2015 MSL Team of the Week: Gameweek 10

Local and foreign talent lights up our Team of the Week for Gameweek 10 of the Malaysian Super League!

  • Goalkeeper

Farizal Marlias is the man between the posts after shutting out Felda United to ensure JDT remain undefeated at home.

  • Defenders

Although he was at fault for ATM’s third goal, PDRM defender Afif Amirrudin was the only bright spark in the 3-1 defeat, often pushing up to support the attack, which saw him get a goal to his name.

Obinna Nwaneri's dominating figure was the foundation behind the Gladiators' defence that helped shut out PDRM's attacks.

Zesh Rahman was unable to do anything with the two penalties awarded to Terengganu, but he contributed at the other end of the field as his two goals in the first half were the catalyst for Pahang's 3-2 victory.

  • Midfielders

There is arguably no young footballer in Malaysia whose stock is rising more rapidly than Nurridzuan Abu Hassan. The Perak midfielder unleashed a belting free-kick that had the Selangor goalkeeper well beaten and sealed the 2-1 victory.

A constant livewire in Sarawak's midfield, Joseph Kalang Tie scored the decisive header against Kelantan, giving his side a two-goal cushion before the match finished 3-2 in their favour.

Against Terengganu, Pahang playmaker Hafiz Kamal was up to his usual tricks, demonstrating his set-piece mastery by setting up both Rehman’s goals.

Venice Elphi's late first half equaliser was the spark that led the fightback for ATM as they took down then-league leaders PDRM.

  • Forwards

Patito Rodriguez ushered in his birthday with a merited performance against Felda United, constantly threatening their goal and converting the penalty that was enough for JDT to take the three points.

Mainly deployed as a midfielder nowadays, veteran Hairuddin Omar played as a striker on Saturday and proved that he is still a threat in front of goal. He assisted Elphi’s goal and scored two as ATM completed their comeback victory.

After coming under criticism for his poor form in recent weeks, Sarawak's Ryan Griffiths showed his worth by scoring the first goal and turning provider for the winning goal against Kelantan.
