Guest pass thanks to Mack
So I went to the Bukit Jalil Stadium the grand match MyTeam vs Malaysia (well, the under 20s) thanks to Mack’s invitation. As many of you would have known by now, the final score was 2-1 with Malaysia edging over Shebby’s bunch of hopefuls.
MyTeam lads put up a show
Reaching Bukit Jalil at 15 minutes before kickoff was a mistake. We had not anticipated the huge turn up for the game. Took us some half an hour to finally get into the parking lot after having misdirected by the clueless traffic controllers. We got to the stand just right after MyTeam scored the opening goal.
2 of the 50,000 strong crowds, no prize guessing who they are
After half time, Malaysia leveled with some really poor goal keeping on MyTeam’s part with a less than impressive free kick. 10 minutes later, Malaysia U-20 boys scored on another slightly more impressive free kick to take the lead for good. MyTeam did try to fight back and came close to even the score on 92nd minute but the ball hit the post. The crowd would have gone absolutely wild had the ball went in.
That’s Pak Lah’s booth
MyTeam, while playing with lots of heart, ultimately lack the few important ingredients that might have help change the outcome. The teamplay and player fitness was poor due to the relative short time since they team was formed, and the lack of big game experience. However, Shebby’s boys did well and deserve some respect.
