them.
