Match Report: HGFC vs ANFC

Facing the league leaders in home soil, the home side could have thrown a spanner in Albirex’s works when they led at the break through Kishson’s close-range shot, which creeped inside Takahiro Koga’s near post.

However, the White Swans showed their class in the second half to turn things around. Former Japan youth international Kondo clipped a deft finish past Izwan Mahbud, before substitute Tezuka produced a stupendous chip that went in off the bar to maintain the champions’ unbeaten start to the season.
