Fc Rovers 2 – 1 Young Umer Line Lyari
Hunter sports ground
25-10-13
Rovers played the first round of the tournament with an even younger squad that they usually play with. It was also the debut match for Areeb Farhan of Rovers Academy.
Rovers started off the proceedings by keeping possession and creating chances via Umair and Waqar. A chance fell to Irfan Junejo in the opening minutes at the edge of the box but he couldn’t take a shot with his weaker foot. Soon after Waqar Hussain scored a splendid goal from Abdul Rehman’s cross. Another chance came by for Areeb by he couldn’t capitalise on it either. It was 1-0 at the end of the first half.
There was plenty of action at both ends in the second half. Young Umer Line scored an equaliser in the opening minutes of the second half by beating the offside trap and beating the keeper on his near post. Rovers came back into the game when Waqar headed in another goal from a neat cross. The score stood at 2-1 till the final whistle.
Mohsin Jamil, Hammad Riaz, Abdullah, Haris Yusufzai, Areeb Farhan and Bilal Fazal were the youngest players for Rovers on the field. Seems like the Academy is doing wonders for the confidence in their younger lot.
