Laos Sea Games 2009. Malaysia 3 - Laos 1 (Mens Football Semifinals)

Our national football team managed to book themself a golden ticket to the final of Laos Sea Games. The national Under-23 team, coached by K. Rajagobal defeated Laos 3 goals to 1 in a match just ended merely 15 minutes ago. The game was live telecast on TV2. Thanks.

Host country, Laos coming strong in the game with whole nation behind them. They managed to surpass Asean football giant Indonesia 2-0 in the group stage. Laos came in with full spirit in front of a full house home crowd tonight in Vientiane, National Sports Complex. Though, they managed to cancel the Malaysian's lead to level off the match at 1-1. But it was the Malaysian who seal off the match with two excellent goals. The Malaysian will play against Vietnam in the long awaited final. Vietnam defeated Singapore 4 - 1 in the other semifinals of the night.

The last time Malaysia won gold in the Games was in 1989 in Kuala Lumpur when they beat Singapore 3-1.

"Our soccer doldrums may end soon and a new era dawns if the excellent display by our boys continues" a quote from Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek. Okay, fingers crossed.

Laos must be pretty bad for Malaysia to be able to win 3-1... When it comes to football, Malaysia memang tidak boleh! Hey!!! It's snowing here too! LOL!!!

True. Laos isn't great but Malaysia ain't good either. But it's a big lift for the already flatten Malaysian football scene by qualifying into the final. Kudos anyway from me.

Yeah....we are indeed bringing snow to tropical country !!!
