A late flurry of goals condemned the Sanpanese to their record defeat in a friendly against fellow Confederations Cup underachievers Craitland in the first meeting between the sides. The Craits opened the scoring within the first quarter-hour through Alexis' jinked run and finish, but found the EMU hosts a formidable foe for the majority of the remainder of the match. It wasn't until the final stages that the Craitish pressure finally tolled; İlker Keremov's long-range low shot slid home minutes before Jan-Morteņ Juliaĵsen struck a penalty home after Jamie Mälent was fouled. The score somewhat flattered when a fourth found the net with little time left, but Jan Tórsen can be forgiven for passionately celebrating his first international goal.

The result may not be Sanpantul's proudest day, but further tough tests are yet to come this summer if they hope for any success at their home finals, while the Craits will be happy to notch up a win after a poor Confederations Cup performance and are likely to organise a couple more friendlies before they travel to Batavia in the summer.
