More eyes on Malaysian football

It all started with a phone call from BBC's correspondent in Malaysia Jennifer Pak two years ago. She was interested to know about the Malaysia-Indonesia final at the 2009 AFF Suzuki Cup.

Since then many had wanted to know more about our national team and the players.

Even Singapore's Straits Times Lee Min Kok and New Paper Sazali Abdul Aziz were interested to know more about the recent FA of Singapore and FA of Malaysia tie up.

I also met up with Jakarta Casual's Antony Sutton as we discussed about the local football scene at Greenman Pub in Bukit Bintang.

And not too long ago, I was contacted by leading football writer John Duerden as he wanted to know more about match-fixing in Asia, especially Malaysia, as seen here.

Good or bad, more and more people are paying attention to Malaysian football. As they say, good or bad publicity is still publicity.

And now to take on Singapore in the Pre-World Cup tournament.
