Team Captain Marhan Jalil sees there are still some things that can be fixed by him and his teammates who have now set a benchmark to go down in action in every match and win the match.

“For me for today’s result, it can still be improved even if we draw 1-1. We started slowly but in the third and fourth quarters we increased the duration of the match.

“What we will try to do for the next match, we will continue to improve the weaknesses and find a victory in the match.

“We have set a benchmark where every game we play is to win,” said Marhan, who scored Malaysia’s only goal in today’s match.

“Regardless of whether it is a friendly match or a test match, our standards are the same because this is our process to continue to bring the spirit of mentality to win in the team.

“We will play in every match mentally, emotionally, and physically ready to win.

“Today’s match we managed to equalize through Marhan Jalil’s goal, and Marhan as the team captain always showed the quality he has to raise the team’s spirit to try to get the equalizer.

“After the actual match ended, we held a Shoot-Out training and we won the shoot-out training, so it was a good sign in terms of mentality and mindset to get the win,” said Arulselvaraj.
