The 1-0 win over Vietnam in the Sea Games soccer final

The long awaited win in the Sea Games soccer tournament by the Malaysian U-23 team has given Malaysian soccer a sudden recognition and support.
It was a 20 year-old wait after Malaysia last won the Sea Games in 1989 at the KL Sea Games when Malaysia coached by Englishman, Trevor Hartley beat Singapore 3-1 on that rainy night on Aug 31 at the Merdeka Stadium.

Here view highlights and the "own goal" in Vientiane on Dec 17, 2009, that has earned the Malaysian team all the accolades - courtesy of RTM, Pakcu and YouTube.
