Malaysia defeats Thailand 5-3 on penalties to advance to King’s Cup final

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept. 22 (Bernama) — After a 1-1 draw, Malaysia beat Thailand 5-3 on penalties in regulation play at Thailand’s 700th Anniversary Chiang Mai Stadium to clinch the third-place finish. It has reached the final of 48 King’s Cups.

Ravel Corbin Ong’s goal in the 32nd minute gave Malaysia the lead before Pantha Hembiboon’s goal equalized in stoppage time, before both teams stepped back onto the pitch to seal the tie. through penalty shootouts.

Indeed, it was a nail-biting penalty shootout that both teams wanted to win, but Malaysian goalkeeper Ahmad Sihan Hazmi Mohammed was forced by Thailand’s kicker Supachok, who was serving his team’s fourth penalty. I had another idea when I made a nice save from Sarachat.

Corbin Ong, who gave Malaysia the lead and was the best player on the pitch throughout the match, stepped up to send the Thai keeper in the wrong direction to ensure victory.

South Korea’s team, led by head coach Kim Pan Gon, also had Dion Kools, Mohammed Shafiq Ahmad, Matthew Davis and Declan Lambert complete their respective penalty kicks.

In Sunday’s final, Malaysia will face Tajikistan, who beat Trinidad and Tobago in their other match.

Malaysia won the King’s Cup four times in 1972, 1976, 1977 and 1978.

Today’s loss was Thailand’s second consecutive loss to Malaysia after losing in the World Cup 2022/Asian Cup 2023 qualifiers last June.
