QNB Stars League Week 14 — Al Khor 2 Al Kharaitiyat 0
Attacking midfielder Madson played a stellar role as home team Al Khor beat Al Kharaitiyat 2-0 in Week 14 of the QNB Stars League on Saturday.
Ariel Thierry (11th minute) and Madson (15th) scored the early goals.
Cameroonian striker Thierry was on target following a near-perfect cross from Madson, who picked up the ball from the centre and then quickly charged down the left flank before swooping into the Al Kharaitiyat box.
Once inside the box, Madson spotted fellow striker Thierry on the other side of the shooting range and slipped in a neat cross. Thierry, in one motion, flicked the ball past Al Kharaitiyat goalkeeper Ahmed Sofyan who could do little to stop it.
Madson once again impressed with his quick pace while getting into the scoring act himself. He picked up a cross from the centre of the field and charged towards the rival goal. Just a few feet from the box, the stocky Brazilian noticed the goalkeeper had charged out of his position.
He launched a curling shot that sailed above the goalkeeper’s head and into the net in what was a spectacular strike.
Three minutes from the half-time whistle, Madson produced another tearing run, but his shot from inside the Al Kharaitiyat box hit the outside of the net.
The score remained the same in the second half and Al Khor collected three valuable points.
