Please allow me to apologize for not continuing the second part of my previous post. I have better thing to share. The second part can wait. This post is dedicated to Malaysian football team for their glorious victory in AFF Suzuki Cup 2010. Malaysian team never get this amount of deposit of trust and support from their own citizen. They don't even bother before. And I was, shamefully, one of them.
After the glorious days of Mokhtar Dahari and his fellow legendary teammates which I honestly don't remember let alone to recognize them, there was no rainbow to carve the sky but darkness prevailed. Before this, Khairul Fahmi was nobody to most Malaysian. His Chinese-look only recognized by the Kelantan FC die hard fans. Today, he is trending worldwide.
AFF Suzuki Cup is obviously no World Cup championship. But, we know our roots, we understand the roof, we swallow our branches, thus, this cup is world cup for ASEAN teams. The Malaysian team crawled slowly without much attention and hype both from the media and local fans. Yet, they managed to kiss that cup successfully.
Indonesian can't accept to be beaten down by the Malaysia team. They overdosed of worshiping of their football team. Their media is not like here. Chanting words of encouragement are 2/3 of the Indonesian media network. In fact, they ridiculously put their team on air with live coverage just showing their team to departure for their flights. Pity.
Well, this victory will obviously a vital turning point to cultivate the spirit and the good environment for football industry right here in Malaysia to flourish and expand to higher level and repeat the history of those glorious days. One more thing, it also shut and seal the mouth of some Malaysian for insulting the Malaysian team. Now, citizen of Malaysia have faith in you. Go and make us proud to be called Malaysian.
Honestly, I'm touched with the victory. It's so sweet! Congratulation Malaysia.
