Malaysia Champs again !

Malaysia defended their gold medal when they defeated Indonesia 5-4 on penalties in the final of the 26th SEA Games football tournament at the Utama Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, in Jakarta, Monday night (21/11/11).

Malaysian's winning goal in the penalty shoot-out came through team captain Baddrol Bakhtiar when the two countries were tied 4-4 after Ferdinan Sinaga's penalty kick was blocked by Khairul Fahmi Che Mat.

The defeat squashed the hope of Indonesian squad under Rahmad Darmawan to collect gold after their last football gold in 1991.
