(Start – Sandefjord 0-1) He has struggled with injuries and lack of employer. But in the extremely important bottom match against Start, Harmeet Singh was completely for Sandefjord.
– It was fantastic, and felt very good. I do not really have much else to say. “I’m just trying to be patient, because I know I want my chances,” Singh told Eurosport.
He has not started a football match in the whole of 2020 and has not scored a league goal since April 2018, but against Start at Sør Arena, Singh was exactly where he should be.
Vidar Arí Jonsson’s post from the right was precise, and Singh widened into the 1-0 goal early in the second half.
It was like a pass in goal, sensitive and elegant, with the greatest obviousness – in his first match from the start since May last year.
– You train and work for such moments. I appreciate football in these times, I do not take it for granted, says Singh.
. Singh dominated for Vålerenga at the beginning of his career, but has had a number of years without continuity, without flow.
On Saturday, he secured a vital victory for his new Sandefjord.
But then Sandefjord was lucky which was not already below. Martin Ramsland’s finish from close range was saved by Sandefjord goalkeeper Jacob Storevik by sitting on the ball.
– I have practiced sitting on the ball this week, Storevik jokes.
Espen Børufsen also had a goal canceled, however, the offside was a couple of meters and thus indisputable.
Initially, Start started best, and was close when Christian Bolanos’ full volley went inches outside.
