Bahrain stormed back from two goals behind to score three goal in 10 minutes to seal victory over Malaysia in Olympic qualifying at Bukit Jalil Stadium last night. Both team needed a win to salvage hope in advancing to the next round.
With both team pointless it was a game for pride especially for Malaysia young side. The young tiger ranked outsider in this group so the a point against team from the gulf would mean a lot. After winning the Sea Games gold medal this is the true arena to test the squad. And they did give the best and played the best game. They not intimidated by size of the opponents, tactical superior and pacey forwards. The played their own game. Their passing and ball controlling were good. They had their time.
Bravo Harimau Muda. This squad is for the future and current. The face of Malaysia that once again dominated South East Asia and eventually Asia.
