Maloney’s proud of his boys
Malaysia national Under 18 (U18) head coach Brad Maloney said he is still very proud of his team despite their failure to defend the AFF U18 Championship title following a 1-0 defeat to Australia in the final.
He shared that the squad’s progression to the penultimate match of the tournament highlights their drive to achieve further success and they should be lauded.
“After the draw (group stage) was made, many people thought we were not going to make it past the group stages.
“And having made it that far, I think it’s a remarkable achievement by the players. So I’m extremely proud of them,” said Maloney.
Malaysia were crowned champions of the AFF U18 Championship 2018 after overcoming Myanmar 4-3 in the final.
