LionsXII into Malaysia Cup semis after 2-0 win over Pahang


The LionsXII are into the semi-finals of the Malaysia Cup after a 2-0 win over Pahang at the Jalan Besar Stadium on Tuesday night.

Trailing 1-2 after the first leg in Kuantan, V. Sundramoorthy's side produced the result they needed to send the majority of the 7,429 fans home happy.

Captain Shahril Ishak scored both goals for the LionsXII, first in the 35th minute to put his side ahead on away goals, and again 10 minutes from time to set up a semi-final with Malaysian Prime League winners ATM FA.

The first leg will be played at the Jalan Besar Stadium this Friday.
