The uncertainty over their future league status could not stop them. Loss of 3 key management personnel for this week's game could not stop them. Aggressive and roughhouse tactics indulging Vietnamese opponents could not stop them. Which leads many to wonder, what will it take to stop this new-born Kamikaze Renaissance. Ever since the new season launch, there has been a certain pomp, about this Kamikaze team, and that was once again highlighted as they tore apart their Vietnamese opponents. Whilst, rumours had it, that this was a qualifying game for a new league that they were supposed to take part in, KKZ management would not confirm anything.
That, however, did not stop Kamikaze from dominating this encounter as they beat their opponents 4-2 convincingly. A brace from Vishnu, the first after excellent work by Safar, and the second from an assist by newboy Maaran ensured the young forwards Golden run continued. Another brace to match that was scored by Fazail, the first from the spot kick after dangerman Safar was fouled inside the box, and the second through an excellent free-kick taken after a foul on himself. Fazail's resurgence reaffirmed his status as a deadball specialist in the team, and this can only spell bad news for their opponents.
The man of the match was El Fazail, for his dazzlery on the wings and set-piece brilliance. But credit must be given to Safar, Hasiim, Maaran and Vishnu for an excellent performance.
While, they have had a run of good results, this team must keep its feet on the ground and prepare for tougher roads ahead. For glory is not earned, by sailing through the good times, but by also battling through the tough ones too..
