Selangor FC lost to Kuching City FC (KUC) in the first leg of the 2024/25 FA Cup Quarter Final at the Sarawak State Stadium last night.

Although the result did not favour the Merah Kuning squad for this leg with a 1-2 result, the team can still qualify for the next round as this stage is held over two legs. 

According to Nidzam Jamil, Head Coach of Selangor FC, he is confident that the team will bounce back at home, “It was not the result we wanted but we are lucky because we still have another 90 minutes to get the win. I will still be behind the players and I believe they did well last night especially in the second half. The players definitely want to turn things around in the upcoming match and are hungry to prove themselves in front of the home crowd and make sure we qualify for the next round," explained Nidzam Jamil.
