Despite going into the field without the key services of golden striker Raymond Gunemba, midfielder and skipper David Muta and stopper Alwin Komolong, the Koriak Upaiga captained side managed to secure 2 goals in the first half through the boots of PNG’s lethal weapon Tommy Semmy to seal the win at full time.
Both teams had equal opportunities in the second half of play but most attempts were far and wide forcing the Malaysian team to remain scoreless till the full time whistle.
An attempt by Malaysia almost found the nets but met the cross-bars and was deflected. The Kapuls ball control was better and well coordinated even with a couple of bench players been utilized during the friendly.
After their loss to PNG, the Malaysian National Team will play New Caledonia and Fiji later this month. PNGFM / ONEPNG
