PSG banked on a strong start to subdue a hapless Nomads side, 7-2, and snap a four-game skid in the United Football League at the Emperador Stadium in Taguig on Thursday night.
The winning squad composed of a mixture of Iranians, Africans, and Filipinos, built a three-goal lead in the first half and never showed signs of let-up as seven different players registered for PSG, which moved to sixth place, overtaking its victim in the standings.
Nomads continued to fall in the 10-team field, suffering its eighth straight loss.
“The result is important for us, but it’s more important we were able to show our fans (we can play) one-touch football and control ball possession,” said PSG coach Esse Sedigh, whose club played its third game without starting goalkeeper Reza Ataei.
“We still have four games to go. Hopefully, if there will be no bad luck, we can catch up to fourth place,” the Iranian mentor added.
Michael Nelson drew first blood five minutes into the game, before leading scorer Emmanuel Mbata and skipper Hamed Hajimhedi struck a goal apiece near stoppage to give PSG a commanding lead at the half.
Luis Infante pulled a goal back for Nomads in the 60th minute, which hardly mattered as Belinga Blanchard retaliated for PSG just a minute later.
Jalsor Soriano and Kalilou Toure also contributed to the PSG rout.
