Title hopes dashed

When Malaysia was hoping to win their maiden Azlan Shah Cup title and the teams which lined up not as juggernauts as Spain, Holland, Germany, Argentina or Australia, yet the title now remains elusive.

While we won the 1st 2 matches against Poland and Japan, we lost the following 2 marches against Indian and South Korea. Now Malaysia will be going against Canada for final group match before facing them again for 3rd place play off.

Malaysia has been to finals for 5 times and ended up as Bridesmaid.

Having Takema as penalty corner coach (specially flown for this tournament) and Ronael Otlhmans as chief coach didn't help the team any further compared to local coaches like Wallace Tan and Stephen Van Huezen.

The management committee is going back to drawing board, which they have been doing always. Only thing, picture is not drawn yet.
