Malaysia 1 - 3 (0 - 1)


Korea walked away with a convincing 3-1 win over host nation Malaysia in Sunday’s last match in the Stadium Hockey Wisma Belia. As Korea have a better goal difference than Canada, they are now on top of pool B.

Malaysia were seeking to strike back against Korea today after they lost yesterday’s match against France. As both teams will participate in the Rabobank Hockey World Cup kicking off in The Hague on May 31, this match is an important reckoner for both teams.

Despite having had more ball possession and scoring opportunities, the host nation was one goal behind at halftime. Korea managed to force a penalty corner on 19 minutes and Nam Hyun fired a dragflick past Malaysia’s goalie Kumar Subramiam to give his team the lead. Malaysia created a lot of promising scoring opportunities but they were unable to break down the Korean defence.

The second half started with You Hyo Sik (37’) grabbing an early goal to double Korea’s advantage. Soon after, the leading team forced their second penalty corner which was parried well by Malaysian Sukri Mutalib to keep his team in the contest. However, Korea eventually extended their lead to 3-0 when Jang Jong Hyun scored from their third penalty corner. Despite the disheartening scoreline, the Malaysian supporters kept on singing throughout the match. With one minute remaining Ismail Abu provided the 3-1 consolation goal much to the delight of the crowd.

“We played much better than yesterday but unfortunately we didn’t take the chances we created. Now we hope to beat Canada because otherwise we will play New Zealand in the quarter final and this will be a tough match” said Malaysia coach Muhammad Dhaarmaraj.
