Ying Tong Iddle Tai Po: Port Face Hong Kongers in Friendly

 

With the Thai season about to take an international break, Port have lined up a friendly against Hong Kong Premier League side Tai Po FC, aka The Green Warriors, presumably for their shirt colour rather than any commitment to environmental activism – one doubts any genuine eco-warriors would fly 20-odd people over to Bangkok just for a friendly. But they’re the current HKPL champions so won’t be a pushover for what we presume will be a largely second-string Port side. They also boast an Englishman in their ranks in the form of midfielder Toby Down.

The game takes place today at 17:00, but will be played at Customs Stadium rather than the hallowed turf of the PAT. Entrance is free.
