Malaysia win the Merdeka
Malaysia beat Myanmar 3-1 to clinch the Merdeka Games in their 50th year of independence. Given a woeful year football wise where headlines were hogged by the on again, off again tour by Manchester United this victory may shed some light onto a gloomy football scene up there but as Malaysia celebrates it's worth pointing out it was just a friendly tournament. The World Cup Qualifiers are soon and Bahrain will be a tougher nut to crack for the full Malaysian squad.
