Helguson returns with a goal as QPR stroll to victory in Malaysia

Sabah Select XI 0 QPR 5

 Heidar Helguson scored on his return to action and Djibril Cisse netted twice as QPR won their opening pre-season friendly in Malaysia, where Park Ji-sung was handed the captain’s armband. Bobby Zamora put them ahead by tapping in the loose ball after Anton Ferdinand’s header had been parried.

 Helguson, who missed much of last term with a groin complaint, doubled the lead after the interval following good work from Cisse. Jay Bothroyd fired in the third before Cisse finished superbly for the fourth and then scored again, this time cleverly rounding the keeper and slotting home.

 Flagship signing Park made his Rangers debut along with fellow recent arrival Andrew Johnson, while Samba Diakite featured for the first time since his permanent move to the club was rubber-stamped. On-loan Manchester United defender Fabio also made his debut, coming on as one of 11 substitutes for a second half in which the hosts visibly tired and Rangers’ forwards were able to take advantage.

 Goalkeeper Robert Green, who was given an extended break because of his involvement with the England squad at Euro 2012, has joined the R’s squad in Asia and could play in Friday’s game against Kelantan.
