    GLOBAL FC moved a step closer to a semifinal berth in the Singapore Cup as it escaped DPMM, 1-0, behind the endgame heroics of Rufo Sanchez Wednesday night at the Jalan Besar Stadium in Singapore.

    Living up to his billing as a prized loan from United Football League champion Stallion, Sanchez fired the marginal goal five minutes into second-half stoppage time to lift the UFL runners-up to the victory in the first leg of their quarterfinals against the squad from Brunei.

    The second leg is set Saturday at the playing same venue.

    With Paul Mulders and Joshua Beloya pulling the strings in midfield, Global conjured chances, which it failed to convert most of the match.

    The squad, with numerous Azkals mainstays in the fold, was finally rewarded late in the injury time when the Spanish Sanchez caught a long free kick from Jeffrey Christiaens before heading it in.

    Meanwhile, Loyola Meralco opens its own quarterfinal campaign against Tanjong Pagar on Thursday night at the Queenstown Stadium.
