New Fort Lauderdale Strikers coach Gunter Kronsteiner took had a chance to assess his squad and a number of trialists on Thursday, despite torrential rain disrupting a closed-door scrimmage at Lockhart Stadium.
The NASL club went up against Honduran CONCACAF Champions League side CD Olimpia for 75 minutes before lightning intervened and caused the game to come to a premature end.
Kronsteiner assessed his team along with assistant coaches Richard Lopes and Raoul Voss
Neither teams was able to find the net as the slippery conditions made it difficult to move the ball although the Strikers had a great chance when Darnell King found himself behind the defense but could not find the target.
“Everyone has to fight and give everything (on the field),” said Kronsteiner. “I like the way they play, and what everyone is able to do by themselves, there’s a lot of potential, and now we just have to bring them together.
“They are really practicing very well, and the coaching staff is definitely up to date. Everything is working well.”
