BSL UNITED 0-7 FUTERA UNITED

Sunday 24th March 2024 - 16:00pm Thailand / 09:00am GMT - TSP


Futera United bounced back from the disappointment of the previous week’s defeat to Dome FC to romp to a comprehensive 7-0 dismantling of a poor BSL United, putting their title quest back on track.


Coach Breeze rang the changes after a poor display in the heavy defeat to Dome FC. A change of formation saw Futera revert to a 4-4-2, with Golf leading the line and Phu playing off him. Beam and Bank played in the wide midfield positions, with Taku and Bew in the middle. The tone of the afternoon was set inside two minutes when the outstanding Beam produced a sublime piece of skill, nutmegging the BSL right-back before ghosting past another two defenders for what was to be an appetizer of what was to come.


After dominating the opening exchanges, with Bank giving the BSL defence a torrid time, Futera went ahead in the 11th minute. A curling inswinging corner from Beam found Taku arriving late at the far post to gleefully volley home, giving the away side a 1-0 lead. Futera continued to press forward, and Beam, cutting in from the left flank, played an incisive through ball with the outside of his boot, allowing Phu a clear run on goal. The young playmaker made no mistake with a cool finish into the bottom right corner to double Futera’s lead.


A minute later, Futera extended their lead when an attempted through ball from Bew took a kind ricochet off the BSL centre-back and landed at the feet of Golf, who slotted home for his first goal of the campaign, making the score 3-0 to the away side. With Futera full of confidence and Beam and Bank a constant threat, they went further ahead at the half-hour mark. A short corner allowed Beam to cut into the box, and his attempt at goal was diverted in by Bas for his second goal of the season. Futura went in 5-0 up at halftime after another kind rebound found Taku, whose neat pass found Golf, who completed his brace, somehow stabbing the ball home after seemingly mishitting his shot.



The second half began with the introduction of Mai, Aek, and Sea Game, and the game followed the pattern of the first half, with Futera clearly superior in all areas. A neat build-up involving Aek and Beam allowed the young winger to cross for Mai to fire home at the back post, making the score 6-0. With BSL barely managing to muster a shot on goal, Futera had numerous chances to increase their lead but had to wait until the 91st minute to make it 7-0. Mai did well to retrieve an overhit cross, and he laid the ball back to Aek, whose deep cross found Golf, who unselfishly volleyed back to Sea Game, who smashed the ball home from six yards out to complete a fine victory for Futera.


An outstanding display from a rejuvenated, youthful Futera side, although it’s hard to assess our performance as BSL were very poor. Beam produced one of the best performances I’ve seen by a Futera player, and Bew was, as always, impressive in midfield. Bank gave the BSL defence a tough afternoon, and it was good to see young Sea Game impress in the second half. With Dome FC losing to Look Esan, the title race has been blown wide open, and on the back of this confidence-building win, Futera are very much back in the mix. Exciting times as we look forward to our next fixture. Futera Su Su.
