Indonesia Spring Surprise Win

Yesterday was another fun filled few hours in the ASEAN Cup in KL. In the first game Indonesia defeated Singapore 1-0 in a result that suprised many but shouldn't have.

For a while now Singapore's issue has been one of consistency. They were impressive putting hosts and champions Malaysia to the sword in the opening game but against Indonesia couldn't find the same fluidity. They had a player red carded and saw Andik Vermansyah score from long range at the end with a speculative free kick.

First half Indonesia were their usual clueless self but second half on came Andik and they started to impose themselves.

After the game Lions coach Raddy Avramovic said that had his team got a penalty he felt they should have got and had Duric's header been a couple of inches lower then Singapore would have won. To which I reply that I had been born with no balls I would not have started this here pile of literary tosh.

Anyway Indonesia had a goal disallowed and if Okta had timed his run better, don't laugh, then blah blah blah.

Second up Malaysia overcame a few scares before defeating Laos 4-1.

1 - Indonesia 2 1 1 0 3-2 4
2 - Singapore 2 1 0 1 3-1 3
3 - Malaysia 2 1 0 1 4-4 3
4 - Laos 2 0 1 1 3-6 1

Saturday sees Malaysia play Indonesia at the Bukit Jalil Stadium while Singapore meet Laos at the Shah Alam in what is likely to be a sparse crowd!
