Congratulations to the Malaysia Super League Champion - Selangor. I would really like the title challenge last until the last day of the league match, but Selangor prove they are far more superior against Kelantan. Hat off to Kelantan who controversial promoted to Super League this season to finish off in second place.
As like what you read in the local newspaper today, new FAM elected for the new term until 2014. With only the president Sultan Ahmad Shah who have no one dare to challenge his stronghold and Dato Affandi Hamzah as FAM vice president remained from last term.
Below are the new line up
If there is only one word to describe Harimau Muda performance against South Korea 2012 Olympic Squad, i would say wow! K. Rajagopal is the man. Prospect of our national team looks better under you Mr. Raja.
Our young lads definetely can play football. We minimized basic football error and have no fear against South Korea. Good Job. I hailed K. Rajagopal as the master of tactician. I really support his decision two have Amar Rohidan and Safiq Rahim playing as defensive midfielders and try to penetrate Southe Korea defender through pacey S. Kunalan and skillful Ahmad Fakri Saarani.
A win is a win and i hope our supporters did not complaint about this is just South Korea 2012 Olympic squad. Nothing to brag. We should see the South Korea Olympic squad is the future as South Korea national squad. Yes they are young lads and still learning. Same goes to our under 23 squad which is still young and having at least five players coming from Malaysia under 21 squad which are Gary Steven Robbat, Muslim Ahmad, Shakir Ali, K. Gurusamy, and K. Sasikumar.
I really happy K. Rajagopal to look for the future of our national team by not listing the experience Norhafiz Zamani, Safee Sali, Indra Putra or Amri Yahyah. And we proved last night our defensive can be build around the strength of Harimau Muda Skipper, Aidil Zafuan. He is the second best player on the pitch after the tenacious Safiq Rahim. Aidil form a good partnership with Nasriq Baharom, but to be frank i rate Muslim Ahmad is the best partner for Aidil.
We can applause the defensive department as the strength of Harimau Muda. Sabree Abu proven to be the utility man for Malaysia playing on the right side, and Asrarruddin is decent enough on the left. Asrarrudin should be thankful for Kunalan who is helping him defending. I wouldnt mind swapping Asrarrudin with Azmi Muslim who is a bit pacey compare to Asrarrudin. But credits goes to all of them for the last night match. The thing Mr. Raja need to improve is our aerial defending. We could see how most of the time South Korea winning the aerial challenge.
Safiq Rahim was on top of his game last night and i hope he can remain consistent when donning our national jersey. He and Amar Rohidan very well discipline providing good coverage in front of our back four. However, K. Rajagopal should keep note on Bunyamin Omar capabilities who is robust in defensive by giving him opportunities in the future. Last night, Amar Rohidan and Shafiq Rahim didn't provide enough challenge to win the ball in the air against South Korea midfielder and i trust Bunyamin Omar as the answer of this weaknesses.
In the first half, a thumb up for Ahmad Fakri who is not afraid to nutmeg the South Korea defender using his skills and strength. The only thing he need to improve is his crossing. I dont see he able to cross the ball correctly to our striker. May be he used to get the ball instead of delivering the ball in Malaysia League.
Harimau Muda deserve a pat on their back but again lot of thing we need to work on. I am looking forward for a positive result in Asia Cup and World Cup qualifiers.
