Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will watch the football match between Malaysia and Singapore with 10,000 people in Kedah on Thursday.
Najib said that while he would have loved to be at the National Stadium cheering for Harimau Malaya, his visit to Kedah had been agreed upon sometime ago.
Najib said this to coach Datuk K. Rajagopal in a telephone conversation before chairing the 1Malaysia online roundtable discussion here on Wednesday.
He said he told Rajagopal that the entire country would be behind him to see Malaysia winning the game.
“I am sorry I can't be there but I will be watching the game with 10,000 people in Kedah. I have changed the function format so that there is big screen so that we can all cheer for you from there,” he told the coach.
