Francis Forkey Doe proves vital to Pahang as new signing

The arrival of Francis Forkey Doe just two days prior to this clash proved vital as Pahang broke their duck for 2018 in a convincing 3-0 win over East Coast rivals Kelantan in the Malaysia Super League (MSL) on Saturday.

Doe, who replaced Argentine misfit Sergio Unrein after the latter failed to settle down as quickly as expected, showed he was ready for immediate action with an energetic performance and a debut goal.

The Liberian forward put in a performance that would make you question if he had indeed joined the team a couple of days before.Doe was a thorn to Kelantan’s defence and formed an instant understanding with Sumareh. He squandered a header in the 11th minute but made no mistakes two minutes later.

Pahang had not scored in their opening two league matches, being held 0-0 at home to Perak on the opening day before a 1-0 defeat away to PKNS on Wednesday.

Doe opened the scoring with a header after finding himself unmarked during a Faisal Rosli in-swinging free-kick in the 13th minute. The Liberian combined well with Sumareh, who was at his explosive best all night, to give Kelantan plenty of problems.

Sumareh doubled the score in the 54th minute after applying the finishing touches to a knock down by Alex Moraes. Nor Azam Azih put the icing on the cake in the 88th minute to give Pahang their first win of the season.
