Sub par performance by New Radiant but still we won. What a farewell this has been for Dhagey. He will be missed but I wish him the best. May many more of our player follow him to foreign leagues.

Dhangandey? JUST DHAGANDEY? Have you seen how Yusif played? How Umair played? Did you even watch the match? (No offence to dhagandey. He is the best player this country has ever seen, and will be for quite some time)
