The live streaming group C match on 16 January 2018. Malaysia vs Saudi Arabia in group C. There will be a tough team to win this match.
Standing group C:
- IRAQ 4 POINTS
- JORDAN 2 POINTS
- SAUDI ARABIA 2 POINTS
- MALAYSIA 1 POINTS
The one point appears a decent result considering the standing of Malaysia’s opponents but there may be a feeling of disappointment that the Young Tigers did not collect all three points after taking the game to Jordan, who finished third in 2013 and reached the quarter-finals in 2016.
Having rued several defensive errors in the 4-1 loss to Iraq in the opening match on Wednesday, it looked like Malaysia had not learned their lesson when they allowed Jordan to take the lead in the 16th minute.
Malaysia play Saudi Arabia in their final group match on Tuesday.
Akhyar Rashid, who otherwise had a terrific match, allowed Ward Al Barri to run free on goal while custodian Hazqi Nadzli, playing a competitive match in national colours since the costly error at the SEA Games final, was beaten to the ball when he rushed out to collect it.
Ong’s men refused to be cowed and took the game to Jordan by playing some very positive football. A defence-splitting through ball from Daniel Amier Norhisham found Akhyar, who won a penalty after being brought down by Saed Al Rosan. Safawi stepped up to score the equalizer minutes before half-time.
Malaysia endured the occasional pressure in the second half but they never stopped looking for the winner, as Akhyar and Matthew Davies hit either side of the post. Malaysia who are currently bottom of the group with one point, play Saudi Arabia in their final group match on Tuesday.
Iraq top the group on three points, with Jordan on two and Saudi Arabia level on points with Malaysia – with the Saudis having a game in hand against Iraq, to be played later in the day.
