Perak and Terengganu battle for final day glory – football news

The finale, the match that closes the curtain on Malaysian football in 2018, the Malaysia Cup final will also be the deciding factor which out of Perak and Terengganu FC is the better team. This will be the third final that both teams have contested together in, with both teams having won one final each.

Earlier in the Super League this season, Perak won the home match 3-2 while Terengganu won their home match 2-0. Paired together in Group A of the Malaysia Cup, Perak lost the home match 3-4 while Terengganu lost their home match 1-2.

As luck would have it, the result between the two teams is tied at 1-1 in the Malaysia Cup final and 2-2 in the 2018 season, so it’s almost like fate took its own course and decided that one more match is needed to find a winner between Perak and Terengganu.

The potential banana skin for Perak in the run to the final was not the semi-final clash against Sabah but rather the quarterfinals against PKNS FC, a team which they have not been able to beat in four meetings this year.

Mehmet Durakovic’s team managed to navigate their way past The Red Ants after winning 0-2 away, following a nil-nil draw in Ipoh. The team is reliant on the attacking pairing of Gilmar Filho and Wander Luiz to be the threat up front and it’s a very complimentary pairing. 

The Brazilian duo brings to the table a variation in their respective game that gives Perak just the right combination that defenders fear. Gilmar has the physical prowess and the ability to be in the right place inside the box while Wander has the guile and creativity with that left leg of his that works like a wand.

Comparatively, the Terengganu team could be looked at as the more industrious side of the two teams. In Lee Tuck who easily clocks the highest mileage in any match, they have someone who has the craft but also put in his fair shift of work.

Of course, the danger up front is Tchetche Kipre, the talismanic skipper for Terengganu. His goals in the second leg against mighty Johor Darul Ta’zim were what took his team to the final and there were palpable fear in the stands at Tan Sri Dato Hj Hassan Yunos Stadium, every time Kipre has the ball at his feet.

There will be interesting battles all over the pitch as well with Faiz Nasir or Ashaari Samsudin going up against Leandro dos Santos, Kamal Azizi trying to stop the penetrative runs of Nor Hakim Hassan and J. Parthiban attempting to stop the team that gave him his professional bow.

Shah Alam Stadium on Saturday will be filled to the brim with both sets of fans looking forward to end a long winless run in the Malaysia Cup. A battle between the two teams who have been neck and neck for a majority of the season – it is high time a winner is found between the two teams.

TCH delighted with positive impact substitutions – football news

Malaysia recovered from the poor defeat to Chinese Taipei last week to carve out a solid 1-3 win over Cambodia on Monday night but it did not come without it’s difficulties. Tan Cheng Hoe’s men were swarmed right from the kick off and struggled for most parts of the first half.

Cambodia opened the scoring with a well taken set piece routine through Hong Pheng as Malaysia’s defence were caught napping with their positioning. Nasir Basharudin was forced off with an injury and debutant Azzizan Nordin came into midfield, that proving to be the starting point of Malaysia’s revival.

The team looked more composed on the ball after that and started to wrest control of the match away from the home side, albeit without threatening the Cambodian goal a great deal. It was the second half replacements that helped shape a comeback win for Tan with Shahrel Fikri in particular, putting in a man-of-the-match performance.

“The players bounced back with a better performance today even though we conceded an early goal. I have to compliment the players for their fighting spirit. I want to see the players in future to be more composed playing in front of a partisan crowd.” 

“Yes (substitutions had an impact), because some of the players played in the Asian Games and the Chinese Taipei game. So when fresh players came in, it gave an impact on the game. There’s a lot of positives in our team but also a lot of weakness. We still have October and November to prepare further for the Suzuki Cup,” said Tan in the post-match press conference.

Tan’s opposite number, Keisuke Honda was in his managerial debut and a strong approximate 40,000 fans turned up to see his first outing. There was a wave of confidence in the home side buoyed by the fans and not dampened by the continuous downpour that delayed the start of the match.

Having seen the impact first hand, Tan acknowledged that when Malaysia go back to Phnom Penh for the first group match of the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup later this year, it will be a more testing match for the Malayan Tigers especially after Honda is able to work with the players for a longer period.

“Maybe because of their new coaching setup, it’s not easy for the players. I’m sure when the Suzuki Cup campaign starts, Cambodia will not make it an easy game for us. I hope my players can take a positive experience from this match when we return here for the competition.”

“Can see that the players are really motivated and fought for every ball. My players had to absorb the pressure and play according to the tactical way we’ve been playing,” added Tan.
