Jakarta: Malaysia will once again be donning their "lucky" blue away jerseys when they face Indonesia in the second leg of the AFF Suzuki Cup final at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium on Wednesday.
"Apparently the blue-coloured shirt has brought us quite a bit of luck," said Malaysia team manager Subahan Kamal. "Coach K. Rajagobal believes in that so we will stick with it for the second leg of the final."
The statistics seem to support that view as Malaysia have been unbeaten so far in the blue kit, winning three of the four game that they have played in it. Meanwhile, they have yet to win a game in the yellow shirts, losing 5-1 to Indonesia and drawing 0-0 against Vietnam.
Jakarta: Although his side hold a three-goal lead in the AFF Suzuki Cup final, Malaysia coach K. Rajagobal has insisted that they have no intention to simply park the bus in front of goal for the second leg against Indonesia on Wednesday.
A brace by Safee Sali and an Ashari Samsuddin pile-driver in the first leg has put the Tigers within touching distance of their first ever AFF Suzuki Cup triumph. Rajagobal, however, believes that it will be no easy task to preserve that advantage in the return match at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium
