KUANTAN – Impian Malaysia sekurang- kurangnya menduduki tempat ketiga pada Kejohanan Hoki Piala Asia VIII, berkecai apabila kecundang 7-6 menerusi penentuan pukulan penalti kepada China pada perlawanan penuh dramatik di Stadium Hoki Indera Mahkota di sini, semalam.

Sebelum itu, kedua-dua pasukan terikat 3-3 pada masa sebenar dalam pertemuan menentukan tempat ketiga dan keempat, yang terpaksa diheret ke masa tambahan.

Debaran memuncak apabila kedua-dua pasukan turut terikat 3-3 selepas lima pukulan penalti sehingga memaksa pukulan ulangan penalti pusingan kedua.

Selepas lapan pukulan disempurnakan, kedua-dua pasukan terikat pada kedudukan 6-6.

Namun, nasib tidak menyebelahi Malaysia apabila pukulan Nabil Fiqri Mohamad Nor berjaya ditampan oleh penjaga gol China, Feng Su Ri, sementara penjaga gol Malaysia pula, Kumar Subramaniam gagal menepis pukulan kapten pasukan China, Yi Song.

Perlawanan penuh mendebarkan itu turut disaksikan oleh Sultan Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah; Sultan Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah; Presiden Persekutuan Hoki Malaysia (PHM), Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah serta dua menteri iaitu Menteri Belia dan Sukan, Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek dan Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Air Asia, Datuk Seri Tony Fernandez turut menyaksikan perlawanan tersebut yang kemudiannya menyampaikan hadiah kepada pasukan Malaysia, sementara Ismail Sabri pula menyampaikan hadiah kepada pasukan China.

Malaysia bermula garang apabila mengejutkan pasukan hoki dari Tembok Besar itu dengan gol pendahuluan seawal minit pertama (48 saat) hasil jaringan Ismail Abu.

Bagaimanapun, kesilapan Kumar Subramaniam yang menjatuhkan pemain lawan menghadiahkan China pukulan penalti pada minit ke-19 yang disempurnakan oleh Yi Song.

Pun begitu, pasukan negara yang mendapat sokongan kira-kira 4,000 penonton menggandakan asakan dan sekali lagi mendahului pasukan China apabila memperoleh gol kedua hasil jaringan Chua Boon Huat pada minit ke-32 selepas menampan pukulan sudut yang disempurnakan oleh kapten, Mohd. Madzli Ikmar Mohd. Nor.

Malaysia bagaimanapun, sekali lagi berjaya memperoleh gol ketiga hasil pukulan Hafifihafiz Hanafi pada minit 64 yang merembat kencang bola lantun yang terkena badan penjaga gol China.

Sementara itu, jurulatih hoki negara, Tai Beng Hai tetap berpuas hati dengan prestasi yang ditunjukkan oleh anak buahnya memandangkan mereka hanya membuat persiapan dalam tempoh kurang lima bulan bagi menghadapi kejuaraan itu termasuk Piala Sultan Azlan Shah, baru-baru ini.

“Memang kita mendahului, tetapi walaupun kita main bagus macam mana pun, ia sebenarnya tetap bergantung kepada tuah,” katanya kepada pemberita.

KUANTAN: Malaysia failed to retain their third placing in the Asia Cup hockey tournament after going down 6-7 to China in sudden-death penalty shoot-out in the classification match at the Kuantan Hockey Stadium here yesterday.

Both teams were level at 3-3 in regulation time. Even extra-time failed to break the deadlock.

The Malaysians had four chances to claim victory. They led three times in the match proper. Then, in the shoot-out, they were just a flick away from victory.

In the end, China prevailed. In the mandatory five flicks, only Mohd Shukri Mutalib, Mohd Amin Rahim and Jiwa Mohan converted while Nabil Fiqri and Kelvinder Singh fluffed their attempts.

For China, Song Yi, Hu Hui Ren and Liu Xian Tang converted their flicks with Lu Feng Ren and Sun Tian Jun missed theirs.

