This is a shot of the offending laser (thanks bbcommunity) that was directed at Indonesian goalkeeper Markus Rihihina. Yes, it was totally wrong but I don't believe that it was that laser that beat the Merah Putih. Malaysia just played their hearts out and with a lot of pride. They obviously had to answer a lot of questions whether they could compete with Indonesia especially after that 5-1 drubbing at the Gelora Bung Karno to open the Group A quarterfinals. Simply put, Malaysia got the job done with one superb attack after another. If anything, they illustrated for all that one does not give up on the ball until it's out of play. Good job, Tigers.
In case you don't know, Neil Etheridge had lasers also on him in Vietnam (against Vietnam) and in Indonesia. Simon McMenemy complained about it too but we went out and played the game.
But you gotta love this 2010 Suzuki Cup. In years past, I would watch it but never all throughout. It isn't solely the Philippines' performance but all the games have been great.
