Dordoi made 4 changes and still ran out easy 11-2 winners

Dordoi from Kyrgyzstan took Yeedzin (from Bhutan) to the cleaners yesterday in the 1.30pm kick-off. As far as AFC President's Cup matches are concerned, this was a total mismatch. Dordoi's players are far more experienced, fitter and technically better than Yeedzin's students, it's chalk and cheese really, but they still managed to let their guard down a couple of times and Yeedzin will be pleased to have scored twice in the 11-2 thrashing. Dordoi knew they were going to win before the game began and they took it easy for much of the 1st half. They led 4-1 at the interval and though their pin-up boy striker Mirlan Murzaev netted twice, he missed another half dozen clear chances, either through his wayward finishing or through the efforts of Yeedzin's brave keeper Leki. Murzaev's second goal was contentious in that he was offside when the ball was played through but deemed onside as play continued in the second phase as he tapped the ball home. This crappy offside rule is confusing for all concerned, players and fans alike, and the sooner its discarded the better. Dordoi's other 1st half goals were awarded to Davron Askarov though Yeedzin defender Kinley got the final touch, and David Tetteh. Claude Maka Koum and Murzaev continued the scoring spree with half-time sub Anderson de Souza, aka Dan Juan, also netting a brace. Two more for Murzaev took his personal tally to five and an Adyl Bekbolotov lob made it eleven for Dordoi. Yeedzin's players were able to celebrate two goals, both the result of lazy defending by Dordoi, allowing Chencho Gyeltshen on 40 minutes and sub Tshering Wangdi, in time added on at the end of the game, to lob the ball over the Dordoi keeper, who was left exposed. The victory confirmed Dordoi's qualification from the group stage, which was never in any doubt, while Yeedzin now meet Nepal on Wednesday in a match to decide third place.