In the sudden-death shoot-out, Malaysia scored through Amin, Jiwa and Shukri while Nabil against missed his flick.

China converted all four through Song Yi, Hui Ren, Xian Tang and Tian Jun to claim third spot.

This is the second time that China have made the podium in the Asia Cup. The first time was in 1982, when they also finished third.

The only consolation for Malaysia is that they will join China in the November qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup.

The game came alive in the very first minute – that was how long it took Malaysia to open accounts.

Kelvinder Singh collected the ball in the middle and dribbled into the D before sending a cross which was deflected into goal by Ismail Abu.

Instead of going for the kill, Malaysia took their foot off the pedal and this gave the Chinese plenty of space to attack. And the Chinese duly equalised in the 19th minute.

Xiang Tang collected a cross from Na Yu Bo and worked his way into the D, where he was felled by goalkeeper S. Kumar. Skipper Song Yi converted the penalty stroke.

Malaysia regained their lead in the 32nd minute off their first penalty corner when Mohd Amin’s low flick was deflected into goal by Chua Boon Huat.

The second-half saw both teams playing well in patches. Still, it did not take long for China to pull level again. Again it was Song Yi who came to China’s rescue, slotting home a penalty corner goal in the 47th minute.

Malaysia, who missed two clear-cut chances to go ahead after that, finally regained their lead in the 65th minutes through Nabil Fiqri Mohd Nor.

But like the two previous occasions, China equalised for the third time. This time Jiang Xia Shang found the net in the 67th minute to take the game into extra-time.

MALAYSIA: S. Kumar, Mohd Amin Rahim, Mohd Madzli Ikmar, Mohd Shahrun Nubli, Mohd Shukri Mutalib, Ismail Abu, Azlan Misron, Kelvinder Singh, Jiwa Mohan, Tengku Ahmad Tajuddin, Nabil Fiqri Mohd Nor.

Reserves: Chua Boon Huat, S. Selvaraju, Engku Abdul Malek, Jivan Mohan, Hafifihafiz Hanafi.

CHINA: Su Ri Feng, Sun Tian Jun, Jiang Xi Shang, Song Yi, Lu Feng Hui, Guo Zhong Qiang, Liu Xian Tang, Cui Yong Xin, Meng Jun, Na Yu Bu, Hu Hui Ren.

Reserves: Li Jia Jia, Chen Jin, Dong Yang, Sun Zhi Xin, Sun Long.

KUANTAN: South Korea won the Air Asia-Asia Cup for the third time when they beat Pakistan 1-0 in an exciting final at the Kuantan Hockey Stadium here yesterday.

The Koreans have now equalled the three titles won by Pakistan in the series. South Korea’s two other triumphs were in 1994 and 1999 while Pakistan had won it in 1982, 1985 and 1989.

In yesterday’s final, both teams had chances to settle the issue early but it was the Koreans, who played a fast game in the second-half, who finally prevailed when they scored the only goal of the match off their third penalty corner of the match.

Kim Byung-hoon’s 66th minute strike – a trademark drag flick – took his goal tally to six, making him the top scorer of the tournament.

The match was a see-saw battle, with both sides attacking at every opportunity.

Pakistan even had the ball in the net early in the second-half but Rehan Butt’s effort was ruled out for an infringement.

Pakistan goalkeeper Salman Akhbar also played a grand game to keep the Koreans at bay in the early stages.

The first-half saw both team getting three penalty corners each but all to no avail.

You Hyo-sik and Hong Eun-seung capped a fine night for the Koreans when they won the best player of the tournament and man-of-the-match awards respectively.

Malaysia’s S. Kumar (pic) was voted the best goalkeeper.

Korean coach Cho Myung-jun described the win as “the dawn of a new era for Korean hockey”.

“We will look at this win as the start of better things to come. It was not an easy final although we were confident of our chances,” he said.

“Pakistan played one of their best matches and could have scored early.

“But our plan to have a go at them in the second-half proved crucial.”
