FA Cup: Saddil Ramdani's extra-time goal sends Sabah FC into quarter-finals

14/05/2022 12:17 AM

KOTA KINABALU, May 13 (Bernama) -- An extra-time goal by imported Indonesian winger Saddil Ramdani gave Sabah FC a 2-1 win over Kelantan United FC here tonight and made the former the first team to qualify for the FA Cup quarter-finals.

In the match at Stadium Likas, Premier League team Kelantan United managed to match Super League outfit Sabah, with both teams wasting many scoring opportunities.

Sabah took the lead in the 41st minute when imported Japanese striker Taiki Kagayama pounced on a loose ball to score after Kelantan United goalkeeper Mohammad Fikri Che Soh failed to catch clean an attempt by midfielder Stuart Wilkin.

Kelantan United stepped up their attack in the second half and finally drew level in the  67th minute when Nigerian striker Njoku Jacob outfoxed three Sabah defenders to drive in a shot from outside the penalty box.

The match went into extra-time after the score was tied 1-1 at the end of regulation time.

Saddil turned hero for The Rhinos when he evaded two Kelantan United defenders to score the winner with a powerful drive in the 111th minute.

Kelantan United continued to press forward in search of a goal but were foiled by an in-form Sabah goalkeeper Damien Lim.
