    Jiang Ning latches on to a loose ball in the Malaysian penalty area. He takes a pop shot with his left foot but it was straight at Farizal.
  • 77'
    Razman with Malaysia's best chance. He stormed down the right flank and tried to beat the keeper with a deft chip. The keeper scrambles back but the ball hits the bar and goes out.

    China with an excellent play in the Malaysia penalty box - playing constant one-touch passes. The defence in absolute shambles.  Zheng Long with the final shot but he sent it to the stands.
  • 65'
    Almost a howler by Farizal as he failed to properly control a back pass  from Helmi. The ball was close to going in but China get a corner.

    A simple header for the big man who rose above everyone else to head home for China's second.
  • 56'
    Still no attack from the Malayan Tigers as they struggle to gain possession of the ball.
  • 54'
    Malaysia thwarted another build up by China. It's obvious that they are playing a very defensive formation - throwing as many as six players in the box when defending.
  • 52'
    Zheng Long tries a snapshot from outside the box. He struck it well but it took a deflection for a corner.
  • 49'
    China have been pressing for the second goal but Malaysia, time and time again, are doing ever so well at the back to keep them out.
  • 45'
    China kickoff the second half!
  • Only the freekick goal separate the two sides at the break. Can Malaysia muster a comeback or will they fall deeper? Stay with us for more updates.
  • 43'
    Goal Zheng Long
    Off a freekick, the shot swerved through a broken wall and into the net. There was nothing Farizal could do to save it.
  • 41'
    China had a decent build-up on the left after intercepting a stray pass. With the defence caught napping, a shot was fired but it slams off the cross bar.
  • 35'
    With about 10 minutes to go in the first half, the scores are still level. Can Malaysia hold China?
  • 18'
    Safiq releases Azamuddin down the right flank. He beats the defenders for pace to cross but he hits it too hard and out.
  • 11'
    MALAYSIA LINEUP: Farizal (GK), Asra, Razman, Aidil Zafuan, Safiq (C), Norshahrul, Gurusamy, Kunanlan, Amri, Helmi, Azamuddin
  • 10'
    It's been 10 minutes and still no real threat from either end. Malaysia are holding strong at the back with Aidil Zafuan.
  • 1'
    And the match is underway!
