FG caught up with Glacis United midfielder Craig Galliano to talk about their win over Mons Calpe in the Rock Cup last week, being surrounded by experienced players such as Marcos Zappacosta and Jamie Bosio – plus more.
Galliano reflected on Glacis’ Rock Cup quarter-final win over Mons Calpe last Wednesday, “I believe the game we played vs Mons was very good. We knew it was gonna be a very tough and physical game but I believe we handled it well. We played the football we have been doing and it wasn’t going to change the way we want to keep playing.”
The 18-year old joined Glacis in January and is starting to enjoy a good run of form – we asked Craig about his time at Glacis so far, “My time here since I’ve come in has been brilliant, I have been playing many minutes, scoring goals and helping the team as much as I can. Before I signed in January I didn’t know what to expect because I didn’t know who was in the team or if I was going to be playing but I believe it has worked out for me so far and I’m enjoying football again.“
Glacis take on fellow Challenge Group side Manchester 62 in the semi-final with a mouth-watering opportunity of playing Europe just two games away – we asked Craig how the team feels going into Wednesday’s game, “The team right now is full of confidence. On Wednesday nothing will change, we want to win and play the way we are asked and want to play. We are expecting a tough game because they are also a good physical team but of course, I’d say 2 teams wanting to reach the final.”
For any young player, being surrounded by experienced personnel will always have a huge impact on your career – we asked Craig how being around players like Marcos Zappacosta, Miguel Londero and Jamie Bosio has helped him, “I have been playing around many experienced players for a few years now, but now playing for Glacis with players like Zappa & Bosio has assisted and helped me settle in!”
