WAPDA romp to their third straight win in PPFL

By our correspondent

MULTAN: Ahmad Faheem’s double enabled former four-time champions WAPDA to record their third successive win when they defeated Navy 2-0 in their fourth round fixture of the 13th Pakistan Premier Football League (PPFL) at Qasim Bagh Stadium in Multan on Thursday night.

WAPDA opened the scoring in the 39th minute through Ahmed Faheem. And at half time WAPDA were leading 1-0. In the second half a composed game was witnessed. It was again Faheem who converted a penalty in the 86th minute to make it 2-0.

WAPDA head coach Tanvir Ahmed was happy with the outcome. “Its good to record third straight win,” Tanvir said. “We won initial two games against tough teams of SSGC and PAF and that helped us a lot as the morale of the players are now very high,” said Tanvir, also a former international defender.

“You know I am working on rotation. We have mostly young lot and I try to rotate the players in every game and plan according to the strength and so far its working,” Tanvir said. “Our DG sports had faith in me and given me full authority to build a young lot and the results so far are encouraging,” the coach said.

But still nothing can be said as it’s just the start. “But it’s a long season and nothing can be seen at this stage. Yes, if we are able to finish the Multan round on high note then certainly it will help us in the next rounds where we will have enough time to achieve our target and will be able to think and plan accordingly,” Tanvir said. The win took WAPDA to nine points at the summit.
