Yogyakarta: Mes Sungun Varzaghan clinched their first AFC Futsal Club Championship title with a 4-2 win over Thai Son Nam in the final on Sunday.
Mes Sungun captain Farhad Fakhim scored two goals in each half and was instrumental in steering Mes Sungun to their maiden title. The Iranian, who had a loan spell with Indonesia's Vamos FC this year, was happy but was quick to point out that the focus now will be to defend the title.
"Winning the championship may be tough, but keeping it is another thing all together. So we have to repeat this. I respect Thai Son Nam, they played very well, they have a good coach who is very tactical and their speed was remarkable. They made it very hard for us today.
"It will be a challenge for us to defend this title. But we are Iranians and who knows," said Fakhim.
