KUALA NERUS, March 12 — Terengganu FC (TFC) head coach Nafuzi Zain remains satisfied with a point gained after a 3-3 draw with Selangor in Super League action at Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium (SSMZA) last night.
He said the fighting spirit and determination shown by all players should be commended especially after coming back from behind 2-3, before equalizing through Lee Tuck’s penalty kick during the injury time.
“I commend the players for playing well and dominated the game from start to finish.
“However, our biggest mistake is to give away easy goals for the opposing team, all three of them came off set pieces,” he told a press conference after TFC match against the Red Giant at SSMZA last night.
Three TFC goals were scored by Lee Tuck, Sanjar Shaakhmedov and Mohammad Rahmat Makasuf while three Selangor goals were contributed by Ifedayo Olusegun, Kyril Muhymeen Zambri and Brendan Gan.

Nafuzi also described the performance of his new import striker Dominique Da Sylva last night as the best compared to two previous games against Perak and Kedah which saw Da Sylva scored four goals for the Turtles squad.
Meanwhile, Selangor coach B. Santhiananthan expressed frustration as his players failed to translate two golden chances into the net to allow the team three full points.
“We should have scored two more goals, but our players seemed tired.
“I applaud Terengganu because they play well and have good ball control, but many weaknesses came off set pieces,” he said.
For the next match, TFC will face Petaling Jaya City FC on March 14 at the Petaling Jaya City Council Stadium while Selangor to face Kedah at Darul Aman Stadium on March 15.
