CPK faced two challenges on the second round of the Macau League 2016: the first was Kei Lun, since it was expected to play against a team with many experienced and physical players at the back, waiting for a chance to a counterattack, and the second was the weather conditions, since it is not easy to keep concentration when playing in such low temperature in a heavy field. However, CPK did not need much time to score, and at the first minute, Diego scored his first goal at the season. It seemed that CPK would score more, but the players are still knowing each other, and the first half ended 1:0. Even tough CPK was controlling the match, the score was dangerous under the weather and field conditions.
The time in the restroom, the change of the uniform and the substitutions gave extra power. The second half started with the team keeping the control of the game, but in a more organized way. The substitutions showed that CPK has more than 11 players, and the technical staff has different good options for this year. Then the goals appeared naturally, Chong, Diego, Roni and Ronaldo scored, and the match ended 5:0 to CPK.
It is early to say, but CPK is showing improvements in several ways such as the communication among players; the integration of players, with the commitment of the non-locals, the maturity of the locals and the fresh blood of the new players; the addition of Paulo Conde to the existing technical staff composed by Inacio, Stephen and San Ma, along with the tireless support of Kai, Fei and Mark. If CPK maintains this focus, we may have a sweet surprise at the end of the season.
Congrats to all players, coaches and supporters!! CPK Power rules!! Go Go CPK!!
