Malaysia 3 Myanmar 1 !! We are the champions !!
I was not there ; among the 40 , 000 Shah Alam crowd to witness our long awaited triumph. ( Wifey was sick , so i had to stay home and take care of my kids...had to decline Dil's offer to the stadium ) but , I was amongst the millions of Malaysians in front of the tele - cheering and jumping up and down during the game.It was full of suspense , drama and full of hope - and when it mattered the most ; our boys delivered.
The footie fans have waited for a long time to celebrate footie success. Though , few would argue it is just a tiny-weenyPestabola Merdeka Cup which has lost its value in the eye of the footballing world , it does not matter. The last time we won the Cup was 14 years back. We should be thankful for the hope that these young boys showed us ; a glimmer of future success.The boys should be proud and walk with pride ; because it did not come in a silver platter. They played hard and deserved it. We beat Singapore and Myanmar ; who had beaten us at ASEAN level for the past 10 years.
Kudos team Malaysia ; Congratulations... It is sweet for Malaysian football in the midst of its darkest hour. We delivered at least something to smile for in the eve of 50 years of MERDEKA !!
