Global takes on Archers; gifted Nazari marked man
Filipino-Iranian standout Omid Nazari will be a marked man as Global and Green Archers clash for the top spot in Group B today while JP Voltes seeks to sustain its impressive start in the UFL Cup at Rizal Memorial Stadium.
The spotlight will be on Global midfielder Nazari as he aims to follow up an auspicious debut with another strong showing against Archers in the 4 p.m. kickoff.
Buoyed by a Nazari hat trick, Global rolled to a 7-0 demolition of Pasargad to grab the headstart in a tough Group B.

JP Voltes tangles with Forza at 6:30 p.m. with the winner seizing the lead in Group A.
Voltes opened the season with a 3-0 rout of second division champion Laos.
