Kelantan's S Chanturu, the Man of the Match in their 3-0 win over the LionsXII, earned praise from LionsXII coach V Sundramoorthy for his spectacular scissor-kick (above) that broke the deadlock.
Chanturu might have been the stand-out player, but Norfarhan Mohd and Norshahrul Idlan Talaha were also more than a handful for the LionsXII as they dovetailed delightfully upfront.
Take the second goal, for example. The 27-year-old Norfarhan made a great run after Norshahrul dummied over the ball to latch on to Badri Radzi’s through-ball and fire past LionsXII goalkeeper Hyrulnizam Juma’at.
Despite not scoring, Norshahrul more than redeemed himself by creating two late goals after missing a fourth-minute penalty won by Norfarhan.
