Zdenek Zeman saw “some improvement” in Cagliari’s 5-1 victory over Rappresentative Friulana.
The Sardinians were 2-0 up by half-time through a Simone Benedetti header and Adryan strike.
Samuele Longo, on a two-year loan from Inter, got their third before Adryan completed his brace.
Local lad Antonio Loi completed the rout after a give-and-go with Antonio Balzano.
Davde Astori and Daniele Dessena missed out due to muscular problems.
“It was a game I needed to see the characteristics of the players,” said Coach Zeman.
“The team was tired, there was some improvement, but that’s normal considering we’re working more on fitness levels at the moment than technique.”
