Malaysia’s Wan Zack Haikal is credited with three assists for FC Ryukyu when he featured for the first team in a 7-0 thumping of Siesta Yomitan after a three-month layoff
Wan Zack Haikal returned to FC Ryukyu’s starting 11 yesterday in a match against Siesta Yomitan and provided for three of their seven goals in a complete rout.
The 22-year-old was kept out action for the Japanese Football League (JFL) side for three months with a thigh injury after his debut back in April this year.
The FC Ryukyu Facebook page wrote that he played the full 90 minutes but he failed to score in the game which ended 7-0.
Wan Zack said: “I felt very comfortable in this game compared to my debut game.
“However, personally, I think that it was a bad game for me but a good result for the team.”
FC Ryukyu currently sit in eight place in the JFL with 34 points from 24 games and Wan Zack is keen to make an impact in the 10 remaining league fixtures.
“I have to look forward and do more for FC Ryukyu in the remaining season.
“Communication is still an issue for me, but I look forward to my next game.
“I would like to play as simple as I can,” the Pahang-born player added.
Wan Zack recently featured for the Malayan Tigers’ valiant battle against FC Barcelona where he was most remembered for his clash with Cesc Fabregas.
The former Harimau Muda player will also likely be a part of Malaysia’s 2015 Asian Cup qualifiers against Bahrain come October 15.
