Malaysia have an opening to book a spot in the final of the Olympic Qualifiers after Korea nad Ireland played to a 1-1 draw this evening.

A win over Korea this Thursday will out Malaysia in the drivers seat and render their match against Ireland be less pressure for Malaysia.

But a defeat will mean that Malaysia will have to beat Ireland in the final match.A draw against Korea too will be  a good result as it will mean Korea would have dropped four points while Malaysia and Ireland two each.

Ireland took the lead in the 27th minute when David Aimes converted a penalty corner but Korea were on level terms in the 44th minute through Nam Hyun Woo.

As coach Tai Beng Hai and manager George Koshy state above, it will all be left for our team to determine their fate, win both and we are safely through to the final.
