Tosi still among S-League's top scorers
Friday, April 18, 2014

DPMM FC striker Rodrigo Tosi is still among the Singapore League's top goal scorers despite not scoring in their 1-0 win over Hougang United FC on Wednesday night.

DPMM FC's top goal scorer has tallied seven goals in eight S-League matches so far and is tied with Miroslav Pejic of the Warriors and Gelson Moura of Hougang.

The 31-year-old Brazilian is not thinking about the number of goals he has scored though, instead insisting it is the performance of the team - who currently top the S-League - that is more important.

"The teamwork is there with the way that we are playing. It is not only about me but Roy (O'Donovan) who has six goals as well," said Tosi in an interview with The Brunei Times before the Hougang match at the Hougang Stadium in Singapore.

"Our confidence is good as we are playing well. We are playing the way we should such as pressing and then going forward to score.

"I just want to keep going.. There is still a long way to go (in the season)

"I'm not going to think about it (number of goals) now but I just want to make sure I keep the momentum," he continued.

Azwan Ali Rahman scored the only goal of the game against Hougang, the midfielder's header helping DPMM FC to their third win on the trot.

There have been questions about Tosi's fitness as he didn't play the full 90 minutes in the past two victories over Young Lions (Singapore national Under-23 football team) and Harimau Muda B (Malaysia national Under-21 football team) due to calf tightness.

However, that has not stopped him from adding to his impressive tally so far in the season.

He notched two goals against the Young Lions before getting substituted in the 76th minute, and also got his name on the scoresheet against Harimau Muda B before making way for Shahrazen Said in the 70th minute.

Tosi feels that he is at 100 per cent now and that the substitutions were necessary to conserve energy.

"I'm feeling good as I underwent therapy twice a day," said Tosi.

"I managed to get some rest in the past two games as I had to make sure not to get injured as well. You are more tired towards the end of games and become more prone to picking up injuries," concluded Tosi.
