Asia retain narrow EurAsia Cup lead


"I believe in all 12 of them, as I always will". "We have got to go out and put some blue on the board and try to win the singles".

"It's as simple as that".

"I would say that this team is very capable of winning the Singles but we are getting a good fight this week, that's for sure. We are slightly disappointed with the outcome today but I'm sure we can rise to what's ahead of us tomorrow", said Bjorn.

"A lot of these guys have come out and there are cobwebs and rust that needs to be knocked off". "Not quite what we were looking for".

"The competitive awareness still needs to get up a gear and that needs to be there tomorrow or we won't win".

As golf in Asia continues to grow at a rapid rate, the amount of players from the region making a positive impact on tours around the world points to a bright future for the sport and adds credibility to the EurAsia Cup.

"Definitely everybody knows we are underdogs, except my team", the 44-year-old said.

"You saw how early on, everybody was kind of down and losing a few matches early". I'm not surprised or shocked by our results so far.

India's experienced duo of Lahiri and Chawrasia paid dearly for their patchy start over the first five holes, by which time Henrik Stenson and Tommy Fleetwood were 3-up.

An ecstatic Arjun Atwal, Asia's captain said, "I have said from the beginning that this team is capable of winning and I have believed in them". I do that every day and I talk to a lot of people.

"We're not underestimating this team by any means", said Casey, who won his match with Fleetwood and is representing Europe for the first time in nearly a decade.

After trailing 3 ½ to 2 ½ on Friday's fourballs, Europe drew level through the forceful pairing of Tommy Fleetwood and Henrik Stenson.

Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton, both from England, put Team Europe ahead with a 2-1 victory over Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat and South Korea's An Byeong-Hun.

Matthew Fitzpatrick and Thomas Pieters then gave Europe a two point-lead with a 3 and 2 win against Kang Sung-hoon and Poom Saksansin in the fourth match of the day.

Gavin Green and Yuta Ikeda, Asia, def. Rafa Cabrera Bello and Alexander Levy, Europe, 1 up.

The anchor match saw Bernd Wiesberger partner Englishman Ross Fisher, a victor on Friday, against Haotong Li and Nicholas Fung but despite moving 2up at the par five 6th green Asia responded quickly and Li continued his strong putting display from the opening day's play to secure a 3&1 win and maintain Asia's slender advantage heading into Sunday's singles.
