What did you think of the game today against Pakistan and how do you think the team could’ve done better?

I think it was a very physical match. We made it hard for ourselves in the first two periods when we failed to convert our shots. As the game prolonged, we felt more of the pressure, so it was good to hit 3 goals in the 3rd period.

I think today we could have increased the tempo of the game by moving the ball around them more, and taking more shots at their goal.


In the second period, Pakistan scored an equaliser, what was going through your mind then?

I felt we needed to react positively and we had to react fast. I felt partly at fault for the goal, losing the ball in the middle, so I was extra determined for the team to get the goals back.


What are your thoughts on your upcoming game against Thailand?

It will be a different game that’s for sure.. Thailand will be much more technical, but they have many new faces, many new debutants as well so it will be interesting to see how they do for the first time without their European based players.

What do you have to say to those back home supporting Team Malaysia?

Keep the support coming from back home, be positive, supportive. It means a lot to the boys here, so continue watching the matches live and stand behind the team as we continue our AOFC campaign here in Manila.
