it was a great night because our malaysian youngsters showed some spunk on the field and delivered a performance they, and every malaysian, should be proud of. it was especially moving to see pretty much everyone around me stand up and cheer and dance like crazy when our no.17 twice took advantage of united’s daydreaming goalies to guide the ball home. it was nice to hear my cousin mutter “oh come on just 15 more minutes and we’ll draw! come on come on hang in there…” under his breath during the second half. it was quite pleasant to see michael owen receive so much love from malaysian fans despite the skepticism surrounding his arrival at united. good to see united players applauding farizal on his saves.
it was a great night!
