Read the article below taken from the MHF website.

While we understand some overzealous MHF officials are taking a swipe at this blog for undermining the selection of the team and the lofty target set, they really should work on their ENGLISH.

Read on....

Malaysian Hockey Team has achieved the target set by MHF which was top four (4) finish and today Malaysia beat Japan 3-2 with first half score down 0-2 to Japan. The scorers were Amir Farid with 2 goals and Faisal Saari scored the winner with 5 minutes left to play.

All three Malaysian goals were scored in the second half. With that, we hope Malaysia will be able to beat Japan again on Sunday at least they end their campaign with bronze medal which they have proved all the earlier critics and odds to finish the top four target with a blend of senior and junior players in the team. All three matches played today shall be the repeat for Sunday's classification matches with Pakistan playing India in the Finals; Japan and Malaysia for bronze medal match and China versus Korea for 5&6 placing, We wish the very best to Malaysian team to beat Japan again tomorrow at 3.30pm (Malaysian time) in order to have a podium finish for the event. Last podium finish was last years 2010 Asian Games in November which the team achieved the best ever results i.e. Silver Medal but lost to Pakistan in the finals.
