Elkan did not play fully in the match because it looked injured in the 68th minute. Unbearable and unwilling to take risks, he was replaced by Victor Igbonefo in the 72nd minute.

The door of the Red and White team’s defense was immediately missed 13 minutes later. Omid Popalzay managed to tear Muhammad Riyandi’s net in the 85th minute. He took advantage of the lack of communication between Igbonefo and other colleagues who were in front of the goal mouth.
