A king-sized reputation will count for nothing today when Farooq Saeed runs out with Pakistan A for the season's finale at King's Park this afternoon. For facing the underdogs in the Holland Cup final will be Shaheen, a team packed with national players who carry equally big reputations. 'They are the favourites,' says Hong Kong captain Saeed. 'Of course they are fancied to win as they have a better balanced team than us. But we will give them a game and anything can happen in a Cup final.' Pakistan A are in the final thanks to the brilliance of Saeed and Dubai-import Feroze Khan who teamed up last Sunday to score an improbable 3-2 win over Hong Kong Football Club A in overtime. Saeed conceded his reputation saved the day for him - and for Pakistan A - against Football Club after he had pulled down Chris Marshall on a breakaway early in the second half with the Pakistanis trailing 2-0. The umpire failed to censure Saeed for the professional foul just outside the 23 metre mark and that great escape later spurred Saeed to score the two goals that pushed the game into extra-time. 'I was lucky not to be sent off. My reputation saved me,' smiled Saeed after Khan had scored a sensational golden goal that lifted Pakistan A into today's final. Saeed cannot expect the same treatment today. Not when he comes up against players of the calibre of the Ali brothers, Asghar, Akbar and Ali, captain Swalikh Mohammed and the rest of the Shaheen clan. A big reputation will count for nothing today. 'One man cannot win a game in hockey. It is a team sport,' insists Shaheen fullback Akbar Ali. 'Farooq might score one goal but we can score two. Of course we will have to make sure that we do not concede short corners.' While it is a team game, Shaheen will still have to be on guard for Khan. The exciting forward will be keen to say farewell to Hong Kong on a winning note. It could also be the end of the road for Akbar Ali who says this could be his last game for Shaheen. 'Maybe this is my last match,' said Akbar. 'I want to concentrate on my job. It costs me to play for the club and Hong Kong. There is no challenge left in playing in Hong Kong.' That was hardly the case last week when Shaheen had to pull out all the stops to score a 4-3 win over Valley A in the second semi-final which was also decided in overtime. But as if to prove that they can lift their game when it is called for, Shaheen came from behind on three occasions, and it was left to Akbar to break the final deadlock with the decisive golden goal. Now they expect to win the double. 'Yes, they are expected to win. But we have nothing to lose,' warns Saeed.
