He added that the friendly was a trial session for seven foreign imports who were fielded in the match.

“So far, one or two foreign imports have been absorbed into the team.

“The important aspect for us is that the imports must be able to play on the left and right flanks, defence and attack,” he said.

He added that they were still looking for potential import players for the positions.

“We already have Yuta and Akira but still need two foreign imports who can play well in the team.

“Hopefully, we will get the players we want through the next two days of selection as the Premier League season looms,” he said.

Kuching FA will unveil the 2020 squad and the President Cup squad on Friday.
