English midfielder Lee Andrew Tuck netted another sensational hat-trick as Terengganu FC set up a final clash with host Chittagong Abahani Limited after beating Mohun Bagan AC 4-2 in the second semi-final of the Sheikh Kamal International Club Cup at MA Aziz Stadium in the port city Tuesday. 

The final will be held Thursday at the same venue.

Tuck’s first two goals, both from free-kicks, as well as Terengganu’s lead, were cancelled by Spanish midfielder Francisco Javier Gonzalez Munoz on each occasion, before the Englishman got his second straight hat-trick to become the tournament’s top-scorer with six goals, and seal victory.

It was almost an even affair with Terengganu players showing their technical skills against a more physical Bagan side, who created more chances before the opening goal.

Tuck gave the Malaysian outfit the breakthrough in the 39th minute, finding a hole in the defence wall to hit the back of the net from a free-kick 20 yards out.

Munoz equalized two minutes into the second half, converting a penalty after Mohammad Alias fouled Britto Mettilda inside the danger zone.

Tuck scored another spectacular goal from a free-kick in the 59th minute with a bullet right-footer from around 30 yards out that sneaked home through the top right corner.

Munoz brought parity again two minutes later, heading into the near post following a free-kick by Joseba Beitia from the right side. 

Winger Syafik bin Ismail gave Terengganu the lead again in the 74th minute placing home with an angular shot after dodging past Lalram Chullova into the left side of the box.

Tuck completed his treble from a penalty five minutes later after Bagan goalkeeper Debjit Majumder brought down Bruno inside the box.
