Azwan broke Lions’ hearts

Incredible!!! It wasn’t one of the best performances by DPMM FC and yet they snatched three points at the death through an Azwan freekick in injury time. It was heartache for Courts Young Lions who defended tremendously well against the top team in the S-League. For your info, it was a match between the top team and the bottom team of the league.

Hence the crowd expected goals galore which really didn’t materialise. Judging from the first half, DPMM FC failed to make an impact and I came 10 mins before half time and the reporters were saying that I didn’t miss much. Shahrazen hardly trouble CYL’s keeper Syazwan Buhari and Basiru Osman was heavily marked by the visitors. Mind you both forwards have 7 goals between them and they struggled to find the net against a team that have conceded 12 goals in 5 games.

The crowd grew frustrated and some even left their seats with 10 minutes left in the match. Basiru and Shahrazen had great half chances but one hit the bar and the post respectively. From that point, I thought that was it. It was gonna read the headlines as 0-0 but it wasn’t meant to be.

In injury time, DPMM FC was rewarded a free kick after a foul on substitute Helmi. Up came Azwan Salleh who had a 35 yard distant to play with. To the surprise of Syazwan (in goal), his disadvantage in height allowed Azwan’s unintended freekick snuck above him for DPMM FC’s winner.

I actually felt sorry for YCL for their tremendous effort to play against one of the top teams in the S-League and plus it was a DPMM FC’s fortress which is tough for visitors to gain points. YCL’s coach expressed his emotions on the result as he believed his boys didn’t deserve this. “It was painful for us. We organised well and we didn’t allow many chances for them except for the set-pieces. This is not the first time that we lost games like this. I know it’s a matter of time before we start winning matches.”

DPMM FC coach Simunic spoke of the misfortune DPMM FC had against Tampines Rover and now luck is in their favour as he reflected on the last gasp winner from Azwan. He praised YCL on playing one of their best performances and defended his team that they didn’t play bad at all.

“Before we were hunters and now the rest of the team are hunting us,” quoted DPMM FC coach.

DPMM FC are now top of the table though Harimau Muda have a game in hand. It’s gonna be an interesting race this season. Go DPMM FC.

Azwan Salleh worked tirelessly in midfield and so did Jerkovic

I’m not sure what he’s trying to say (during half time)

Simunic was also busy by the sideline and he picked up the ball on many occasions

The biggest cheer (well, the 2nd biggest after Azwan’s goal) whenever the female medic from Courts Young Lions ran on the pitch

Syazwan was given medical attention in the second half

Perhaps the second one that did the trick a few minutes before he conceded the goal. This picture had many likes and comments on my instagram and Facebook btw.

The goal that Syazwan had no chance saving

Now I love this celebration.. It reminds me of a bomb being released from a plane

A good reason for Wardun to join the celebration. He wasn’t busy at all in goal.

A big heartache for CYL as they almost stole a point at Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium

The crowd erupted after the late goal from Azwan

The moment they saw me shooting at them, they cheered more *lol*

YCL weren’t happy with the referee and showed their frustration after the final whistle
