Meanwhile Malaysia continue to waste money on football via FAM to produce only jaguh kampong.
The national team cannot even beat three division two club sides in Japan!
The FIFA ranking of Malaysia is so low that I am too ashamed to mention.
Soon coach Rajagopal will become the scapegoat for the failure.
Expect a thrashing from Barcelona tomorrow?
