The #Highlanders absolutely flayed Durban based side #CherriansFC on an extremely cold, chilly and rainy night at the People's Park stadia yesterday. This was the 4th pre-season game played by #NEUFC. #NicolasVelez scored two to add to his fearsome reputation, while #FrancisDadzie also added to his tally. The prodigal #AlenDeory scored a sublime goal while Boithang Haokip opened his account on this pre-season tour. Mid-field combatant #KondwaniMtonga also guided a header home to add gloss to a comprehensive rout on the night. What a utterly irrepressible performance! #NEUFC #PowerOf8 #8States1United #Preseason #Durban
