Brazil-born Japanese forward Bruno Suzuki netted a brilliant quadruple as Malaysian outfit Terengganu FC handed I-League champion Chennai City FC a thrashing 5-3 defeat in their opening Group B match of the Sheikh Kamal International Club Cup at MA Aziz Stadium in the port city Tuesday.

Bruno not only thrashed the opponent but also scripted a complete turnaround as he started his goal-fest when his side were behind 2-1 due to two Chennai goals that may be termed as gifts from the Malaysian players. 

The Japanese restored parity with a comfortable header before giving his side the lead just before the first-half whistle with a fine lob over the keeper.

The 29-year old scored two more goals in the second half, one with a spectacular finish from the top of the box before smashing his fourth goal with a close-range finish.

The Japanese informed after the game that it was the first time in his career that he scored four goals in a game, and said the tournament will remain a fond memory for the rest of his life.

Earlier, it was midfielder Rahmat bin Makasuf who put Terengganu ahead with only three minutes into the clock before two silly blunders from defender Mohd Faudzi and goalkeeper Amirullah Bin Razali allowed Chennai’s Japanese midfielder Katsumi Yusa and Mashoor Shereef score two goals within 34 minutes.

Chennai have four Spaniards in their squad, including captain Pedro Manzi, who scored a goal from the spot three minutes before the end of the stipulated time, but that could only reduce the margin of defeat. 

Pedro informed after the game that most of the local players in their squad are young and new and lacked experience that is required to compete in a game of such magnitude.
