UK Asian Championships – Asian Image
First team were invited to compete in the Asian Championships 2023. An 8 team competition where the best Asian teams come together to hold the Asian Championships.
Our first opponents Blackburn United.
Very little was known of them hence a tried and tested lineup picked itself. Bradford dominated early moving the ball around crisply & with purpose in the first 5 minutes which led to a near identical goal from the district cup final where a cross field ball was taken under control superbly by Umar ‘El Pistolero’ Ali squaring the Blackburn defender up leaving only one outcome. 1-0.
No further goal additions were made despite Bradford domination at times showing some classy combinations which on other days would have got 2/3 goals. 1-0 HT.
Second half saw Bradford score 2 more, firstly Umar shooting from 30 yards which was fumbled over the line by Blackburn’s keeper & a tidy finish from Haroon who was a nuisance as always when called upon.
Bradford controlled majority of the game. Keeping the ball at will & rarely being troubled which can only been seen as a professional performance as bigger tests lie ahead.
