2 goals in early minutes of second half from City defender Phuntsho Jigme and Captain Tshering Dorji gives THIMPHU CITY FC the 3 crucial points for their first away game of the season today at UGYEN ACADEMY ground.
The visitors THIMPHU CITY FC had total control in case of ball possession but the heat of Punakha had a troll on their performance so did the natural ground. It was vivid that the venue was out of their comfort as they missed all the glorious chances against the young team of Punakha, GOMO FC. On the other hand, as the hosts mentioned in the pre-match press conference, they parked their bus and cleared off almost all the attempts from the away team.
However, within 10 minutes from the restart defender Phuntsho Jigme put the Reds ahead with a glancing header with an awesome free kick from the long range star Dawa Tshering and at 62 minutes came a powerful blast from captain Tshering Dorji doubling their lead. Despite all their trying, the home team couldn’t find the net and had to face an extreme pressure from the visitors until the very last moment, having to end the game in 0-2 by the full time.
For the next match we will have TENSUNG FC vs HIGH QUALITY UNITED FC on 4th August at Changlingmithang.
