In the quarter final, the national futsal team will play with the team of Afghanistan
As a result of the group futsal tournament at the V Asian in indoor and martial arts games, the Turkmen team won the quarter final. The results of the match, which is scheduled for September 23, will show whether our team will be able to pretend for the tournament medals. There are all the possibilities for this, because the game demonstrated by the Turkmen futsal players in three matched in the "A" group was tactically well planned, fast and combinational.
The start of the national team of Turkmenistan in the group tournament on September 18 in the match with the team of Hong Kong was victorious. The first goal has already been scored by Serdar Rejepov in the third minute, Vatan Atayev doubled the advantage on the 14th minute, and at the end of this half, Allaberdy Meredov increased the lead with an accurate blow.
At the beginning of the second half, the Hong Kong team, after conducting a series of dangerous attacks, made an attempt to return to the game, but our futsal players scored four more goals within five minutes, which actually decided the outcome of the fight. Only at the end of playing time the team of Hong Kong succeeded in hitting our goal. The score of the match is devastating 7: 1.
Further, the rival of our team was the leader of the group - the Solomon Islands team. Scoring two goals (Rovshan Orazmuhamedov and Serdar Rejepov), our team allowed its opponent in the end of the first half to reduce the score to a minimum. This result lasted for a long time during the second half; however, the continuing attacks of Turkmen futsal players led to two more goals. The player of the opposing team cut the ball into his own goal and almost immediately Maksat Soltanov fixed our advantage. The goal of the Solomon Islands national team at the last minute of the match could not affect the outcome of the game. Victory 4: 2 allowed the team of Turkmenistan to take the first place in the group event.
Already in the third match of the tournament, the national team ahead of schedule guaranteed winning the quarter final, confidently defeating the Chinese Taipei team with a score of 5: 1.
At the end of the group stage, the Turkmen team played with the Vietnamese team, where the opponents' forces were equal. Our team had the ball longer; the Vietnamese futsal players defended themselves reliably and skillfully attacked. Having had with Vietnam team 9 points, our combined team on results of this match has moved to the second line in the group grade
In the quarter final, the team of Turkmenistan will meet with the Afghan national team - the winner of group "B", which plays without defeats.
