Tomislav Steinbruckner, head coach of Terengganu FC, said the cause of the lack of action of players was a hot weather factor before returning to keep 1 point in the second half of the match.
In the match that ended 2-2, the Turtle squad was first surprised with a goal as early as the sixth minute by Griffin McDaniel and Ngong Stephen in the 40th minute to take a 2-0 lead.
However, at the end of the first half, TFC managed to close the gap through Sony Norde, while the equalizer came again at the end of the second half through Adisak Kraisorn.
“I don’t want to hide the style of the men’s game this evening (yesterday), they did not perform as usual, many technical errors including mistakes when making passes in addition to not having enough movement to create dangerous moves.” Tomi said after match.
“In addition to worrying me at that time was the mistake made by the goalkeeper, Suhaimi Husin who conceded the opponent’s first goal as early as the sixth minute, I wanted a more aggressive style of play at the beginning, but what happened was the opposite.”
“Honestly, of course I am not satisfied with their playing style, I can conclude that the players’ actions were not good, maybe the weather factor in the hot afternoon affected their playing style,”
“What made me happy about that match was that we were able to collect a point at the last minute after trailing by two goals despite the high hopes of all the fans wanting a win, especially at home.
“It was more pleasing in the second half that many opportunities were created compared to the first half, even the players worked hard to win, congratulations to them, but failed to translate into goals, but this is football,”
