Well, well, well… Malaysian sports is on FIRE recently.
And now our Harimau Malaya is roaring in victory over Timor Leste, eliminating them with a spectacular aggregate 12-2 score at the 2022 World Cup/Asian Cup first round qualifiers!
The second leg of the qualifiers, which took place at Bukit Jalil National Stadium last night, saw striker Muhammad Shahrel Fikri scoring a hattrick to give Malaysia a 5-1 win.
Last Friday, the ferocious Tigers attacked Timor Leste’s Rising Sun squad to score 7-1 in the first leg. Thus, standing proud with a total of 12-2.
Let’s take a moment to congratulate the Tigers who hit their goals, shall we?
To Corbin Ong Lawrence, Muhammad Shahrel Fikri, Norshahrul Idlan Talaha, Muhammad Safawi Rasid, Mohd Faiz Nasir and Muhammad Akhyar Rashid…
Good job la, guys!
Harimau Malaya, which ranks 168th in the world, will go on to the second round of qualifiers with 39 other top-level Asian teams in September.
Hopefully, our fierce Tigers will be able to continue their superb attacks and secure a spot in the third round of the World Cup qualifiers as well as an instant entry to the Asian Cup.
