KL hopeful of Sabah date
SABAH girls checked into the final of the National Under-16 Championships in style when they hammered Negri Sembilan 3-0 in Group Y yesterday.
Sabah look set to meet Kuala Lumpur in the decider as the city team lead Group X going into today’s final round of second stage of matches.
Kuala Lumpur have one win, and only need a draw against Penang today to qualify for the final.
“We have a very good side this year, but the players still do not believe in themselves. Even in the win against Selangor (2-0), they initially were afraid of their opponents.
“I have tried to calm their nerves and hopefully, a day’s rest before the Penang game will help our cause,” said KL coach A. Kannagi.
Last year, Kuala Lumpur girls won bronze.
