Saim was quick to react earning a penalty straight from the kick off. However, the nerves got to him, as he kicked it straight into the middle and into the hands of the keeper. Shehryar took full advantage of the situation and exploited Saim’s defence on the counter attack. The counter attack was smoothly finished with another solo goal, making it 2-1 for Shehryar.
The second half began, as Saim looked for a way to equalise. Shehryar managed to contain the pressure, holding on to his lead. But as his team began to tire, Saim managed to equalise through a fantastic piece of teamwork. With the score all squared in the last 10 minutes, the game looked destined to head into extra time. However, Saim had other ideas.
All alone in the final third, Saim had no option but to try the extraordinary. Unleashing a ferocious effort from 30 yards out, Shehryar could do nothing but stare as the ball smashed against the post before rolling into the goal.
While the game was extremely entertaining and even, there could only be one winner. While both players managed to put up a fight, ultimately an absolute stunner sealed the deal, with Saim winning 3-2 against Shehryar.
Congratulations to our winner Saim, our runners up Shehryar, and the second runners up, Nasser Sabbagh.
