USM FC show excellent form

The USM FC team showed excellent form when they defeated Pos Malaysia 1-0 on home ground yesterday.

The win gave USM FC three valuable points to press forward in the TM Premier League which has a line up of excellent teams including PKNS Selangor, Malacca, Malaysian Armed Forces and others.

Mohamad Baser Mohamad Napae netted the USM FC goal in the 84th minute with a header that went past the Pos Malaysia goalkeeper, Mohd. Fadhullah Yusfisar.

USM FC coach, S. Veloo said he was very pleased with the win and described it as a great start to encourage his players in later matches.Nevertheless, he added that there were several weaknesses that needed to be improved upon to strengthen the performance of the team especially in the attack and defence strategy.

"In tonight’s match, we lost several golden opportunities to score a goal and this weakness has to be checked immediately. The defence needs to be strengthened to ensure that it is not breached," he said.

He hoped that in the next match against the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) at Stadium Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Negeri Sembilan, next Friday, his players will maintain the momentum of their game.

"We hope that the players handle the pressure and play as usual. As PDRM is an excellent team, we expect a fierce match. Most importantly, our players have to show a strong sense of committment and as for the match against PDRM, our target is to win at least one point for USM," he said.
