Goalkeeper Adre Arido Giovanni admits that he is very happy because he had the opportunity to fight and win several matches against famous English club academies.

Goalkeeper Adre Arido Giovanni admits that he is very happy because he had the opportunity to fight and win several matches against famous English club academies.

"The best moment for me is to be able to bring #GarudaSelect to win hard matches against great clubs such as Watford, Crystal Palace and QPR. Against Manchester City, although we lost, I still feel good because I learned a lot and could play in their academy stadium, which is very good, "said Adre.

"As for the moments off the pitch, I will never forget when we traveled to London. I could see Big Ben with my own eyes. When I was little, I could only see it from cartoon series,”added Adre.


Meanwhile, the top scorer of the third batch of #GarudaSelect, M. Faiz Maulana (10 goals), thinks that the family spirit in the team is the most memorable thing. "The unforgettable moment for me here is the family spirit, both on and off the field. To become the #GarudaSelect top scorer this season, including to score hat-trick and quattrick, are also extraordinary things. I will certainly miss the moments when we were able to hang out, to watch TV and to sing together, "explained Faiz.


Midfielder Fernando Pamungkas, who is a senior in the team because he is an alumnus of the second batch of #GarudaSelect, is grateful that he had the opportunity to be trained by the two experienced coaches, Dennis Wise and Des Walker.


"Also I could use the quality training facilities. To be able to fight together, even in difficult and sad circumstances, during the six months when we are away from the family, was really a special thing. We all really enjoyed the experience here, had the experience to face against big English teams. I myself am very happy that I could score against the Palace. We were intensively trained by two British legends, Coach Dennis and Coach Des. Moreover, the facilities here are very complete, "said Nando.


Shabani Kingazi, a #GarudaSelect foreign player who comes from Tanzania, is very happy with his experience with #GarudaSelect over the last six months or so. "For me, all the moments with #GarudaSelect are the best moments. I am very happy when we trained together and will never forget how we practiced in the bubble system. It was the first time for me. I am happy because I could learn many things here, including learning Bahasa Indonesia from my teammates , "said Shabani.
