Liverpool Pawned Malaysia National Squad !

Hey there. Liverpool went to Malaysia to fight the Malaysia National Squad on 16 July 2011, as part of its pre-season Asian Tour 2011.

Well, it is to be expected for Liverpool to win (Like, d'uh). However the score just goes to show how different it is, the standard of South Easat Asian football as compared to Europe.

The final score is 6-3, after Liverpool tied to Malaysia 1-1 during the sluggish first half.

The Malaysian squad showed their determination and grit, especially with their attacks at the opponents area, but it proved a very tall order to beat one of the best European football clubs.

Even without many of their star players (Stevie, Reina) & without coach Kenny Dalglish, Liverpool is a tough nut to crack.

However, kudos to Malaysian fottball players, especially Safee Sali (Exported to Pelita Jaya FC, where he performed very well there) who scored Malaysia's second goal through a curling free kick to beat Liverpool's goalie.

Here's hoping that Malaysia Squad will improve and become one of the serious contenders of international football arena.
