For their mediocre performances at the Champions Challenge in Johannesburg, the national team was given RM4,500 each recently.

And one can only deduce that MHF is so starved of success that they even pay out healthy sums of money for finishing in a lowly fifth position.

For the bonus scheme is now no longer a motivation factor as proven by rewarding under achievers.

A win is worth RM1,000 and a draw RM500 so rightfully they ought to have been paid RM2,500 in total. But instead Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, against his better judgment opted to pay out another RM2,000 for meeting the target.

So below are the fixtures for the Olympic Qualifiers in Dublin. Only can only say that it is god sent as Malaysia opens out with relatively easy matches before taking on Korea and Ireland in the final two group matches that will decide their fate.
