Terengganu vs Selangor match highlights

TERENGGANU

Suffian Rahman - 5

The custodian made few mistakes but could not do much to keep out Selangor's second goal and their third; a penalty.

Kamal Azizi Zabri - 5

Helped in attack in the first half, but did not do his primary task of defending well in the second, resulting in the two Selangor goals.

Igor Zonjić - 5

Did not do well to stop Red Giants forward Rufino Segovia from threatening the Terengganu danger area.

Nasrullah Haniff Johan - 5

The centre back failed to keep the visitors' attackers away from their goalmouth.

Fitri Omar - 4

The experienced defender played poorly, conceded a penalty that gave Selangor their third goal, and lost his composure, committing further fouls and remonstrating with the referee when Terengganu needed cool heads after going behind.

Shahrul Aizad Zulkifli - 6

Got a goal to his name, but couldn't reproduce the same form to help the hosts after they went behind.

Thierry Chantha Bin - 5

The Cambodia midfielder did well enough to help the hosts control the middle of the park. However, it was his poor marking of Evan Dimas Darmono that allowed the Indonesian to score Selangor's second goal and turned the game on its head.

Ashari Samsudin - 5

Failed to contribute significantly to the team and was taken off in the 57th minute by head coach Irfan Bakti Abu Salim.

Malik Ariff - 5

Much was needed of the forward, but he failed to deliver and combine well with striker Kipré Tchétché. Taken off in the 52th minute.

Lee Tuck - 6

The English attacker worked hard throughout the match, especially in the final 15 minutes. But unlike their 4-1 league win over the same team at the same venue last month, this time Selangor goalkeeper Norazlan Razali was on top-form to deny him.

Kipré Tchétché - 6

The Ivorian striker got an assist and worked hard, but like his teammate Tuck was denied by Norazlan, and let down by his teammates' support and deliveries.

Substitutions:

Partiban Janasekaran - 5

Came on early in the second half but the midfielder failed to stop the visitors' comeback.

Faiz Nasir - 5

Much was asked of the diminutive forward when he replaced Ashari, but he failed to deliver. Towards the end of the match he had a glorious chance to pull one back with a header, but he only managed a weak attempt that went straight into Norazlan's arms.

Ismail Faruqi Asha'ri - 5

Came on just after the hour mark, the midfielder failed to contribute to his team.

SELANGOR

Norazlan Razali - 9 (Man of the Match)

The last time he was here, the goalkeeper shipped in four goals against the Turtles. This time around, he made at least five brilliant saves to keep Selangor in the game and deny the hosts from pulling one back.

Namathevan Arunasalam - 7

With head coach Maniam Pachaiappan given a gardening leave by the management and replaced temporarily by assistant Nazliazmi Nasir earlier this week, the wingbacks did more defending in this match. The right wingback did what was asked of him, and was even involved in their second goal; delivering the long freekick from the right that was then headed by Willian Pacheco into the path of Evan.

Razman Roslan - 6

The Selangor defence was porous at times, but the skipper powered through the injury he picked up early in the match, before he was finally replaced by Pacheco in the 53rd minute.

Ashmawi Yakin - 6

His first ever start for Selangor in their 3-0 league defeat to Perak last week, in which he scored an own goal, was humiliating to say the least, but this time he showed improvement alongside Razman, and then Pacheco.

Kannan Kalaiselvan - 7

Did enough on the left wing to stop Ashari and Tuck.

Halim Zainal - 7

The midfielder performed better in the second half after the visitors went in front, showing better composure to help Selangor's transition from defending to attacking in their own half.

Amri Yahyah - 7

Had a hand in their first goal, and functioned well enough as a makeshift box-to-box midfielder. However, his decision-making in the final third was questionable, oftentimes making wildly inaccurate attempts in lieu of delivering the ball to his striker Rufino Segovia.

Evan Dimas Darmono - 8

The Indonesian U23 star did not play as well as he has performed in previous matches, but contributed immensely with his game-changing volleyed goal from the edge of the box; Selangor's second of the night and his first ever for the Red Giants.

Joseph Kalang Tie - 7

The former Terengganu fan favourite again worked hard and even won a penalty that led to the visitors' third goal, but still did not produce the chemistry needed to support Rufino.

Rufino Segovia - 8

The Spaniard had played better previously, but no one in their right mind is going to criticise him for this when he scored the equaliser and a penalty goal in the match.

Ilham Udin Armaiyn - 8

Threatened Terengganu's right flank and assisted Selangor's equaliser.

Substitutions:

Willian Pacheco - 8

Had a night to forget against Perak last weekend and did not start against Terengganu, but he was ultimately the game-changer when he replaced Razman. His header led to Selangor's second goal, and when they were in front by two goals he did well enough to stop the hosts from finding their second of the night. But there were times when he was static in defending and got caught, and was fortunate that Norazlan kept it airtight. 

Saiful Ridzuan Selamat - 7

Came in the 72nd minute as Evan's replacement, and did well to help Halim win the ball in midfield and hoof it away.

Shahrul Igwan Samsudin - NA

Late change.
