Malaysia 2-2 Canada- Sultan Azlan Shah Cup 2008

Some poor finishing and dreadful defending saw hosts Malaysia draw a game they should have won at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh. This was Malaysia’s first draw in the tournament, and they now have four points to show for their efforts in the tournament.

Chua Boon Huat had a great chance to put Malaysia ahead in the 20th minute when he had only Canadian keeper Michael Masood between him and the goal, but he muffed it up. He however atoned for it a minute later, when his stick deflected Tengku Tajuddin’s pass into the goal.

Canada’s equaliser came due to a mistake from the Malaysian goalkeeper. S. Kumar’s failure to clear the ball saw Sukhwinder Singh take advantage of the situation to put Canada back on level terms.

Mohd Amin Rahim, who has been rather disappointing in this tournament, struck in the 31st minute from a penalty corner to make it 2-1 to Malaysia.

Scott Tupper scored the final goal of the game two minutes after the hour mark from a penalty corner to level the match.

Malaysia next play Belgium, who shocked Pakistan 5-3 to get their first win in the tournament.
