Selangor got three points in the 2023 Super League match by defeating Kelantan FC 3-0 at the MBPJ Stadium in Kelana Jaya.
The match statistics showed that the team had 63% ball possession, 84% pass accuracy, 19 attempts, and 7 corner kicks. Ayron Del Valle scored the first goal in the 28th minute, then Rauf Salifu added two more in the 80th and 90th minutes.
Tan Cheng Hoe, Head Coach of Selangor FC, is happy of the team's tenacity to win three points in a row and encourages the young players to keep working hard because they are the club's future.
"I applaud the guys on winning three consecutive points." Yet, as Head Coach, I believe there is much more that we can improve, particularly in terms of ball management, attacking, and other skills.
We observed in the #SELKEL match that the substitute players had the most impact on the team. One of my primary goals in assuming control of Selangor is to prepare young local players for the future. I am confident that if given the opportunity, they will deliver the best performance. "I also hope they keep working hard to ensure they are listed in the starting lineup since they are the hope for the future," Tan Cheng Hoe said.
From yesterday's #SELKEL match, some important things can be seen, such as:-
Ayron Del Valle is the third highest scorer in the Super League so far
Selangor FC's new forward immigrant scored in the 28th minute of the #SELKEL encounter, putting him in third place as the top scorer in Super League 2023 so far with five goals. With his good passes in launching assaults to support his teammates, Ayron appears to be more compatible with the team.
Rauf Salifu showed his fangs
Rauf Salifu, a young Ghanaian striker, is getting in shape and has begun to stand out, hitting two goals in the 80th and 90th minutes of the game to help his team win. Rauf has made two attempts, two accurate efforts, and scored his first two goals with the Red Giants in 22 minutes of activity, according to statistics.
Khairulazhan increases the amount of 'Cleansheet'
Khairulazhan, the team's key custodian, happily made #SELKEL's third 'cleansheet' match in the 2023 Super League and his 31st with the Merah Kuning squad.
Norhakim Hassan added his 'assist' record
Hakim, the team's winger, was introduced in the 62nd minute of the game to add to the sting of the assault. He assisted Rauf Salifu's second goal in the 90th minute and was the second to last player to make an accurate pass to Mukhairi Ajmal before Rauf Salifu scored his first goal.
Thank you to the Red Giants fans who came out even though the game concluded late at night. We appreciate your assistance.
Hopefully, the squad can keep this positive momentum going in the upcoming game. Red Giant, come on!
