F-17 's Match Report
What a game. We were down 3-0. They were definitely technically better than us. Their players also seemed faster and quicker than us. We lost posession a lot more this match as they closed down really well. We were caught flat and through balls were played for the opponent striker to run to.
Nonetheless, we stuck to the plan and kept going. Wen Xiang was great in defence and excellent in attack going forward. Resiliently, we scored our first goal from a low cross by Wen Xiang for Samar to tap in. Samar's opportunistic nature and eagerness got him to make runs forward and score that goal. Gagan scored the next goal followed by a through pass by him to Samar to score.
Our tough mindset kept us going to get the draw in the last 5 minutes against a very strong opponent at 3-0. This will stick with us for a long time because we have achieved it.
