Casey denies complacency after Asia take upper hand

Europe trail at EurAsia Cup

Team Asia's Sunghoon Kang and Poom Saksansin produced the biggest surprise of the day, defeating Europe's Major victor Henrik Stenson of Sweden and Frenchman Alexander Levy.

"It was a really good morning, we played really solid", added Fleetwood.

"I suspect that we'll go out tomorrow and be ready to play, and foursomes is a very different game", Bjorn said. "Anirban and SSP go out against Fleetwood and Stenson in the first match". "Even though we were down early in a lot of matches, we weren't getting blown out", he said.

"I don't want to ever sound cocky with a team like Europe, and I'm not going to get cocky, but it's a great start", Asia captain Arjun Atwal said.

Cabrera-Bello's immaculate putting saw the pair lead by one at the 18th tee but they failed to match Asia's birdie and had to settle for a half point.

Europe, who started the day trailing in four of the six matches, managed to calm proceedings and turn things around by eventually finishing the day trailing by just one point.

Britons Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton then picked up a 2 and 1 win against An Byeong-un of South Korea and Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat as Europe moved ahead.

Matthew Fitzpatrick and Thomas Pieters won 3-and-2 against Poom Saksansin and Sunghoon Kang to give Bjorn hope of winning the session, but his final two pairings let him down.
