- Match 1
Tuesday, December 13, 2016
Tabuan started the game well organised as we stayed compact from the start playing against the skillful Koreas.
The korean left midfield was exploring our tall right back, Ethan from the start resulting in him making 2 mistakes in getting his body position wrong and playing ball square into the middle.
Luckily on both occasions the goalkeeper came out quick to clear off the danger.
Aiman substituted Ethan at the 12 mins to try stabilise the right side and did fairly well.
The korean 1st goal came in the 19min from a free kick that played diagonally towards far post goal and took a bad bounce that went straight into goal.
2nd goal at 26min was from midfield losing control of the ball in the middle 3rd and the korean playing a 1-2 combination play to go behind 1v1 with our goalkeeper to score.
2nd half was much improved as Tabuan dominated at most time in the korean own half field but couldn't‘t create a enough chance to score.
The final 3rd goal was conceded from a mistake by the center back at the 56min, wafiq as the korean steal the ball from his control and shot to score quickly.
Overall it was a good performance by the well organised Tabuan team as the Korean coach gave compliment to Tabuan well organised football.
The weakness was the inexperience that resulted in jittery in the game.
This can be improved with more good quality game played like this,
