Malaysia through to the final

Malaysia beat Singapore 3-1

Yesterday night we saw Malaysia beat Singapore 3-1 and advanced to the final in 39th Merdeka Tournament. Striker Safee Sali returned into action after he received a red card during the match against Myanmar in earlier group stage but this time he scored two goals to help his team through to the final for the first time after their last appearance in 2000, losing 0-2 to New Zealand. The Malaysia under-23 will face the defending champions Myanmar in the final who advanced with a 3-1 win over Zimbabwe in other semi-final. Mohd Khyril Muhymeen opened accounts in the 14th minute and Safee Sali went on target in the 18th and 76th minutes. The Malaysia supporters will be hoping this time their national team will win this match against Myanmar in order to stop them having 2nd consecutive win in this tournament who they had previously lose to in earlier group stage.



  1. hooray Malaysia won over Singapore. Amazing that Malaysia went into final hehe what a good news.

  2. Yeah, is has been a long time since Malaysia became champions. So is good to be in the final and hope they will win it 🙂
