KUALA LUMPUR: Mohd Ramadan Rosli is not disappointed for being left out of the national hockey team for next month’s Incheon Asian Games in South Korea.
Instead, the 23-year-old is having fun scoring goals for Kuala Lumpur in the Razak Cup tournament at the Kuantan Hockey Stadium. He is the top scorer in Division One with five goals in three matches.
Ramadan, who featured in the recent Glasgow Commonwealth Games, wants to continue his scoring act to help KL beat hosts Pahang in today’s semi-finals.
“I am more than pleased with my performance in the tournament. I want to help KL reach the final as well as win the top scorer award,” said Ramadan, who is featuring in his fourth Razak Cup.
Ramadan, who has 23 international caps under his belt, believes KL have the edge although Pahang have homeground advantage.
“We have a solid team. We can also rely on former international Mohd Amin (Rahim) for goals from penalty corners. On top of that, we have other experienced forwards like S. Selvaraju and Mohd Shamin (Yusoff),” said Ramadan.
Defending champions Perak will face Malacca in the other semi-final.
