score-temp-MITTI

After 5 long years, Millat Star FC Orangi Town reopened their ground for football lovers, which was closed due to intense situation of Karachi. Many sponsors & locals were targeted by the Mafia due to which the Rehman Baba Stadium was closed for many years for all sports. In 2010 Rovers last played there semifinal in this ground, the organisers decided to start a new event in order to finish their pervious tournament. Final will be played on 13th July between FC Rovers & Al-Madni Shebaz.

As finalist of last tournament Rovers were invited for new tournament which they faced Khyber Muslim FC & lost 1-0.

It was again disappointment not to see full strength of Rovers as main players were on educational & family duties. As it is Examination time for most of the Colleges & Universities. Rovers out classed by Khyber Muslim. As the match started Rovers were on the defensive & held the ball. Harris & Hayyan both broke through the defence of Khyber Muslim but couldn’t create a clear chance. Khyber Muslim pressed on & created 2 great chances but Habeel saved Rovers from early goal. Both teams slowed down the pace of the game as it was a very hot day & players were tired.

However in 2nd half Khyber Muslim made 2 substitutions & went on attack mode with 3 strikers. Rovers were pushed to the edge of the D area as Khyber Muslim took their time and kept possession to create two one on one situations but missed. Rovers also played counter attacking strategy but couldn’t make clear chances. In dying minutes of the match Khyber Muslim got their winning goal which ended the game for Rovers & Rovers lost 1-0.

Talha Ahmed made his debut for Rovers, who had a great game. Hashir Sohail, another promoted players from Academy had a very bad day on the pitch.
