The dual support of Makhbout and Fabio de Lima means that Malaysia’s hopes of regaining qualifications in a positive way have vanished.
Entering the 2022 World Cup / 2023 Asian Cup qualifier against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a difficult task, so it turns out that Malaysia lost for the third time in Group G after promising so much, but in the end it barely provided Any suggestions have different results from other camps.
The home team’s complete control of the game at Zabeel Stadium does not indicate that the game against Vietnam and Thailand is yet to be played.The sluggish performance of the midfield that was unable to play a role made the UAE team feel very comfortable throughout the game, and now they seem to be killed
Tan Cheng Hoe chose Dion Cools and Aidil Zafuan to make their debut in the defensive core of Malaysia, while Liridon Krasniqi and Guilherme de Paula will also make their debut in the national team game. At the same time, Bert van Marwijk only chose Fabio de Lima from his three naturalization options.
From the first whistle, the UAE has dominated, but it did not cause much trouble to Malaysia’s defense. But this is a false sense of security, because Van Marwijk’s team chose their time to unlock their opponents.
As early as the 7th minute, Krasnic’s loose pass led to the first game of the game. Khalil Ibrahim overwhelmed the goal, but Farizal Marias (Farizal Marlias) played in the duel and blocked the corner kick. At the start of the game, Malaysia’s defense line looked increasingly uncertain, and the UAE took this opportunity to break the deadlock. Abdella Ramadan gained time and space in the 19th minute, passing the long pass to Ali Makhbout.
Aidil failed to track Mahbut’s movement. The UAE record scorer cleverly passed the ball to the advancing Farizal, giving the home team the lead they deserved. This is what they did to the game. control. The direct vertical race in the UAE has caused many problems for Malaysia. Neither Aidil nor Cools turned to runners who surpassed them, nor did they put pressure on the likes of Ramadan and Ali Hassan.
Malaysia has improved after the cocktail break. Nor Azam Azih and Syamer Kutty Abba switched roles. The Tigers suddenly took the front foot, operated more in the opponent’s half, and usually touched the ball more than the first 25 minutes.
The first obvious opportunity created by the visiting team came in the 43rd minute. A good cross found that DePaula was unmarked in the penalty area, but the striker’s contact was very bad and the ball went straight back to the wing.
The early changes in the second half minutes saw Syafiq Ahmad playing for Nor Azam, which brought more support to de Paula, but it also brought greater energy and motivation to Malaysia as they began to seek to replicate a certain threat. Managed to produce at the end of the first half.
Safawi Rasid appeared to be a pale shadow of his great self, and Luqman Hakim was forced to take action to make the teenager participate in the national team for the first time. However, as the UAE continues to control the game, Kortrijk players can only do more tracking work instead of providing any offensive threats.
However, Farizal was still busy with the two goalkeepers in the second stage. The Johor Darul Tazim goalkeeper blocked De Lima with a one-handed stop in the 64th minute and again used Mahbu in the 81st minute. Let Malaysia continue to hunt down things in the game.
The home team’s second goal finally arrived in the 83rd minute, and De Lima arc shot past Farizal. With the influx of Malaysia to gain something from the game, the gates really opened well late in the game, first Mahbut, then De Lima got their support to ensure a full victory over Malaysia.
