A large majority of our readers believe Malaysia have what it takes to overcome their eternal rivals, Indonesia
A two day poll revealed that a whopping 84.6% of Goal Malaysia readers voted for Ong Kim Swee's charges to triumph over rivals, Indonesia in the epic SEA Games semi final clash.

Head-to-head records show an even number of wins for both teams from 14 SEA Games meetings dating back to the year 1977; 6 wins each. The last time Malaysia lost to Indonesia was during the 1999 SEA Games held in Brunei which resulted in a humiliating 6-0 defeat.

It must be noted here that the Young Tigers hold an unbeaten streak from the 2009 SEA Games and our readers are backing Malaysia to make it to the final for the third time.

Kim Swee's team left it late to seal their semi final berth with a heart-stopping 2-1 win against Vietnam in the final Group A match.

The Under-23 boys will take on Indonesia at 5.30p.m. on Thursday at the Zayyar Thiri Stadium in what should be a tightly contested match.
