THE GAME LAST NIGHT WAS IMPECCABLY AWESOME.
Perhaps it was the first time watching a football game in a big crowd, or the too-intense-for-words game. Finally deciding to go down to the college cafe after some blubbering tirades to my friends and deciding to ditch the idea of watching the game on an online stream after pacing down the room waiting for it to load; was one of the best decisions I've made in my life.
This was the first time I've (really) watched a football game in a crowd (most of my football game endeavours happens at 2.45 am, all aloneee) and seriously, the college cafe was SO SO PACKED and it was awesome seeing the celebration after the last penalty goal.
Anyway. Seriously, the game was PERFECT! Except for the diving part, ergh. Not one could expect what would happen at the end because it was down to 1-1 and when it was up for Malaysian team to score the 5th and final penalty goal, the current score was 3-3! HOW AWESOME WAS THAT and for a few seconds there it seemed like the Indonesian goalkeeper blocked the goal and somehow, the ball just rolled down at a speed of like 0.1m/s or something to the net!!!
HOW AWESOME WAS THAT!
Alhamdulillah, congratulations to the Malaysian team! The victory would be even sweeter if all of us Malaysian football supporters remain cool about the whole thing and not rubbing it into the Indonesian side's faces. After all, it's not about where you are from and what is your nationality, it's about having good sportsmanship, and after all, we are fellow Muslims and forsaking our ties just because of a football game is quite silly, dontcha think?
