The Elusive Gold Medal

Can't wait for the final match tomorrow. Malaysia vs Vietnam. Hope we'll triumph over them.

I think everyone knows that Vietnam is a good team. They did beat us in the group match. But anything is possible right?

As a fan, I do understand that winning and losing is part of the game. But the players too must understand that the fans demand nothing less than an impressive display. We want to see our team to play beautiful and smart football. If we win, it's a bonus, a job well done. If we lose, I reckon the fans will understand.

Moreover, the fans' expectation do not stop here. We want to see the team be elevated to a higher level. World cup would be too far fetched, so take it slow. The Asian Cup for example. Our participation is long overdue. It's a good chance for football to draw the fans back to our empty stadiums.

Don't give us hope. We've had hope inside of us for a very long time. And believe or not, despite the glamor of EPL, we still long for a formidable Malaysian football team. Deep inside our hearts, we want it to happen. So make it happen you guys.

For tomorrow's game, I'd say it's a 50-50 chance. But the voice inside of me is saying that we might be celebrating tomorrow. MIGHT. Hope we will.

I can't wait to see the Jalur Gemilang being hoisted. I can't wait to hear the Negaraku being played in the background. Mannn......that would be so emotionally awesome. And when that time comes, I'd sure be standing up and sing along in my own living room. Hope I wont cry :)

So all the best you guys!! Make us proud ya!
