We continue our build up to this years Pepe Reyes Cup and, like we did with Raul Procopio yesterday, we spoke to David Carrasco, one of the two brothers taking control of Europa FC.

“The team is looking forward to this game and are ready for this massive test after a long and arduous preseason. We know Lincoln are a great side, a team with bags of experience both on a National and International level.  They have a great set of players and a great Manager who knows the league well and they are without a shadow of a doubt going to be a great test for us.”

We asked David which player he highlighted from a star studded Lincoln side:

“It has to be Liam Walker for me. He is a player with lots of talent with great offensive play and superb technique.  He can turn a game upside down in no time  and we will have to keep a very close eye for him; it won’t be easy.”

Without a shadow of a doubt the big duel will be in Midfield with Liam Walker coming face to face with the man they call “El Bisho.”  El Bisho has played amongst the elite of Spanish Football and was given specific man marking roles when he faced the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

“It’s a beautiful duel that is going to unfold in the middle of the park with two great players. We will not rely on one man though as we look forward to a great collective defensive display.”

We asked Carrasco if he had a favorite as to who was going to win the game:

“Lincoln are favourites, due to their history, their triumphs and their massive success.  We will try our best to give it our all and hopefully will sneak a historic victory for us.  Above all what we want is to see a great game of football.”
