ISL side Bengaluru FC’s reserve team defeated English division 3 team AFC Wimbledon U18s 3-1 win in a friendly match before the Next Generation Cup 2022 in the United Kingdom. The coach of the reserve team, Naushad Moosa, expressed elation about getting an opportunity to play against a foreign team and beat them. In his post-game interview, he thanked the Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) and the Premier League for this opportunity. 

“This is something great that Reliance and FSDL have done. This partnership will really help. I could hear the players speaking that there might be some scouts, and we can get a bigger opportunity. So, this is something that goes into a player’s mind and they might want to give a better performance at least thinking that they might get an opportunity. So this is something which is really nice. I feel this partnership between FSDL and the Premier League should go a long way,” Moosa said.

Captain Namgyal Bhutia was extremely happy with this win and said, “It feels amazing to win against Wimbledon. It was a very good game for us. Both the teams created so many chances. We gave our best and scored the goals. I think it’s a good opportunity to play against Leicester City because we can get so much confidence after playing them. We learn from them also, and we try to give our best.”
