Jayapura, 18/3 (Jubi) – The impressive performance of Persipura Jayapura midfielder Imanuel Wanggai during an AFC CUP match against Maldivian champions New Radiant  on Tuesday (18/3) drew praise from Persipura coach Jacksen Tiago.

“Our opponents were one of the best teams. So, we worked hard to earn the best result and make sure that Persipura will be qualified to the next round,” he said.
