#GarudaSelect Head Coach, Des Walker, hopes that his players will be able to repeat the good performance they had against QPR, in the match against Leeds United U18, Tuesday (20/4). According to Coach Des, players must be able to show their quality in front of a team like Leeds United.
"Their pattern of play has been formed in yesterday's match, especially in the scintillating first half display. The players can control the ball well. Usually it's a bit difficult to gain the ball against QPR, but we managed to put pressure and the players could keep the ball moving by controlling and passing the ball well," said Coach Des .
Although he appreciated #GarudaSelect's performance against QPR, Coach Des still reminded the players that facing against Leeds would be more difficult. The Leeds Academy has produced a lot of great players and they have a lot of good individual abilities. Those are the things that the players have to pay attention to.
"They will become a more serious test, the game will be difficult. We have to play fast like in the last match and hopefully we can get the same result. The level of the match will certainly be higher. Leeds have a good game system," said Coach Des.
"This is football. We want to continue to develop better and better. This is a big stage, don't be afraid of Leeds. Although we must respect them, we also must show them our abilities," added Head Coach Des.
