After the recent embarrassments of the national football team, in comes at a great relief (and pride) that Malaysia (under-23 team) has reached the final of the Merdeka cup. And they did it in style.
Striker Safee Sali was the hero, helping himself to 2 goals as Malaysia beat perenial arch rivals Singapore 3-1!
Malaysia will play Myanmar in the final, who beat Zimbabwe 3-1 to confirm their place in the final of the championship for the second time in two years. Myanmar is really improving as a football team!
B. Sathianathan and the boys on getting this far!
However, i just hope they DON'T win it. If they do, then everyone will be high on this victory and start imagining that there is no more hard work to do, and Malaysia football will take 2 steps back.
Anybody knows when the final is being played?
P.S I am very dissapointed in both our Football Association of Malaysia and Asian Football Confederation websites. I expected both of these websites to have indepth reports by time i came online today at 9am, but sad to say, the FAM only updated their website about 10.00am and until the time of this posting, the AFC has yet to update their website!
