Yogyakarta: Nafit Al Wasat will face Mes Sungun Varzaghan in the semi-finals of the AFC Futsal Club Championship Indonesia 2018, after needing extra time to defeat a plucky Vamos FC 7-4 in their quarter-final tie on Wednesday.
Despite Vamos being backed by a partisan crowd, it was Nafit who went ahead after just 50 seconds when the home side failed to make a clean clearance in the box to give Hassan Ali Jabbar the opportunity to score the opening goal.
Nafit, who were swift in attack, were also well organised at the back and dealt with every Vamos attack with ease.
Mustafa Bachay Hamzah came close to doubling Nafit’s lead in the fourth minute when his shot hit the post and seconds later, with the goal at his mercy, Farhad Tavakoli Roozbahani squandered the opportunity.
