#MSL2017: Selangor 3-1 Felda United – Key Moments, Man of the Match


3rd minute: From the right, Hadin played a short corner to Zah Rahan, who crossed the ball into the box and found Mootaz, who headed it off-target

5th minute: Norshahrul Idlan Talaha was able to out run his marker. However, Khairul Azhan with a great save to deny the striker

18th minute: From the throw-in, Forkey Doe lobbed the ball over a defender to find Juliano Mineiro making a run on the left. However, the Timor Leste international shoots over with only the keeper to beat

20th minute: Mineiro again with the next chance with a powerful attempt outside the box in the middle and again his effort went over

27th minute: Gaston Cellerino shrugged off the pressure from Bunyamin but his shot inside the box went straight to Khairul Azhan as the Selangor keeper saved it.

29th minute: GOAL! A long ball from the halfway line found Victor Astafei onside and the Romanian scored with a beautiful chip over Farizal Harun

41st minute: Hadin with a great cross found Fakrul running from the right, but he headed it straight at the keeper

42nd minute: Selangor given a penalty after Astafei was fouled much to FELDA’s annoyance

43rd minute: GOAL! Forkey Doe’s penalty was saved by Farizal, but Raimi was able to put in the rebound.

45th+1 minute: GOAL! Mineiro’s free-kick was about to find Rizal Fahmi who timed his run perfectly. Farizal Harun, upon seeing this, came off his line to get the ball first, but the Selangor defender got the smallest of touches to guide the ball into the net

HALF-TIME: Selangor 3-0 Felda United

50th minute: Norshahrul was able to find space outside the box, but his low shot went wide.

59th minute: Gaston Cellerino turns around inside the box and shoots, but he hit the post

74th minute: Substitute Lucas Cano went for a spectacular from way outside the box and Khairulazhan did well to parry the shot away.

84th minute: GOAL! The two substitutes showed terrific combination for this goal. Ridzuan Abdunloh crossed the ball in for Cano, who was unmarker and headed the ball in to pull one back.

87th minute: It was Mootaz’ turn to go for a spectacular attempt, and again it was well-saved by Khairulazhan

90th+2 minute: K. Kannan, who just came on, had a good shot on-target and Farizal had to go down and save it

FULL TIME: Selangor 3-1 Felda United

MAN OF THE MATCH: Victor Astafei

It was a dominant display from the entire Selangor team but Victor Astafei would probably be our pick for Man of the Match. The Romanian attacker worked tirelessly throughout the match and was consistently looking to get into good positions as well. But the highlight of his performance would undoubtedly be the goal he scored on the 29th minute – a mesmerizing chip that left Farizal Harun completely helpless. Terrific performance from the former Otelul Galati man!
