It's A Repeat Of AFF Cup 2010

Malaysia limped past Myanmar 1-0, Indonesia huffed and puffed before defeating Vietnam 2-0 (Patrick Wanggai, Titus Bonai) so the SEA Games Final in Jakarta tomorrow night is a rerun of last year's AFF Cup Final between Indonesia and Malaysia.

Expect another sell out crowd at the Bung Karno as the ticket prices and rain are doing nothing to dampen Indonesian's enthusiasm for, finally, following a winning team.

But Malaysia? They have grown used to winning. They won the AFF Cup last year at the same venue. Many of their players will have been playing in Slovakia on a regular basis over the last few years. These guys eat hostility for breakfast along with their Frosties.

5 of Malaysia's key players are injured / unavailable for the final match - Syahrul Azwari Ibrahim and Wan Zaharul Nizam ( 2 of the key wingers ).
Izzaq Faris Ramlan ( target man ).
Fandi Othman and Irfan Fazail are still doubtful ( though not as important as the three above, still considered as key players ).
Tough luck for them...
Moreover they still have the important Syria match for Olympic qualification directly after this final match ( will be played this Thursday ), which some deem more important than the sea games match...
kah...kah...kah... for breakfast eh? i like that very much ...
