Indonesia loses, again, to Malaysia in SEA Games final

The Jakarta Post | Mon, 11/21/2011 10:33 PM


Indonesia lost to Malaysia in a penalty shootout on Monday in the Southeast Asian Games soccer final at Bung Karno Stadium in Senayan, South Jakarta.

The teams were tied 1-1 until the extra time.

Indonesia scored early in the fourth minute with a header from Gunawan Dwi Cahyo. However, Malaysia controlled the game after Omar Mohamad Asrarudin equalized in the 35th minute.

In the penalty shootout, two Indonesian players failed to score, while only one Malaysian striker failed.

Malaysia previously beat Indonesia 1-0 in the qualifying round.

The Indonesian and Malaysian squads have faced off 13 times in the history of the Southeast Asian Games, ending in six victories for each country and a 0-0 tie during a qualifying match in the 1979 Games.

Two of the nations’ SEA Games matches were final-round showdowns that were held when Indonesia hosted the Games: Malaysia’s 1-0 triumph in 1979 while playing Indonesia and Indonesia’s 1-0 victory in 1987.

Semarang-born local soccer legend Ribut Waidi scored the only goal in 1987’s final match in injury time.

That match was also held at Bung Karno Stadium, then called the Senayan Main Stadium, in Senayan, South Jakarta.

Indonesia has twice won SEA Games soccer gold: first in 1987 and again in 1991, in the Philippines.

Fantastic malaysia


Very rare that we hear positive comments from Indonesian spectators if their team were to lose against Malaysia. But tonight both Indonesians and Malaysians  gave almost equally positive assessment and opinions after the game. Congratulations to both Malaysia and Indonsia. Keep up the good sporting spirit.
