Papua New Guinean representative Midfielder, David Browne, says being back in PNG and playing fellow countrymen, has been amazing so far.
Giving morale support to the quietly spoken Browne, Alwin Komolong, who says the team is in high spirits, especially after the SP Sports Award Ceremony, which saw them take out the ‘Team of the Year’ Award.
Browne iss nothing short of brilliant on debut for Papua New Guinea. His class brought to the fore in the recent match against Tahiti. Dominating in his role on the left side of midfield, with Tahiti’s experienced defenders, struggling to cope with the FC Groenig player.
His debut however, cut short, when amidst controversy, he was sent off. His red card from that match, however, has since been downgraded to a yellow, which will allow him to take the pitch against Solomon Islands on June 9th in Honiara.
Both 21-year-old Browne and vice, Komolong, headline the new breed of PNG’s international talent.
A youth-based side, with a smattering of experience in the likes of Raymond Gunemba, Ronald Warisan, Michael Foster and Nigel Dabinyaba.
And alongside the rest of their team mates, will be heading overseas against Solomon Islands, in high spirits and buoyant.
Other members of the side yet to join, include A’aron Spain, George Slefendorfas and Jamie Woodlock who are awaiting their dual citizenship visa’s to be approved.
In this team, ride the hopes and aspirations of a nation.
