The winner was not from the usual man, Duric, but Japanese Akihiro Nakamura.
The Eagles though had played well but it is clear they need a goalscorer for with the chances they had, it should end in a draw, minimum.
Yet at this moment, it looked like a long shot as their local forwards are not scoring and their foreign recruit is following suit as well.
So without goals, how can the Eagles get anything from the game.
