Malaysia takes ASEAN Suzuki Cup title

Malaysia takes ASEAN Suzuki Cup title

Malaysia has lifted the ASEAN Suzuki Cup for the first time after beating Indonesia 4-2 on aggregate in a final played over two legs.
Though beaten 2-1 at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium on Wednesday, Malaysia's 3-0 victory in the first leg on Sunday was enough to secure the trophy.
However, the Malaysians also needed goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat to save a penalty in the 15th minute to stay on course. Safee Sali put Malaysia ahead in the 54th minute, before goals from Mohammad Nasuha and Muhammad Ridwan earned their side a hollow victory on the night.
It was a sharp contrast to Malaysia's opening match of the tournament, when it was hammered 5-1 by Indonesia in a Group A match.
