SKOR.id - Kekalahan Timnas U-23 Indonesia dari Malaysia U-23 pada laga pembuka Grup B Piala AFF U-23 2023 memunculkan satu nama.

Dia adalah Fergus Tierney, pemain yang memborong gol kemenangan Harimau Malaya ke gawang Garuda Muda di Rayong Province Stadium, Jumat (18/8/2023) malam.

Fergus memang sosok pembeda. Baru masuk pada babak kedua, dia langsung menghadirkan perubahan signifikan terhadap permainan Malaysia U-23.

Hasilnya, menit ke-55, Fergus mampu memaksa bek Indonesia U-23, Kadek Arel, untuk melakukan pelanggaran di kotak penalti.

Gelandang 20 tahun itu mengambil sendiri eksekusi dari titik putih dan sukses menyamakan kedudukan 1-1. 

Tak sampai di sana, menit ke-62, dia kembali merobek gawang Indonesia U-23 yang dijaga Ernando Ari. Fergus berada di posisi yang tepat dan menuntaskan kemelut lewat sontekan terarah.

Sempat tertinggal oleh aksi Ramadhan Sananta (29'), Malaysia U-23 berhasil membalikkan keadaan dan akhirnya menang 2-1 berkat hadirnya Fergus Tierney di lapangan.

Performa gemilang Fergus membuahkan predikat man of the match. Selama 45 menit, dia tak cuma melesakkan dua gol, tapi juga 67 persen akurasi tembakan, 63 persen umpan sukses, serta 50 persen menang duel.

Lalu, siapa talenta menjanjikan milik Harimau Malaya ini? Jika dilihat dari wajah dan namanya, Fergus Tierney memang bukan pemain pribumi Malaysia.

Dia lahir di Glasgow, Skotlandia, dan kedua orang tuanya asli dari negara Britania tersebut.

Sang ayah, Martin Tierney, adalah eks-pesepak bola yang pernah bermain untuk klub Malaysia macam PDRM FC dan Penang FC, kini bekerja sebagai pandit di salah satu stasiun televisi negara tersebut. 

Sementara, ibunya, Sharon Tierney, juga merupakan mantan atlet, bahkan pernah masuk tim nasional atletik Skotlandia.

Fergus tumbuh besar di Penang sehingga dirinya kemudian dinaturalisasi oleh federasi sepak bola Malaysia (FAM).

Awalnya, 2018, dia menimba ilmu di Soccer Experience FC dan kerap bertanding dengan akademi terkemuka di dunia. Tim muda Atletico Madrid, Osasuna, Rangers FC, Barcelona, pernah dihadapi Fergus.

Semua pengalaman itu berbuah undangan berlatih dengan klub-klub Eropa, di antaranya Leicester City dan Sunderland.

Namun, pandemi Covid-19, memaksanya menghabiskan waktu di dalam negeri. Fergus Tierney sempat melakoni trial dengan Penang FC, sebelum bergabung dengan Johor Darul Takzim pada 2022.

Pada level internasional, Fergus pertama kali dipanggil ke skuad Malaysia U-23 pada Februari 2023.

Namun, debutnya baru terjadi sebulan kemudian, yakni versus Kamboja di Merlion Cup, dan langsung melesakkan satu gol dalam kemenangan 4-2. Malaysia U-23 akhirnya sukses menjadi juara.

Fergus Tierney juga dipanggil ke SEA Games 2023, dengan total empat penampilan dan sumbangan satu assist. Sayang, Harimau Malaya gugur di fase grup.

Kini, dia diharapkan bisa memotori tim asuhan Elangowan Elavarasan untuk melaju jauh di Piala AFF U-23 2023.
