Dabingyaba standing out in Australia

The in-form striker scored for Western Pride in the last twenty minutes to secure the win against defending champions Moreton Bay United.
Dabinyaba’s attacking potential was evident in the Oceania competition in Port Moresby, earning his team the well earnt runners-up position behind New Zealand.
Papua New Guinea’s performance caught the eye of Western Pride coach Graham Harvey, who was particularly impressed with Dabingyaba.
“His ball control is good and he’s obviously very quick,” Harvey said.
“Combine these two together and he will cause some teams problems until the end of the season.”
Dabinyaya joined Pride from Lae City Dwellers where he won this year’s Papua New Guinea National Soccer League Championship.
Harvey is hopeful the signing will signal the next step in the growing relationship between the Australian club and Oceania countries.
“I’ve been looking at developing a few links for Pride outside of Australia, PNG being one of them,” Harvey said.
“When I heard Nigel was available for a short stint I thought it was important to bring him over because in the long term there is a plan to develop a two-way relationship with PNG.”
In making his debut, Dabingyaba has also become the only current full international to play in the National Premier Leagues Queensland competition and the second capped international to play for Pride.
