    3.50

    Mahali Jasuli

    A commanding figure in central midfield despite playing out of position. Tried to initiate attacks, but did not forget his defensive duties.

    Azamuddin Akil

    Very industrious on the right flank and tried to take on the Qatar left-back at every opportunity. Also did well to help Reuben out at right-back.

    Amri Yahyah

    Mohd Khyril Muhymeen
