Hafiz Nor: I gave my 101 percent
By Deepanraj Ganesan on 21 July 2014
He had been in scintillating form over the last month, but Hafiz Nor rounded off those performances with a sublime strike in the last match. Latching on to a clearance from Joaquin Lopez, Hafiz used his pace to perfection before outmuscling a Albirex defender. What happened next, was a Hafiz Nor special.
With a swing of his right foot, Hafiz lifted the ball over the goalkeeper to score a wonder strike from 30 yards out.
Eagles TV caught up with the player after the match. Looking worn out from his exertions, Hafiz was quick to mention the work of his coach. He said: “Well. I gave my 101 percent for the match and played to the coach’s instructions.”
He continued: “I told you that we would make it (to the semi-finals) and we did!”
Geylang will next take on league leaders Brunei DPMM but Hafiz was sure of his side’s route to victory. He said: “We have to take a good rest but with the work rate we showed today against Albirex, hopefully we can win Brunei.”
