DPMM FC cruised to a 5-0 win in a friendly match against MS ABDB ahead of the much-anticipated new S League season at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium yesterday.
The elite Brunei-based outfit are reaching advanced stage of their preparations with the league opener set to resume on March 31 with Albirex Niigata (S) looking to add on to their ever-growing cabinet with another Community Shield.
MS ABDB, fresh from winning their third domestic title in the DST Super League, were hoping to provide a stern test but the 2015 S League winners were in buoyant mood.
The friendly allowed newly-appointed coach Rene Weber to experiment his starting line-up as well as have a better look on his players in a much more competitive environment.
The ‘Gegar Gegar’ men boast a relatively new set of players with a number of DST Super League players joining the squad ahead of the new season.
The club still have two empty slots for foreign quota with 23 players already confirmed in the squad including new Iranian striker Mojtaba Esmaielzadeh, who was roped in from Iranjavan FC.
