Following the 2018 Rahmani Foundation Afghan Premier League (RFAPL) first week, Toofan Harirod battled De Maiwand Atalan in the Afghanistan Football Federation (AFF) stadium, today October 12, 2018 at 6:00 PM. This was the sixth group stage match.
Maiwand Atalan kicked off the game with quite high self-confidence, but the initial reasonable strikes of the match were situated by the men in blue, threatening their opponents goal to the good possible extent and their efforts paid off right in the 18th minute of the game, Yaar Mohammad Zakarkhail opened Atalan’s door and took the 1- 0 lead for his team.
Almost ten minutes after the first goal, Rauf Qaderi got the pass from half the ground and took it all the way straight to the goal at 29th minute of the game, making the task way harder for De Maiwand Atalan’s team. Toofan kept dominating the ground for all the rest of pending minutes through the first 45 minutes.
The first half ended with 2-0 result for Toofan Harirod.
Even-tempered with its lead, Toofan started the second half with more attacks, taking benefits from the counter attacks as well as appropriately intercepting Atalan’s passes.
It seemed that the players in this game were men in blue as they were quite efficient in their own ground with their defense line and also powerful on the ground of their rivals. Rahmatullah Khair Khwa scored the 3rd goal at the 74th minute of the game. The players of De Maiwand Atalan; on the other hand, got scattered after this goal.
Finally, Toofan Harirod cruised 3 - 0 over De Maiwand Atalan with 60% match possession accumulating 3 more points. Rauf Qaderi with one goal scored and great performance all around the field was awarded as the Man of Match.
