EAGLE UNITED FC 's Match Report
1st game of the season did not really produce the kind of result that we were hoping for. We did not start aggressively and not convincing enough when dealing with opponent’s direct ball to the penalty box. There were too many miss kicks and a couple of lapses which allows the opponent to take full advantage. It was a much better display from Eagles in the 2nd half. They were more intense and showed more desire to get back into the game. The early pressure paid off when we managed to pull one back and subsequently add the second midway thru the 2nd half. Both goals scored by Fong and Harits. There were disappointment when we finished the game losing 4-2 but credits to Sporting Lisbon as they were the better side. However, having said that, I believe Eagle United will come back strong and can take heart from their 2nd half performance.
MOTM: The introduction of Shahrul midway thru the 1st half, did energise the team even though it ended 4-0. With his tireless run and willingness to win the ball back, he creates that little spark which were lacking in the early part. His desire and effort were clearly on display which would be a great asset to the team. Shahrul is the man-of-the-match for Eagle United opening game and hope he keep that momentum going into the next one. Keep it up!
