Players to Watch: Faiz and Hokky become mainstays against Cheltenham U18

Muhammad Faiz Maulana and Hokky Caraka have a great potential to make the difference when they are played in each half of the match.

#GarudaSelect will again have different formations and lineups of players for each half of the match against Cheltenham Town U18, Friday (9/4) at 17.30 WIB. Technical Director of #GarudaSelect, Dennis Wise, said Muhammad Faiz Maulana and Hokky Caraka have a great potential to make the difference when they are played in each half of the match.


Like in the match again Mansfield Town U18 on April 5, Faiz will be a starter and will play from the first minute. According to Coach Dennis, the speed of the attacker who was born in Bekasi, West Java on July 15, 2004, can always be troublesome for the opponent's defense.


"For the first half, I think Faiz deserves special attention. He will play from the first minute. He is a dangerous player, quick, and with his skills, he can create problems," said Coach Dennis.


Meanwhile, Hokky will again be played in the second half. Coach Dennis believes the tactics and formations that will be applied can make Hokky bring out his best. In the match vs Mansfield U18, Hokky managed to provide one assist for the second #GarudaSelect goal scored by Ridho Syuhada Putra.


"The other player to watch is Hokky. He will play in the second half. We have all seen his abilities. He has speed and strength. With the tactics we have prepared, he will have plenty of room to move. He is the fastest player we ever have and I'm sure he can be a problem for Cheltenham,” Coach Dennis explained.


The match will be the second meeting between #GarudaSelect and Cheltenham U18. In the first meeting last year, #GarudaSelect won by a landslide score of 3-1. The match between #GarudaSelect vs Cheltenham U18 can be watched live on Friday, 9 April 2021 at 17.30 WIB, only on Mola TV.
