No AIRMARINE Cup joy for Malaysia

Hosts Malaysia were knocked out of the AIRMARINE Cup 2019 after suffering a 1-0 defeat to Singapore in the semi-finals at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium.

The Harimau Malaya team only had themselves to blame after failing to make the most out of a slew of chances in the second half of the match.

Singapore, despite being on the back on the foot following the interval, got the winning goal in the 82nd minute through former PKNS FC import player, Faris Ramli, who evaded the offside trap and slotted home a cool finish.

In the other semi-final game, Oman thrashed Afghanistan 5-0 courtesy of goals from Ahmed Al-Mahaijri, Raed Ibrahim Saleh, Mohammed Al-Balushi, Abdul Aziz Al-Muqbali and Mussalam Akaak.

Singapore will now face Oman in the final of the AIRMARINE Cup 2019 while Malaysia battle it out with Afghanistan in the 3rd/4th placing match. Both matches are set to be played this Saturday.
