MALAYSIA dished out yet another strong performance and were crowned champions of the Asean Football Federation (AFF) championship at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta last night.

They were beaten 1-2 by Indonesia in the second-leg final match but a 3-0 victory in the first-leg encounter at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on Wednesday proved to be enough for them, claiming the Suzuki Cup 4-2 on aggregate.

It was the first time Malaysia won the AFF championship title since the biennial tournament was introduced in 1996.

Malaysia played against a desperate Indonesia last night in front of 95,000 spectators.

And they made it more difficult for Indonesia to save the tie with a specatacular goal by Mohd Safee Sali in the 53rd minute. Safee, who scored a brace in the first leg, took his tally five goals and won the Golden Boot.

Muhammad Nasuha equalised in the 71st minute and Malaysian centreback Mohd Muslim Ahmad nodded in an own goal to give Indonesia victory on the night.

The young Malaysian side kept their composure and showed great determination to emerge as the champions.

Indonesia were without their inspirational flanker Okto Maniani, who was out on suspension, while striker Yongky Ari Bowo was not in the starting list due to injury.

Their replacements were Arif Suyono and Irfan Bachdim.

As expected, Indonesia, who had beaten Malaysia 5-1 in the opening Group A match at the same venue, came charging from the first whistle. But the Malaysian defence, marshalled by Mohd Muslim Ahmad and Mohd Fadhli Shas, did well to keep a tight leash on the two Indonesian dangermen Christian Gonzales and Irfan Bachdim.

Indonesia won a penalty when Mohd Sabree Abu handled the ball in the 15th minute. But much to their disappointment, skipper Firman Utina’s tame shot was easily saved goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat.

The Indonesians, desperate for an early goal, kept on pressing but Khairul stood out, warding off at least five attempts from them before the teams went for the break.

Malaysia looked dangerous on the counter attack. Against the run of play Mohd Ashaari Shamsuddin sent a long through ball for Safee to chase and the Selangor hitman finished off clinically put Malaysia in front in the 54th minute.

Indonesia now needed five goals to beat Malaysia and they had to take desperate measures and introduced their aging star, Bambang Pamungkas, for Irfan Bachdim at the hour mark.

Despite a goal down, Indonesia never gave up and their persistence paid off when defender Mohd Nasuha hit home the rebound off a save by goalkeeper Khairul in the 72nd minute.

Then with the clock ticking away, Mohd Muslim handed them a goal off a goalmouth melee in the 87th minute.

Later Wednesday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak declared Friday, Dec 31, a public holiday in recognition of our team's AFF-Suzuki Cup triumph

AFF Suzuki Cup Final : Malaysia vs Indonesia - First Leg

Malaysia trashed Indonesia 3-0 in the first leg of AFF Suzuki Cup final @ Stadium Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. It was a great match with high and low feeling.

Mohd Safee Sali scored the opening goal after a great move & saved by fellow teammate, Norsharul Idlan Talaha.. He stole the ball from Mohammad Nasuha from the right and burst into the box from the byline before finding Mohd Safee Sali with an open chance to score at 60th minute. At 67th minute, Norsharul did the same effort to pave the way for substitution Mohd Ashaari Shamsuddin to score the second goal. Safee scored the third goal for Malaysia, nodding in a cross from Mahali Jasul at 73th minute.

In the middle of the game, there is disturbing behavior from the fans and the game had to be stopped for 10 min. The Indonesian player complained that the local fans dazzling the laser beams at them. The management had to seek help from both police & security force to calm down the fans before proceeding the game.

K. Rajagopal, the coach, said that the boys did their jobs well after the breather. Malaysia will face Indonesia in 2nd leg at Indonesia home ground at Wednesday and hopefully they can hold the game and win the AFF Suzuki Cup.

She Said...


已經過了六年, 她还是没有设么变.
还是一样那么的瘦, 那么的美, 只是样子看起来很累.

我们在附近的 mamak 坐下.
我们坐下已经有一分钟, 但两人都是静静的不说话.



过了一个小时后,话题多开始少了, 我都是在听多过讲.

突然,她说了我们在一起的时,真的很快乐, 很有幸福的感觉.
我听到了她说这句话, 脑里一片空白.
不知道该说设么. 她看着我的时候,她的眼神突然变了.



我已经伤了她的心, 这句话会让她更加伤心.

后来, 想了又想,不说多说了.
希望她可以醒来, 别再活在过去.
这六年来, 她没有再谈恋爱.

我知道我好残忍, 说分就分.

自能藏在心里, 只是我知, 她爸爸知和天知.

所以我只能一个人受苦, 在心里祝福她可以找到她的幸福.
米歇尔, 对不起 !
