In Italy we have a say: ‘the one who starts off well, he is already halfway to his achievement’.

Hopefully it will apply to Frank Liivak and his second season in Italy at SSC Napoli Primavera.

The Saurini band had their first pre-season friendly yesterday afternoon against local team U.S. Val di Pejo and won 4-0.

Liivak’s start was fulminating as the Estonian striker scored immediately on 3’ and made it 2-0 two minutes later.

Bifulco and De Iorio (25’ and 65’ on penalty) completed the final score.

The first goal was on a one-on-one with the goalkeeper as Frank managed to enter into the penalty box through the Val di Pejo defense and come to a confrotation with the goalkeeper who could not stop his close-to-the-ground shot.

On the second goal, Frank took advantage of a wrong throw from the goalkeeper and beat him with a fine lob-kick.

Saurini seems convinced by Frank’s first trainings as he gave him a start as lonely striker in the 4-2-3-1 in the following line-up:

Girardi, Granata, Mangiapia, Anastasio
Palmiero, Prezioso
Bifulco, Gaetano, Lombardi

SSC Napoli Primavera will now face a more probing test on the 2nd of August when they will take on peers from Inter and Hellas Verona.
