Gambian winger Mohamadou ‘Muhammed’ Sumareh was Pahang FA’s hero as he scored against Johor Darul Ta’zim JDT to take the visitors through to the semifinals of the Malaysia FA Cup.

JDT, defending champions of the Cup, were on the cusp of a place in the last four on Sunday night as they held a 2-0 lead with only three minutes to go before Sumareh shocked the hosts four minutes from the end in front of 23,420 fans as he nodded home a cross to send the visitors through.

The Gambian’s goal was his fifth of the season in less than 15 matches since moving to Pahang in January.
