We beat the host team 3 - 1 in the final. K.Rajagopal's boys played a hard fought match against a solid Laotian team who were backed by almost a full capacity stadium.
The last time Malaysia played in the final was in 2001 when the games were held in Kuala Lumpur and last won the football gold in 1989 also in Kuala Lumpur when the national team was under the guidance of Trevor Hartley.
Malaysia's goals were scored by Baddrol Bakhtiar who scored twice in the 14th and 79th minute. Safiq Rahim scored the final goal in the 85th minute.
Our boys will meet the Vietnam team that had beaten Malaysia in the group stages.
Come on boys! Bring back the goal. Malaysia Boleh!!!!
