Acknowledging Malaysia’s individual skills, Coach Shin Seok Kyo was relieved that they managed to take home three full points from the game, securing third placing on the table for now.
Tai Beng Hai, coach for Malaysia, felt that his boys did an OK job and managed to almost make a come back. However, they were slow to start and practically had to play catch up throughout the match.
Tai said, “We need to change the mindset of the players. The game starts as soon as the whistle is blown.”
As for now, the Malaysians would need to work on their fitness, concentration and possession.
