Tahir Region Atfal IFL Team 2-1 Victory Againts Middlesex Region

­­­­­On Saturday, 14 January 2012, Atfal of Tahir Region took part in their first IFL (Inter-qiadat Football League) Atfal football league match against Middlesex.

The event started with the league’s opening session led by Mohtamin Atfal, Nasir Khwaja Sahib, and Ghalib Lone Sahib, National Secreatary, Sehat-e-Jismani.

The team got off to a slow start, but was then awarded a penalty due to a Middlesex player going into the area; Sharjeel Ahmad smashed the ball into the bottom right corner of the goal to give Tahir Region a 1-0 lead over Middlesex. Shortly after Tahir Region conceded a penalty for entering into their goal area as well. After half-time, Kamal Abro was brought on for Meshan Khan. Kamal went on to impact the game straight away and assisted a goal to Sharjeel Ahmad which put Tahir Region 2-1 up. In order to retain this lead a fresh player in the form of Haaris Ibrahim was brought on for Usama Niazi who suffered a minor injury.

Tahir Region went on to win the game 2-1. The game concluded with the Atfal shaking hands with the opposition.

Man of the match went to Kamal Abro for the impact he had on the team and the game when he was brought on.  And Danyal Khan is not to go without mention for some spectacular clearances of the ball.
