Although it was just the last match of the competition in the group stage, the atmosphere was very intense as this was a do-or-die mission for our boys in blue. But at the end, defending champions Malaysia booked their place in the semi-finals of the AFF Suzuki Cup and sent Indonesia crashing out of the competition with a 2-0 win over them at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
Now it’s time to face Thailand, and I hope we will do well against them.
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 28 — Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Mustapa Mohamed admitted today that the Thai auto industry had surpassed Malaysia’s despite entering the game at a later stage.
He also urged national carmaker Proton to find a strategic partner without which he said, it would find it “almost impossible” to survive in the global market.
“It is true that Thailand has done better and started later,” he replied at a press conference when asked to compare Malaysia to Thailand.
The time is ripe for a regime change. People First, Performance Now? My arse.
