Malaysia to go all out to beat Indonesia in SEA Games

Malaysian Under-23 squad coach Ong Kim  Swee has told his boys to go all out against Indonesia in their final Group A match tomorrow.

Malaysia are in second spot in the group with seven points, two points adrift of the hosts.

Malaysia practically "have half a leg" in the semis with a victory, draw or even a loss by a narrow margin assuring them a ticket to the last four when they take on the Indonesians at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Senayan here at 7pm (local time) tomorrow.

However, for Kim Swee, he does not want to settle for anything less than a huge victory over the arch rivals.

Only Singapore can derail Malaysia's plans, that is if the neighbours can secure a big victory over former powerhouse Thailand.

Thailand, eight times SEA Games football champions, are out of the running after only managing a single win and losing twice in the group stage.

Kim Swee also told his charges to be prepared for a hostile reception from the home crowd tomorrow as the Indonesians are noted for giving their guests a hard time.

"The time has come.. we must show what we are made of," the 41-year-old coach told Bernama before the squad underwent its final training session ahead of the derby, today.
