Shaheen Defeat Toofan 3-0

3 Sep, 2015

A jam-packed AFF Stadium witnessed Shaheen Asmayee's 3-0 commanding win over Toofan Harirod today, September 3rd. This victory came as a delight for Shaheen fans, seeing as how their team didn't perform well in their first game against Simorgh Alborz.

It took five minutes for Shaheen to draw first blood. Reza Allahyari sent a short pass to Hashmatullah Barakzai in Toofan's penalty area and he comfortably scored the first goal of the game.

The lead goal granted Shaheen the confidence to tighten their defense line and create many more opportunities to score.

Hashmatullah Barakzai tactfully dribbled past Toofan's defense men and fired at Shaheen's goal, the ball hit the post but electrified the AFF Stadium at the 40th minute.

In contrast Toofan failed to create any serious challenge to Shaheen during the first half of the game but Rafi Barakzai had an opportunity to score at the last minutes of the stoppage time with a free kick. He fired and Shaheen's goalie Hamidullah Yousufzai reacted swiftly to push the ball over the bar.

Shaheen's Samiullah Mohammadi passed the ball to Salim Saifi and he swiftly brought home the second goal for his team at the 68th minute. Not long after, Hashmatullah Barakzai found Reza Allahyari in Toofan's penalty area and passed him the ball to score the third goal for Shaheen at the 70th minute.

Shaheen with a three goal lead finished their second game with a powerful performance and their  man Reza Allahyari brought home Man-of-the-Match for his one assist and one goal during the match.

"We came on the top because we played as a united team with good coordination." Hashmatullah Barakzai said.
