PETALING JAYA: Former manager of Harimau Malaya, Datuk K. Rajagobal believes that Kim Pan Gon knows what needs to be done to ensure that Malaysia defeats Singapore, this Tuesday, thus securing a ticket to the semi-finals of the AFF Cup 2022.
Football fans in the country can play a role by filling the Bukit Jalil National Stadium to give an additional advantage to the national players who have just suffered a disappointment, losing 3-0 to Vietnam.
Rajagobal said, he has high confidence in the line-up of players owned by Pan Gon to show revival, especially after showing good performances in the opening two matches – defeating Myanmar 1-0 and Laos 5-0.
“Only the coach knows what’s best for his team, meeting Singapore who are the national team’s bitter rivals, the match is expected to be intense.
“But I am confident with the national squad line-up, they are capable of shouldering this heavy task to get victory,” he said Utusan Malaysia.
When asked to comment on the national team’s performance against Vietnam, Rajagobal, who once led Harimau Malaya to lift the 2010 AFF Cup, said the players showed a good game despite losing.
“The players have to forget the match against Vietnam, for me they played well. Now focus on action against Singapore.
“In sports there are winners and losers, so as Malaysians we have to accept, what is important is to support the national squad,” he said.
