08.12.17 Youth KO: Patient Swieqi advance to last 16
It took grit, patience and determination to see off a stubborn Fgura United side at the Mosta Stadium.
With Fgura hell bent on defending and frustrating Swieqi, the Blues found the Fgura rearguard very hard to breakdown. The best chance in the first half fell to Jake Scerri, whose shot went agonisingly wide of the post.
In the second half, Swieqi United continued to create chance after chance but could not find the back of the net. Thankfully, after 79 minutes, Isah Doma Yusuf's powerful shot from inside the box put Swieqi in the lead and Tejumola Ayorinde made sure of proceedings deep into stoppage time when a quick counter attack found the Nigerian all alone to stroke the ball into the empty net.
Swieqi now advance to the Round of 16 where they will face a tough challenge in the form of Gzira United.
