Malaysia face host nation final hurdle in title defence

The Malaysian U23 squad are just one game away from retaining their SEA Games men’s football title as they take on Indonesia in tonight’s final, which kicks off at 7:30 at Jakarta’s Gelora Bung Karno Stadium.

The hosts have won the event twice before, in 1987 and 1991, but have mustered just one silver in the past 20 years.

Myanmar, who lost 1-0 to the holders in Saturday’s semifinal, and Vietnam, who lost 2-0 to Indonesia, will face off for the bronze medal at 4pm today.
