The trio who tamed LionsXII

Submitted by Tan Kim Han on May 5, 2012 - 1:23am



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.



LIONSXII can kiss goodbye for MSL title 2012 but still can be runner up n not too bad for the first season after 17yrs absent. Now focus for Malaysia Cup 2012 matches to came after the league. LIONSXII must have believe to win the Malaysia cup 2012.
