PETALING JAYA – The Malayan Tigers squad made history by securing a 3-3 draw against South Korea in the final match of Group E in the 2023 Asia Cup earlier.

In the match at Al Janoub Stadium, the national squad under Kim Pan-gon’s guidance maintained a strong defense with key players like Dion Cools, Shahrul Saad, and Dominict Tan.

The Taeguk Warriors team appeared to dominate much of the game with several attacking moves through key players like Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in.

The sought-after goal finally came from Jeong Woo-yeong’s header in the 21st minute from a corner kick situation.

Continuing into the second half, the national squad intensified their attacks and managed to equalize through an impressive strike by sensation player Faisal Halim in the 51st minute.

The momentum continued as Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) stalwart, Arif Aiman Hanapi, put Malaysia ahead with a penalty kick in the 62nd minute.

Shaken by the goal, South Korea doubled their efforts and equalized again through Lee Kang-in’s free kick in the 82nd minute.

Malaysia’s fate took a turn for the worse when South Korea took the lead with opposing captain Son Heung-min scoring the third goal from a penalty kick in injury time.

However, naturalized striker Romel Morales emerged as a hero by scoring the equalizer in injury time of the 115th minute to ensure the national team returned home with a valuable point.

The result saw South Korea remain as runners-up in Group E, with Bahrain emerging as the group champion after defeating Jordan 1-0.
