Match Day: Malaysia vs Uzbekistan

Another embarrassing result for the Malaysia national football team on Saturday when they were trashed 5-0 by Uzbekistan at Bukit Jalil. The match played pretty much the same compare to the opening match against China. Some changes had been made in the squad but the result remains the same. Only 5 thousand supporters turn up for this match compare to 20 thousand on the opening night. The Malaysia supporters still remain in optimistic and confident, still believing the Malaysia team will get some result from this match. I was one of them believing and trying to be positive before the match started. I know is going to be a tough and physical game for the Malaysia but somehow I refuse to give up and continue to show my support.

14 July 2007

Five thousand supporters enjoying the festival just outside the national stadium before the game started. Family, friends and fans gathered around to have some fun.

Some Malaysia supporters showing off their skill in a penalty game presented by ING and maybe some of them should be in the Malaysia team.

Samsung penalty

Much different penalty game compare to the first one. I think this is much harder and some accuracy skill is needed. There are prizes to be won and I think mostly are Samsung product, maybe Samsung mobile phone.

Asian Cup

Supporters wander around and trying to enjoy themselves during a beautiful evening at Bukit Jalil.

FAM

After wandering around, I came across a group of supporters voicing up their feeling towards FAM by displaying a big banner in front of the ticket counter. Some media press came by to take some pictures and interviewed them. I think is good for the Malaysian to express out their dissatisfactions about the management after an embarrassing performance against the China.

“We don’t want to be humiliated day by day,” this is what our Malaysia coach, Norizan Bakar told the press before the match. But in the end, the result remains the same and Malaysia is out from the competition. After the second defeat by Uzbekistan, Norizan Bakar has finally conceded that Malaysia do not have the quality to compete in the Asian Cup.

Warming up

Nice weather in Bukit Jalil and both teams warming up in preparation for the match Malaysia against Uzbekistan.

Uzbekistan

A group of friendly Uzbekistan supporters showed up and enjoyed the whole evening very much. One of them even shouted “I love Malaysia!” few times before the match started.

Some actions during the match, too bad my camera wasn’t with me so I have to use my camera phone to capture these pictures.

AFC Asian Cup

After beaten 5-0 by Uzbekistan, the Asian Cup is pretty much over for the Malaysia. They are now out of the competition with still left 1 game remaining in the group stage. I can’t say that the Malaysia didn’t play without any effort. They tried to attack in few occasionally but the defense was just too sloppy. Nothing much to say now, just hoping that the FAM will do something about it and try to improve the Malaysia football quality in near future.

  1. Let’s wait a few more years for FAM to do something, in the meantime, let’s just watch other team playing.. it’s much more entertaining, and not so suffering..

  2. Yeah, I hope so. I think after Asian Cup, the FAM will do a lot of changes to Malaysia football. Although Malaysia is out from the competition but there are still many exciting matches to be watch. Japan vs Aus !! and the one at Bukit Jalil, Iran vs Korea.
