Free State Stars look to be firing on all cylinders after a clinical display of attacking football saw the Premiership side oust Super Eagles 4-0 at the Free State Stars Development Grounds on Saturday.
With the international break halting the domestic season, coach Luc Eymael was keen to use the friendly fixture to increase the fitness of some of his first-team hopefuls.
And off-season signing Edward Manqele was the first to make an early impression, netting 14 minutes into the encounter after a sublime one-two with skillful winger Sinethemba Jantjie.
Six minutes later the former Kaizer Chiefs striker was involved in another goal as his effort was deflected into the back of the net by the opposition defender.
The National First Division side would have been aggrieved with their lack of composure as their best spell in the game saw them miss a host of good opportunities.
However, Ea Lla Koto saw off the danger and netted two further goals before full-time through defender Bangaly Keita and second-half substitute Danny Venter.
