HANOI, May 15 — The national men’s sepak takraw squad kept their nerves in check in front of the host crowd to beat Vietnam and take home the silver medal in the 31st SEA Games’ team event in the final match of the round-robin tournament, today.The 2-1 win at the Hoang Mai Sports Complex here saw the squad under Abdul Talib Ahmad defending their achievement at the 2019 edition in the Philippines.The match against Singapore was hotly contested from the get-go, and Malaysia wasted no time to pull ahead through Luqman Hakim Shamsudin, who deftly found an open space in the penalty box and score a blistering goal in the fourth minute.The national side started off well through the team comprising Muhammad Faisal Mohd Fuad, Muhammad Noraizat Nordin and Norfaizzul Abd Razak who recorded a 21-15, 21-6 win over Dau Van Hoang, Ngo Huy Long and Do Manh Tuan.Article type: metered.The country’s silver medal was confirmed when the second team of Muhammad Zarif Merican Ibrahim Merican, Muhammad Afifuddin Razali and Aidil Aiman Azwawi beat Huynh Ngoc Sang, Nguyen Huy Quyen and Tang Minh Khoa 21-17, 21-9.However, it took only three minutes for Singapore to reply as Malaysian keeper Muhammad Azri Ab Ghani failed to save an attempt from outside the box by Singapore midfielder Nur Muhammad Shah Shahiran.But the host nation’s third team comprising Le Ang Tuan, Vuong Minh Chau and Nguyen Tien Dat managed to earn a consolation point with a 24-25, 21-23 win over the young Malaysian trio of Muhammad Haziq Hairul Nizam, Muhammad Zulhusni Basri and Muhammad Redwan Hakim Muhammad.Chef de Mission (CDM) Datuk Nur Azmi Ahmad also wore a traditional Malay outfit in similar colours to Dhabitah.

National ace Muhammad Noraizat was happy at defending the silver medal after the national team went through a difficult phase during the Covid-19 pandemic besides being away from their families for the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration.Luqman Hakim had a golden opportunity to add to his first goal in the 32nd minute after receiving a beautiful pass from his teammate but his shot failed to get pass vigilant Zaiful Nizam.“Firstly, I wish to express my gratitude for being able to take home the silver medal for the country.I also wish to apologise to all Malaysians and family (as we could only contribute the silver medal).Both teams played with intensity in the second half, but there were no real attempts from both teams until the 76th minute, when Singapore striker Kweh Jia Jin Glenn sent his shot ballooning over the goal.“This success is also very meaningful as we could not celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri with our families and the training in Janda Baik bore fruit for the Malaysian team,” said the squad’s killer after the match here, today.The gold medal was won by Thailand while Vietnam and Cambodia shared the bronze medal.That did not, however, deter the Malaysians from trying to equalise, which they did through a header by Muhammad Faiz Amer Runnizar off a corner kick in the 82nd minute.

Tomorrow, the national squad will continue its challenge in the inter ‘regu’ event with Malaysia starting the group-level campaign against Thailand.— Bernama You May Also Like.While the 2-2 score at the end of the final whistle meant that Malaysia failed to be the first team to qualify in their group, the draw ended any chance of Singapore qualifying for the semi-finals as they only have five points from four matches.
