Alas, Malaysian football has something to cheer about. I admit not to being the biggest fan of our country’s football but I am still a Malaysian. After being in the doldrums for so many years, perhaps this win will spur our national team to greater heights.
I sincerely hope we will not rest on our laurels else it will be just another flash in the pan and we remain as “Jaguh kampung or Asean” only.
I was catching the midnight news and was surprised (or should have expected) to hear Friday declared a public holiday in response to the win.
Mmm…I do not wish to sound critical but does this win warrant a national holiday? What if our national team wins the World Cup? Maybe Malaysians will be tax exempted for 1 year ? :p
Anyway, Congratulations to our boys. You did us proud. Let’s have more celebrations in the coming years…
