Assalammualaikum and hello everybody!
It is about a weeks I did not update my blog and now I am back!
So, our football season is now underway, Liga Super has just finished its first matchday and not many shocks as favorite teams many of them are won the match. So, let's round it up!
JDT 2-0 Pahang (Sumbangsih/Charity Shield)
Our footballing calender started with Piala Sumbangsih or Charity Shield, one thing that I disagree with this cup tie is this match also consider as a league match. So if one team win the match they will win ultimate prize, the cup and 3 points. So what is the meaning they play one week earlier than other matches? They should follow English Community Shield or SuperCopa Espana of Spain. That's better.
So for the match, it was clear that JDT was ready for that match. The fitness, endurance and everything was good while. Figeroa's goal was magnificent, Antonio's too. Clearly, JDT is the biggest contender for league title.
Lions XII 5-3 PDRM
Goals galore in Jalan Besar! Lions XII, a team that all around Malaysia hate them and none of us give an attention to them this season have scored 5 past a giant-killer last season. They've scored 5, but Dramane Traore scored 3 to reduce the gap but still can't to hold Lions to win their first game. But Traore managed to got first hattrick of the season. Congrats!
ATM 0-2 Kelantan
One period, these two teams were beast. But now, they are now are not really beast but still entertaining to watch. Took place at STAR of Paroi, Kelatan managed to scored from a great free kick from ex-Perak man, Noor Hazrul Mustafa. Knuckle ball master blasted the ball into the net past Syed Adney before Carillo the import scored in second half. Great win for East Coasters.
Terengganu 2-0 Selangor
Oh God, I hate to write this. My favorite team just lost the league opener, luckily it was an away game though. Selangor should won this match but they failed to make all the chances count. They've got a goal from Hazwan but it was ruled offside. After wasting so many chances, Ismail Faruqi scored an absolute wonderful volley in the box even me was stunned. Second half, Selangor have more few chances but they still cannot scored. Until Gustavo's free kick kills the game and seals the win for East Coast side. Hard luck Merah Kuning!
Perak 2-0 Sime Darby
The relegation survivor last season has started their campaign with style! The Northerns especially Perak and Kedah are well known as the producer of young talents. One of the youngster, Nurridzuan Hassan has scored for Bos Gaurus and ex-Kedah star Namkung Woong also scored his new team. Great star for Perak, can they stay as a team that never relegated in Malaysian football history? We will see.
Felda United 3-3 Sarawak
Newly-promoted Felda United seems like struggling after trailing from Billy Mehmet's strike, but the managed to turn around the result with lead the match with scoreline 2-1 and before Sarawak levelled. But Edward Wilson puts The Seattlers in front in last five minutes before Sharol Saperi grabs his brace with last-minute strike to ensure both of the teams shared the spoils.
Verdict : The opening night provides no shock but only for Terengganu-Selangor 's match. As it stands, Lions XII is the leader, followed by JDT and Kelanta for top 3. Pahang, Selangor and Sime Darby are all at the drop zone.
okay, see ya next time! #MSL2015
