Maybe some of us recognised the man in the circle.
Good Year Drift Team
Get back home around 2pm and checked Arshad’s body temperature. Alhamdulillah, he’s getting well and while I’m updating this blog he is asleep without any disturbance, without cough, without flu & he’s breathing normally. That’s great, alhamdulillah.
At 4:30pm, I’m ready to have another football friendly match against Kg. Pasir FC. FYI, Kg. Pasir FC is a well trained team. Ahhh…nevermind that, it’s only a friendly match anyway. Second match after almost 4 years I retired from serious football. I play for Phase 6 (Taman Melawati) football team. Actually we never had any match for about 3 years ago. The last match if not mistaken was against Sime Darby FC in Damansara League and we used MOBA (Melawati Old Boys) as our team name. At 5:00pm I drove my SR4 to Kg. Pasir football pitch, somewhere near Pantai Dalam and reached there at 5:30pm. The first match was 3 weeks ago, know nothing about the opponent and we only know they are newly formed team. The first friendly match result was draw 1-1.
Okay, back to today’s match. Our team Manager/Coach, Masyri, came to me and said “Poji, kau first line up”. “Alamak!!!” I replied. Shocked. This is the second time. The first time was 3 weeks a go. Totally shocked, as I started as first 11 player and the thing made me shocked was, I have to play as right defender. ‘Kacau’ ni…coz I am not a sprinter and the most crucial was I am not in a good shape!!!.. For today, Masyri put me back into my favorite position, center midfield and have no specific role. Means, FREEROLE. Yes!!!... that’s great, I can do whatever I want and I can go wherever I want. Hehehe…
Phase 6 Team, as you can see, most of them are youngsters.
I was appointed as team captain for this 2nd friendly match. There were 5 players in veteran category (inclusive myself hehe..) and there were 9 senior players (that are inclusive 5 veteran players). Others are new players and most of them are under 20 years old.
Kg. Pasir FC scored first after 15 minutes match started and we managed to encounter 1 minute after, goal scored by Fikri Hakim. Farhan’s brother (not Farhan of AF laaa..). Then Khairul scored another goal and that made we lead the match 2-1 until 1st half match ended.
I was replaced by Andi, another veteran for Phase 6 team. 2nd half match not quite interesting, because there were to many young players and maybe they’re nervous. Still we manage to scored another goal, scored by Anuar Abu Bakar ( not the Johor/Selangor ex-player) after he received a great grounder crossed from Arif, young talented player in our team. The match ended with we won this 2nd friendly match, 3-1. Even the opponent players started to play rough and robust.
That’s why I said I had a great day today, I watched the drift challenge today and maybe will be at there drift course again tomorrow and we won the friendly football match against a well trained team with 3-1 and I was the team captain for the match. Wow!!..what a great day, alhamdulillah…
